  • 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. 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. 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.

  • 37. IMS Learning Tools Interoperability Playing a Game of Chess
  • 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. 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. 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. July 2008
  • 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. November 2008
  • 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. 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. June 2009
  • 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. October 2009
  • 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. March 2010
  • 51. May 2010
  • 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. 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. 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...
