What is the Author API?

The Learnosity Author API is an authoring system that is embedded inside your own content management system, allowing for a more customized and flexible implementation for your authoring environment. 

Note: integrating the Author API into your application is an alternative to using the cloud-based Author Site, which offers a similar feature set, just not geared towards integration or customization.

You can view demos of the various Author API features mentioned here. The important thing to remember about the embedded Author API is that it may look totally different to the example pages on our demos site and in our images, because the interface is highly customizable.


The Author API provides authors with the power to manage their organisation's Item bank, as well as access the Learnosity Question Editor to create and modify both Learnosity Questions and Features.

Once Tags have been programmatically created, authors are able to add these Tags to Items and Activities. 

Authors can tag Items via the Tags tab on the side navigation. Activities can be tagged within the Tags tab of the Author API Activity Builder.

As with the Item bank, Authors also have the ability to view and manage all of their Activities using an Activity list.

Authors can build assessments with our easy-to-use Author API Activity Builder.
