LTI is an an acronym for: Learning Tools Interoperability. It is a cross industry standard for delivering applications and integrating third party tools into learning management systems. If you have ever used the EduApp center in Canvas to install an “app” you have installed an LTI.
Canvas supports a variety of third-party tools and LTIs. Listed below are just a few of the applications that have been integrated into the UNCP Canvas environment. If there is a need for an additional LTI or third-party tool a Service Request must be submitted and approved by the Academic Information Technology Committee (AITC). Faculty members can submit a request here to initiate a conversation about integrating an additional LTI.
