Retrieve information on a specific course. Course identifier is MD5 hash of course URL. It's not optimal, but I haven't found anything better. This means that as courses get moved around it will change.

In python you can generate it by running:

import hashlib
link_url = 'http://ocw.uci.edu/lectures/lecture.aspx?id=406'
hashlib.md5(link_url.encode('utf-8')).hexdigest()
GET /api/v1/courses/view/5fa03a5c8db7311b6c3e3235dc616ae0/
HTTP 200 OK
Content-Type: application/json
Vary: Accept
Allow: GET, HEAD, OPTIONS
