APIs and Mashups r ur new ABCs for E-Learning
JULY 30, 2010
An API (Application Program Interface) enables an interface from a piece of software to communicate with another piece of software (in its simplest form) or multiple pieces of software (called a mashup). Facilitation now exists between the pieces of software, similar to interaction between a human and a computer (again, in a basic example). However there are vendors who sell their API solution wrapped in a piece of software.
