Introducing Learning Tools Interoperability

The principal concept of LTI is to establish a standard way of integrating rich learning applications with platforms like learning management systems, portals, or other educational environments.

The idea behind developing LTI is to allow the seamless connection between web-based applications, content or tools to the platforms like management systems, portals or other educational environments.

External Apps add functionality to a Canvas course. For example, an instructor may want to include a study aid (flashcards, mini-quizzes, etc.) to help students better understand the concepts being taught. An instructor can locate an LTI compatible tool and align it within the context of the course providing additional learning paths for students. Apps can be added to Modules, Course Navigation, the Rich Content Editor, and Assignments.

This includes a variety of external tools that are Canvas compatible. The list will be consistently changing as updates are added.
