What is Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI)

Earlier every third-party tool developed and maintain a custom integration specific to a selected LMS, which was too time-consuming and difficult to maintain. Previously, the same application like the chat application was created differently for each individual LMS. To overcome these problems an LTI(Learning Tools Interoperability) tool is introduced. Now, you can only create one application and integrate the same with different LMS through LTI. LTI integration allows the seamless application to connect to any LMS which supports the LTI standard. Some of the third-party tools which support LTI are chat applications, video, online publisher content, plagiarism detection services, portfolio solutions, online tutoring services, and many more.

LTI(Learning Tools Interoperability) is a standard way of integrating third-party learning applications with platforms like LMS and other learning object repositories. With the help of LTI, you can easily integrate external tools or applications for example Google Hangout into your Learning Management System.



LTI provides the following benefits:

  • Helps in the integration of a range of instructional applications, learning tools, and content into the LMS.
  • Enables immediate use by college or students, returns the outcomes information and analytics across a large kind of learning tools, applications, and content to LMS.
  • A single sign-on online setting for all users.
  • Reduces the number of custom integrations needed for product developers as a result of each application interface within the same means.

Our qualified development team is expert in integrating LTI with any LMS as well as experts in developing applications that support LTI.
