I've attempted to do this before for a side project (RateMyProfessor, but for textbooks!) and its incredibly hard to do accurately. One of the (many) issues that I ran into was that some schools still have all of their course data PDF format, in addition to the problems Cyranix listed above.

Much respect to any person or team that has to wade through this stuff.
