An Introduction to LTI

The LTI standard was first released in 2010 replacing the outdated Shareable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) standard. Released in 2000, SCORM required the tool or application to be saved in a static downloadable package (.zip file) that couldn’t be updated dynamically.

Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is a standardized framework for enabling learning platforms (tool consumers such as Blackboard) to integrate with third-party learning applications (tool providers such as CourseArc). Published by the IMS Global Learning Consortium, LTI eliminates the need for custom integration between LTI-compliant tool consumers and tool providers allowing organizations to choose from a variety of best-of-breed tools that can be deployed quickly and easily. LTI enables third-party tools to integrate seamlessly into an LMS without students even realizing that they’re interacting with another tool.
