The Department of Education is taking its data to the people.
The agency is spearheading a new initiative to make more of its data open and developer-friendly via web application programming interfaces, also known as APIs.
The department wants feedback from the public as to which datasets and online tools should be more open.
Suggestions from the agency:
- Program Information Publication System (in development, currently program pages on ED.gov)
- ED Facts
- State Education Data Profiles
- College Navigator
- Student Aid Data
- School Data
- Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program Lender and Guaranty Agency Reports
- ED Pubs
Comments will be open until August 20.
