LTI-compliance and external apps

LMS365 complies with the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard. This means you can integrate third party learning tools and courseware into your LMS365 courses as external apps.

In this article, we describe the LTI standard and which options LMS365 provides to include external apps into your training.

LTI and the use of external apps in LMS365

LTI is a standard for education technology, developed by 1EdTech Consortium, which enables learning tools and courseware from different vendors to be integrated into a learning platform.

NOTE   

LMS365 complies with LTI 1.0 and 1.1.

However, 1EdTech Consortium stopped support of these versions. Nevertheless, the content package should still function in LMS365 if the LTI package provider hasn't changed the package itself.
 

LMS365 enables you to integrate LTI-compliant learning tools and content into courses built in LMS365. In this way, learners can interact seamlessly with various LTI-compliant materials, such as audio and video, and interactive learning exercises provided by third parties and hosted outside of LMS365. Learners only need to log in to LMS365 - no need to log in to the connecting site. 

You can integrate LTI-compliant learning tools and courseware into LMS365 by adding external apps to your courses.

 

Examples of external apps that can be employed for your training

To see examples of LTI applications that you can employ in your LMS365 courses, please visit the TrustEd Apps Directory where you can find a list of products that have passed the 1EdTech Consortium interoperability official certification.

It is also possible to add Pluralsight content to a learning module as an external app.

 

NOTE   

  • In LMS365, each learner's attempt with an external app is stated as Completed regardless of whether it's actually completed. However, the learner may review the content of the LTI app by selecting the View external app button on the result page of the completed LTI in the LMS365 Player. This won't create a new attempt.
  • The number of attempts for an LTI app can't be identified.
