API Technical Reference

REST Web Service Interface

The REST API allows you to manage Courseware and Assessments data around locations, classes, administrators instructors and learners.

Since the API is based on REST principles, it's very easy to write and test applications. You can use your browser to access URLs, and you can use pretty much any HTTP client in any programming language to interact with the API.
NOTE:The documentation outlined below encompasses the full extent of resources available to organizations who wish to develop an API or SSO connection to PLE for their systems. 

Base URL

All URLs referenced in the documentation have the following base:

Test Environment: https://ed-api.nextple.platoweb.com/help/index

NOTE: The test environment is regularly purged and mirrored to the production environment. This may happen without warning.

Production Environment: https://ed-api.ple.platoweb.com/help/index

Data Formats

The API provides the ability to transmit data in XML format.

It is very important that as you issue API requests you include the appropriate Content-Type header with the HTTP request.

XML: Content-type: text/xml
