I have no idea what this about. Is it all forms of data or just school research data? The ScottyLabs data looks like it is only campus specific data, like the times a class is scheduled? The guide book is little ambiguous.

I attend (and work for) Rutgers, which is one of the data sources listed there. Our data stream is api.rutgers.edu which offers campus bus arrival time predictions (via NextBus), upcoming event info, dining hall menus, sports scores, and info on recreation facilities.

I had to chuckle when I saw this. Their front page has a picture of the Franklin S. Harris Fine Arts Center on the campus of Brigham Young University http://home.byu.edu/home/

I guess it depends on what the data is. I've got a couple ideas on what I could use it for but that is just off of assumptions of data they use. Maybe have some more info on the homepage when you get it?
