Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium that links content and resources to learning platforms.
Its primary purpose is to connect learning systems such as a learning management system (LMS) with external service tools in a standard way across learning systems. The standard describes the connecting system as an LTI Tool Consumer and the connected tool as an LTI Tool Provider.
LTI Consumer: This is the service that is consuming the tool. Typically this is a Learning Management System (LMS) or user portal. The LTI Consumer provides user information and context to the LTI Tool Provider. Additionally the LTI Consumer provides authentication vouching for the user to the LTI Tool Provider.
LTI aims to enable course content and learning technology to be delivered from content providers to students via the students' institutional LMS interface or portal. It makes possible courseware as a service, and many large educational content providers, including Pearson and McGraw Hill have adopted it. Popular LMS software such as ManageBac, D2L, Canvas, Blackboard, and Moodle employ LTI integration to supply student access to third-party software.
