Create your own itslearning tools!
The standard itslearning version contains the basic tools you need to start using itslearning. But, perhaps you see the need for tools that are not included in the standard version? Do you want to make a tool that suits your own organisation's needs?
We have found the solution you need. Our software development kit (SDK) allows you to create your own tools, or customise tools made by other developers. The tools are seamlessly integrated in it’s learning. Examples of tools that can be made are quizzes, podcast tools, and brainstorming tools, to name a few. Your imagination is the limit!
We now invite you to start using the SDK during the beta phase, and when we release your application may be shared with other customers. To get an overview of the opportunities, please visit http://developer.itslearning.com.
Who can develop tools and applications?
In order to use the SDK you must have some previous knowledge of software programming. itslearning is developed in C#, but tools can be developed in other languages such as PHP, Java or similar.
How does it work?
itslearning has a core which is responsible for security and content management. There is no content inside the core, but the learning content is provided by a pluggable model. The core functionality is exposed to a REST API which is accessed through HTTPS (or HTTP). The plug-ins are called Applications or Learning Tools.
The SDK is the gateway to your own it’s learning applications!
