LTI Communication with 3rd Party LMS Platforms

Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is one of the initiatives of the IMS Global Learning Consortium, an industry association that promotes interoperability between education technology software applications.

There are hundreds of prestigious schools and EdTech suppliers who are members of this association, including most LMS providers like Canvas, Blackboard and Moodle.

LTI is a standardized communication protocol for sharing information amongst EdTech software packages like an LMS system and a language teaching platform like SmartClass+.

Our LTI implementation has so far been tested with two different LMS systems:

  • Panda (Sakai)
  • Moodle

If you are using either of these LMS platforms, we can immediately work with your IT group to share information (e.g. user login, launching of SmartClass LIVE and HUB from within the LMS user interface).

If you are using a different LMS platform, we would like to work with you to test compatibility and fine-tune any issues that might arise.
