Hello all.

I am fairly new to the IMS group. I was posed a very good question the other day and with some of the basic knowledge I have recieved about LTI. I figure I would ask and if you cannot help me with the what. Maybe you can point me in the right direction.

Question: In SIF there are various nodes that can pass certain information about students, faculty, courses. Can LTI pass certain demographic, staff/institution, and Schedule information. If so where can I find table information about that?

No - information of this type is typically synchronized with IMS Learning Information Services (LIS) - see table here ">http://www.imsglobal.org/specifications.html


IMS generally is complimentary to SIF. Think of IMS stack as kind of a "front-end" to SIF. IMS does not have any specs that do the type of user provisioning across many campus systems (cafeteria, transportation, library, etc) that SIF has and originated from. Nor does IMS focus on data passing from school districts to states, as SIF does.

IMS currently has a very active partnership with SIF in assessment, called the Assessment Interoperability Framework (AIF), in which IMS is focused on the front-end content-related interchange and SIF is focused on backend data. We are working to agree/converge on the pieces in between. See AIF press release here: http://www.imsglobal.org/pressreleases/pr120508a.html

We expect to extend this relationship with SIF to other functional areas . . .
