AN OPEN LETTER FROM EDTECH LEADERS
Endorsing LTI Advantage as the Preferred Industry Standard for Learning Tool Integration
WHY IS LTI ADVANTAGE SO IMPORTANT?
LTI Advantage leverages open standards to achieve the following key benefits for IT, faculty, instructional designers, and students:
Reliable, productive, and innovative faculty experiences with technology
Trusted security of student data and results data passed between applications
Minimal technical barriers ensure that digital services are ready on day one of learning
Plug-and-play integration that significantly reduces the cost and time to connect digital tools and content
Deep integration of specific learning objects, content, and digital resources within the fabric of course content
Easy to consume learning analytics data supports student success
To ensure that all benefits are realized across all learning environments, IMS Global members have put in place a certification program and product directory available at imscert.org that is governed by a proven and trusted community process. For institutions to achieve plug-and-play integrations it is of paramount importance that edtech suppliers certify LTI Advantage and that institutions set requirements to purchase IMS certified products and expect their suppliers to be current with IMS standards.
See the supplier organizations that have committed to being among the first to implement and obtain IMS conformance certification for LTI Advantage.
