Hi. Long time, first time. Can someone give me a dumb’ed down’ed version of this so-called LTI ? Maybe a simple Use Case or a couple harder ones?
I am trying my hardest to get through: https://www.imsglobal.org/basic-overview-how-lti-works
I see Tool Consumer and Tool Provider, but : WHAT IS A TOOL? - is that even the correct question to ask?? “Instructors and students navigate into the learning applications by” So. It’s like an external application on a computer right? So we’re (hypothetically) opening MS Word (an external application) to use a .docx ? MMM… that doesn’t sound right.
So again I seek <INPUT> . Are LTIs like SCORM/AICC/xAPI but for other types of files? Are YOU utilizing LTI? What are they? How are they? What are they used form. What makes them great/suck??
I humbly await clarity. Thanks!
Ok - I am game - but there are things that describe it much better than I can.
What leverages LTI? LinkedIn Learning is one of those systems. As well as H5P.
The highlight reel is you will build a training material that will typically link elsewhere and set some parameters of how to handle scoring.
Oh and key benefits? Well letting people consume content where they are used to consuming it from…again the LinkedIn Learning example.
I have heard at times that LTI communications can get a bit dicey…but that is true with AICC today as well. Skinny SCOs are promising in this space…but high level? Once your LMS is listening to another system for a course completion? I think it is important to realize that server A at times will miss talking to server B (Docebo) typically because the human in the middle moves away from the ideal state of a stable internet connection….and communications…become dicey at best.
Best practice with these external communicator courses? Is to tell a person that the course is ideally played at a workstation with a modern browser as a requirement…
We are trying to get the following: user is in Docebo, and we display to them in a window inside Docebo the quiz hosted elsewhere.
Our issue : the LTI version that docebo offers is an outdated and flawed (security-wise) version. LTI 1.1 is not the standard any more, now it should be LTI 1. 3. So our very state-of-the-art exam platform (cirrus assessments) is not using LTI 1.1. - only 1. 3.
We are looking at finding another exam platform, but the ones that use LTI 1.1 are, well… not very state-of-the-art.
