LTI Resource Search

LTI Resource Search v1.0 is available. This standard gives educators and students using a learning platform the seamless ability to search resource libraries for relevant resources. Find out more.

LTI Resource Search is a powerful way to take advantage of mutiple IMS standards. Searches can be targeted, refined, and filtered to result in meeting a user's exact need. LIT Resource Search interplays with the following specifications in the IMS Ecosystem: LTI, Common Cartridge, and CASE.
  • LTI Resource Search results can be delivered as a web link or LTI.
  • LTI Resource Search can search items within a Common Cartridge or Thin Common Cartridge.
  • LTI Resource Search can search for CASE URIs.
The LTI Resource Search team's next steps are to:
  • Get connected to suppliers using LTI Resource Search.
  • Confirm certifications for more suppliers.
  • Address small requests to establish a new version of the specification, LTI Resource Search 1.01. (We anticipate sharing this update in late June 2021.)

There are many ways to get involved:

  • Contributing Members may participate in the discussion forum.
  • This working group is on hiatus for Summer 2021. Updates regarding the future of these meetings will be posted here in late August 2021.
  • Monthly work groups meetings took place on the third Tuesday each month at 2 PM ET. See the Events Calendar for details to join the next call. The project group welcomes those interested in implementing LTI Resource Search to join the project group meetings for assistance with implementation.
