Electronic Data Exchange

Electronic Data Exchange (also known as EDX) is a means to exchange data from one computer system to another. In the education community Electronic Data Exchange aids colleges and universities to exchange student and other data electronically utilizing traditional EDI standards as well as newer XML standards.

The AACRAO Committee for Standardization of Postsecondary Education Electronic Data Exchange (SPEEDE) coordinates and leads the development of these national exchange standards by representing postsecondary education in the appropriate standards setting bodies. These include the P20W Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council (PESC) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) X12.

The SPEEDE Committee works closely with PESC on many of the key XML standards development projects. If you need more information on any of the SPEEDE Committee projects, please refer to the following link. PESC Workgroups
