Why Does WCLN Use LTI?
What is LTI?
LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) is an education technology specification developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium.
It allows an LMS (such as Moodle, Canvas, or D2L) to securely receive course content and tools from an external server (such as the WCLN media server).
Why does WCLN use LTI?
- Courses are more up-to-date and students benefit immediately with new games, projects, videos, etc...
- If one teacher reports an error, everybody benefits (as a consortium should).
- Although reporting errors takes time, the individual effort to keep courses current is reduced.
- Teacher ideas for improvement find their way to the Discussion Forum for conversation (Pro-D interactions).
Can I Personalize an LTI course?
With fixes within books looked after (once you report them in the Discussion Forum), you can focus on other personalization opportunities to connect with your students.
