This event brings together developers, programmers, interface designers, project managers, and anyone game for an intensive collaboration on LTI projects. Come with your own LTI project, partner with a team, or work on a pre-selected project. A ‘crash and burn’ Canvas test/dev environment will be available, as well as a simple simulator. If you want to test against another LMS environment, please make prior arrangements with your home institution or company. As part of the hackathon start participants or teams are asked to make a two-minute pitch to the group about their project. Then let the hack begin! We will wrap up the two-day event with a showcase where projects can be demonstrated.
