LTI 2.0 Support coming to Moodle?

LTI 2.0 Support coming to Moodle? | mOOdle_ation[s] | Scoop.it

Moodle’s External Link resource is one of the most flexible in the educator’s/course creator’s tool belt. To date we’ve been using IMS Global’s LTI 1.1 standard to provide access from Moodle to an assortment of 3rd party tools(or even other Moodle sites). The value is an uncomplicated SSO system that provides the minimum amount of data required to allow students to work on a 3rd party system to interact, socialize, or even take a test. In other LMSes it’s called bLTI (b as in “basic”).

 

Vital Source Technologies (perhaps known to you through their ebook service or recent acquisition of CourseSmart) is proposaing to upgrade Moodle’s LTI capabilities to the 2.0 specification available through IMS Global: http://www.imsglobal.org/blog/?p=184.

Review of the Bigbluebutton LTI integration with Moodle

As you will see it works as you would expect:

1. a teacher creates the activity with the LTI connection details

2. they click on the link and it launches the BBB framed by the Moodle site

3. they are automatically logged in and granted presenter rights

4. the student can click on the link course page and be logged in and able to interact with the teacher.

 

It is great to see another tool become LTI enabled, which will make things much easier for teachers to leverage the diversity of learning tools in Moodle without having to install extra custom integration. I also see that the BBB LTI integration is IMS certified which means that it has been tested to meet the standard which is good news too.
