What is LTI?
Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is an education technology coding standard that allows learning systems to communicate with external systems.
For example, your Learning Management System (LMS) or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), may use LTI to host content provided by external third-party systems without requiring a student to log in separately to the external systems.
ClickView is compliant with both v1.1 and v1.3 coding standards. This article will guide you through the specific setup of LTI v1.1 for use with the Moodle LMS.
