Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is a standard for embedding third party applications into Learning Management Systems (such as Blackboard, Moodle, canvas, etc.). LTI allows a seamless connection of web-based applications that are externally hosted or different tools to platforms that present them to users. Evident Point is in the process of developing an LTI support in order to securely connect ActiveTextbook to different educational platforms in a standard way without the need to develop custom integration for each platform.
The LTI support for ActiveTextbook will allow LMS users to:
1. Embed ActiveTextBook books into their courses for easy access,
2. Connect ATB quizzes with LTI outcome services to enhance student’s learning by allowing the instructor to see students’ progress within the LMS,
3. Read assignments (i.e. read X pages),
4. Receive comments notifications via LMS.
