Desire2Learn Launches Web Services for Learning Management

CMS/LMS developer Desire2Learn this week launched Web Services 1.0, a set of Web-based enhancements for the D2L Learning Environment and D2L Learning Platform. Modules included with the 1.0 release include "organization structure management, enrollment management, and gradebook entry and lookup," according to the company.

The Web Services product is designed to allow institutions to develop custom applications more easily and integrate them with Desire2Learn's existing LMS solutions. It also allows existing applications to be merged in the Learning Environment.

Built using SOAP standards, Web Services 1.0 is designed to be platform-neutral, supporting .NET, Java, and Perl. For security, it uses SSL encryption and token-based authentication and authorization.

Further information about Web Services can be found here.
