While there are many ways to share the data within AeriesWeb with external sources, the Ed-Fi initiative is a standard that seeks to unify the way data is shared between disparate systems. Rather than exporting csv files, using proprietary data extraction tools and applications, 3rd party sources to manage data transfers, etc. , the Ed-Fi standard provides a common translation methodology for handling data exchanges using APIs. Many 3rd party vendors, products, and data resources are adopting the Ed-Fi standard. AeriesWeb is currently well on its way to becoming Ed-Fi certified which will open a pathway for Aeries' LEAs to seamlessly communicate with many external resources in realtime.
More information about Ed-Fi can be found on their website at https://www.ed-fi.org/what-is-ed-fi/ .
