Learning Object v2

Find the best learning objects in a flash ⚑

Introduction

This page shows you how to access our Learning Objects Index of more than 2.5M+ learning objects (LO) from various sources such as YouTube, Coursera, edX, Apple podcasts, Google Play store, etc.

You can view shell, python, php and JavaScript code examples in the dark areas.

Authentication

Inokufu API Cloud uses API keys to allow access to our APIs. You can access this API in two ways:

  • Rapid API: this is recommended for small to medium usage. You'll need to create a Rapid API account here, then to subscribe to one of our plan here. Rapid API will then provide you with your Developer API key

  • Direct customer: this is reserved for very high usage and custom needs. If you want to know more about our enterprise plans, please feel free to contact our Inokufu sales team.

Inokufu APIs expects for the API key to be included in API requests to the server in a header that looks like the following:

Rapid API
Direct customer
Rapid API
"x-rapidapi-key": "SAY-FRIEND-AND-ENTER"
Direct customer
"x-api-key": "SAY-FRIEND-AND-ENTER"

Make sure to replace SAY-FRIEND-AND-ENTER with your own Developer API key.

Code examples

See here for Rapid API codes example.

See below for Direct customer access:

Shell
Python
PHP
Javascript
Shell
# With shell, you can just pass the correct header with each request
curl "api_endpoint_here"
-H "x-api-key: SAY-FRIEND-AND-ENTER"
Python
import requests
url = 'api_endpoint_here'
headers = {'x-api-key': 'SAY-FRIEND-AND-ENTER'}
r = requests.get(url, headers=headers)
r.json()
PHP
$key = 'SAY-FRIEND-AND-ENTER';
$curl = curl_init('api_endpoint_here');
curl_setopt($curl,CURLOPT_CAINFO,__DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'certInokufu.cer');
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('x-api-key:'.$key));
$data = curl_exec($curl);
if($data===false){
var_dump(curl_error($curl));
};
Javascript
apiKeySecured = 'SAY-FRIEND-AND-ENTER';
const search = async () => {fetch('api_endpoint_here', {headers: {"x-api-key": apiKeySecured}} ).then(function(response) {
if(response.ok) {
response.json().then(function(json) {
const resJson = JSON.stringify(json)
//console.log(resJson);
return resJson;
})}})};

For Demo purpose, you can use this API key : demo29331806e87fe8d34d03ddaad2b1b454b58a5b9d4f1385d4f86bb321 but beware both request speed and number of daily calls are limited with this key.

Query Parameters

Query parameters must be included in the URL.

Parameter

Type

Default

Required

Description

keywords

string

​

Yes

Keywords help you refine the topic of the learning objects. Best results are obtained when using the most commonly used designation for a skill, a competency or a job.

lang

string

en

Yes

Language of the LO such as en (english), fr(french), etc. Use the /langendpoint to get the full list of languages currently supported by the API.

type

string

video

Yes

Type of the LO such as video, mooc, book, etc. Use the /typeendpoint to get the full list of types currently supported by the API.

bloom

string

discover

Yes

​Bloom objective of the LO such as discover, understand, do, etc.

Use the /bloomendpoint to get the full list of Bloom objectives currently supported by the API.

sort

string

popularity

Yes

Currently supported sorting order are random or popularity. If empty, response will be sorted by popularity.

model

string

strict

Yes

The model used by the API to determine if a LO is relevant based on the provided keywords. Two models are currently supported:

  • strict model gives you less results but is usually more relevant (less false positive).

  • extended model gives you more results but with a higher probability of false positive.

max

integer

10

Yes

Maximum number of LO returned per page. Value must be between 1 to 20.

page

integer

0

Yes

The number of returned page, starting at 0.

ageMax

integer

​

No

The maximum age associated to the LO. For example, if you want to see videos for kids only you can set ageMax=10.

ageMin

integer

​

No

The minimum age associated to the LO. For example, if you want to see textbooks for adult only you can set ageMin=18.

learningTimeMax

integer

​

No

The maximum length of the LO in minute (video only). For example, if you want to see 5 min or less videos only, you can set learningTimeMax=5.

learningTimeMin

integer

​

No

The minimum length of the LO in minute (video only). For example, if you want to see 1h or more videos only, you can set learningTimeMin=60.

levelMax

decimal

​

No

The maximum level of the LO. The level is indicated as decimal number ranging from -1 (beginner) to 1 (advanced). For example, if you want to see a MOOC with a level for beginner, you can set levelMax=-0.5.

levelMin

decimal

​

No

The minimum level of the LO. The level is indicated as decimal number ranging from -1 (beginner) to 1 (advanced). For example, if you want to see a MOOC with a level for intermediate or above, you can set levelMin=0.2.

popularityMin

decimal

​

No

Popularity is an indicator of the popularity of the LO as measured by its number of likes, stars, views, etc. This parameter enables you to set a threshold to filter out LO below a certain popularity. This value ranges from 0 (low popularity) to 1 (exceptionally popular).
