The Terms API provides information about a term, such as the courses in the term and the terms associated with an institution or a user.
A term is a division of academic time period or year (for example, semester, trimester, grades 2-3, etc.), so in LearningStudio a term has a start and end date. All courses are assigned to a term and usually derive their start and end dates from the term settings, but how terms are used (dates, number of courses, etc) is at the institution's discretion.
Terms can be created with the SIS APIs.
