ce. LTIc 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, Web. PA, Pebble. Pad, Campus Pack 4

What problem does LTI solve? • Answer: connecting a VLE (Succeed) to a 3 rd party application securely in a standard manner • Example of 3 rd party application: Turnitin is accessed via a ‘building block’. When in Web. CT we used a ‘Power. Link’ --- very different bits of technology. Thus Turnitin maintain several different code bases for different VLEs (Moodle, Desire 2 Learn) 5

What problem does LTI solve? • LTI links to 3 rd party application in same way from any VLE that supports LTI (Learn 9. 0, Web. CT, Moodle, …) • Simple to set up: – URL – Consumer key (unique identifier) – Secret (secures) • Word. Press Example – http: //jura. stir. ac. uk/? lti – learn. dev. stir. ac. uk – edufair 6

What problem does LTI solve? • Offers ability to Single Sign-On • Can provisions accounts • Can provisions blogs (in Word. Press) or other objects in other applications. Groups in Elgg. • LTI v 1. 1 has outcomes services that can transfer grades from 3 rd party system to Grade Centre 7

Another Problem (ce. LTIc II) • Imagine you had created a useful application that would be used on a wide-scale (many institutions) at varing levels of engagement but some quite small • LTI requires a unique consumer key (so you know which institution is connecting) and (ideally) a unique identifier for an individual with that institution. 9

Benefits • Benefits for learners and tutors: – seamless integration of VLE/LMS and external products – empowerment of tutors • Benefit for administrators/developers: – administrative efficiencies – single integration will support any VLE/LMS 10
