  35. 35. ceLTIc Project• Project: – “Creating Environments for Learning using Tightly Integrated Components” – JISC funded (July 2010 – Dec 2011)• Aim: – integration of elearning applications with VLE/LMS using IMS Learning Tools Interoperability• Project partners: – The University of Edinburgh, University of Stirling, Queen Margaret University• Commercial partners: – IMS, Blackboard Inc, Learning Objects Inc and Pebble Learning Ltd• Case studies: – Elgg, WebPA, PebblePad, Campus Pack49
  36. 36. What is LTI?50
  37. 37. Developer• Use a single language of choice – some class libraries available (e.g. ceLTIc project has produced one for PHP)• “Write once, use many times”• Replaces Blackboard Building Blocks and PowerLinks, Moodle modules, …• List of conformant products – http://www.imsglobal.org/cc/statuschart.cfm51
  38. 38. VLEs Added in Elgg52
  39. 39. System Administrators• LTIv1.0 is core to all major VLEs• Configured with three items of data: – URL – key – secret• Select context and user data which is passed• No testing required of individual integrations (normal due diligence of provider/supplier still needed)53
  40. 40. Creating an LTI Link Learn 9.1 WebCT Moodle 254
  41. 41. Instructors/Teachers• Simply add tool to course• Possible to find new tool AM and be using it PM!• Click on link to access tool (single sign-on)• Data sent covers user, context and role (so tool can use this data)55
  42. 42. Example LTI Links Learn 9.1 Moodle 2 WebCT56
  43. 43. Basic LTI Extensions• Three extensions widely available although unofficial: – memberships – outcomes – setting57
  44. 44. Extensions - Memberships• Tool can request list of enrolments from VLE: – user ID – name – email – role (e.g. Instructor, Learner, etc.)• Example use cases: – Elgg: synchronise group members – WebPA: synchronise staff and students in module58

  49. 49. WebPA Grades Update63
  50. 50. Extensions - Setting• Tool can send, retrieve and delete data specific to the context (i.e., the launch link used)• Example use cases: – Elgg: date/time of last membership synchronisation – WebPA: date/time of last users synchronisation, date/time of last grades update and assessment used64
  51. 51. Elgg Setting Example65
  52. 52. Collaboration: Use Cases• Collaboration between users from: – different courses within the same VLE – different VLEs at the same institution – different VLEs at different institutions – or any combination thereof!• All users share the same space within the tool: – Elgg: group – WebPA: module66
  53. 53. Prototype Sharing Workflow• Generate a "sharing key" in primary context (e.g. group or module)• Send "sharing key" to instructor of course to collaborate with (secondary context)• Add link to tool in secondary context and include "sharing key" as a custom parameter• Use link to launch tool in normal way• All users join same (primary) context67
  54. 54. “Full” LTI• Differences from Basic LTI: – automated tool registration – placements in tool consumer – internationalisation – access to web services; e.g. • user information • course information • gradebook – notification of VLE events; e.g. • application state change • course archive/restore/copy68
