Introduction to LTI Resource Search
What is LTI Resource Search?
The LTI Resource Search standard defines how learning tools and learning platforms search learning object repositories (LORs), and other catalogs of learning resources, for learning objects. The goal of the Resource Search standard is a common way for students and teachers to be able to search resource providers, such as learning object repositories, from single sources or aggregated from multiple sources, within a learning object consumer such as a learning management system or another educational platform.
LTI Resource Search includes the following key features:
A web services approach to searching for digital learning objects
