New Opportunites to Connect Learning with LIS and LTI


Published on

Today's students and teachers are active in an ever-growing number of group-based learning and collaborative environments. From Facebook, Wordpress, Pearson MyLabs, Sakai, Moodle and more, there is a need to provide a reliable source of student, course and enrollment information to each of these various platforms. In addition, once the students and courses are provisioned into the group-based environments, the learning tools themselves need to be able to interact effectively in order to provide a seamless learning experience for both students as well as faculty. The IMS members have been working on 2 specifications to critical for enabling the interoperability of source learning information, as well as learning tools. After highlighting the current progress of both LTI and LIS, we will demonstrate a Sakai instance which can simultaneously get authoritative course and enrollment data via LIS (using Oracle's SAIP), and also connect seamlessly to external tools such as Wordpress via Basic LTI.
