Educuase: New Opportunities for Teaching and Learning: Extending Learning Management Systems Using Standards

1,744

Published on

The IMS Learning Tools Interoperability standard exists in Blackboard, Desire2Learn, Sakai, Moodle, and WebCT, which allows a learning tool to be written to integrate with these LMS systems. This presentation will give an overview of IMS LTI, demonstrate its use in an LMS, and provide developer resources for LTI.

Educuase: New Opportunities for Teaching and Learning: Extending Learning Management Systems Using Standards

  1. 1. New Opportunities for Teaching and Learning: Extending Learning Management Systems Using Standards Dr. Charles Severance Clinical Assistant Professor University of Michigan School of Information www.dr-chuck.com http://www.slideshare.net/csev Educause - Anaheim, CA - October 15, 2010
  2. 2. WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ — In an effort to support greater interoperability and technology choice for clients, Blackboard Inc. today announced new integrations that enable Blackboard Collaborate™ solutions to be used seamlessly with a wide range of commercial and open source course management systems. One of the new integrations supports Wimba Classroom™ and Wimba Voice™ for Desire2Learn, and is the first for Wimba that meets the IMS Global Learning Consortium’s standard for Basic Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI).

  6. 6. A Personal 13-Year Quest... I want to empower teachers and learners to have a wide range of tools and technologies to use in teaching and learning without waiting for their campus IT department or their LMS Vendor to "get around to it". In a sense I want an "App Store" for software to support teaching and learning.

  38. 38. Learning Tools Interoperability • Wimba and Microsoft were leading the Learning Tools Interoperability Working Group • The specification was well along - closely mirrored Wimba's cross-LMS integration approach • Wimba had hired a staff member who built a reference implementation of the draft specification • I was planning a Google Summer of Code Effort to implement the specification in Sakai (both code and PR) February 2008
  39. 39. Blackboard and Pearson • Blackboard approached us and offered us the IP for their upcoming "Proxy Tool" which was to be part of the Blackboard 9 release • It was more robust than the Wimba approach and lining up with the market leader (and Wimba's largest partner) seemed wise • Blackboard and Pearson took over the working group from Microsoft and Wimba • From a maturity perspective, it was "back to the drawing board" March 2008
  40. 40. Enter "Simple LTI" • I had a Google Summer of Code in-flight for Sakai and Moodle • So I invented a non-specification that was a bit of Wimba and a bit of Blackboard - I called it Simple LTI and promised it would be "temp" • Marc Alier (Moodle committer) made the "Dinosaur Video" March 2008 - July 2008 http://www.vimeo.com/7825070
  41. 41. July 2008
  42. 42. Educause 2008 • Microsoft put up funds to build an open-source reference implementation of IMS Common Cartridge and Simple LTI • www.mirlearn.com • IMS Common Cartridge + Simple LTI Demonstration at Educause • LMS: "Microsoft" and Angel • Content: Pearson and McGraw-Hill November 2008
  43. 43. November 2008
  44. 44. Basic LTI is "Almost Ready" • Learning Tools Interoperability had progressed nicely under the leadership of Blackboard and Pearson • We decided to build "Basic LTI" which has the scope of Simple LTI but perfectly aligned with LTI • IMS funds a reference implementation of Basic LTI in Java and PHP • Work on Sakai support for Basic LTI begins using the reference implementation - In production at UMich January 2009 December 2008
  45. 45. Summer Fun 2009 • Blackboard purchases Angel May 2009 • Steven Vickers, of Edinburgh builds open source Basic LTI Building Block for Blackboard and PowerLink forWebCT - with assistance and support from Blacboard • Work begins on a Moodle 1.9 module for Basic LTI June 2009
  46. 46. June 2009
  47. 47. Educause 2009 • We have working Basic LTI for Sakai, Blackboard, and WebCT and do a number of demos including one at the Blackboard booth. • Desire2Learn ships Basic LTI in their 8.4.2 release as a patch and issues a press release October 2009
  48. 48. October 2009
  49. 49. Closing In... • The LTI Working Group put the finishing touches on the Basic LTI specification and starts "Internal Draft Review" for all IMS Members • Penn State University begins work on Angel Nugget for Basic LTI • I visit Zurich and build a Basic LTI tool and contribute it to OLAT March 2010
  50. 50. March 2010
  51. 51. May 2010
  52. 52. Educause 2010 • Wimba Announces Conformance to Basic LTI • Demonstration of sending grades to Blackboard, Moodle, and Sakai from Icodeon and SoftChalk • Blackboard/McGraw-Hill integration using Basic LTI October 2010
  53. 53. What's Next? • Promote Basic LTI to Tool Writers • Produce Outcomes Specification • Get Moodle 2.1 shipped with Basic LTI • Encourage Blackboard to include Basic LTI in a release
  54. 54. Enagaging open source, creating standards, engaging propretary vendors, evangelizing ideas, doing demos, all are important activities... my long-term goal is to empower teachers and learners as to how they select and use technology to help themselves teach and learn...
