HTML5 Virtual Classroom

REST API

BrainCert provides a RESTful interface to the resources in the Virtual Classroom e.g. classes, video recordings, shopping cart, etc. Once your API key has authenticated a BrainCert user, it can call a REST API endpoint using the obtained access token and get the corresponding resources. A simple example is getting the authenticated user's list of live classes using the API endpoint.

If you are new to REST, you can understand the basics at http://en.wikipedia.com/wiki/REST. Please note that the endpoints support JSON (recommended) and XML. The documentation allows you to get responses using JSON or XML where relevant.

Virtual Classroom API supports scheduling and launching live classes, recording sessions in HD (720p), Ultra HD audio/video conferencing, screen sharing, group chat, file sharing, interactive whiteboards, share presentations, sell classes using shopping cart, create discount coupons - all from within your own website.


Fully Managed and Hosted

BrainCert Virtual Classroom is fully managed and hosted. Do not worry about servers, installations, hosting, set up, etc. You focus on your business while we take care of technology.
