The main thing with LTI™ is the identity assertion.

Edu App Center - Basics - Introduction

LTI is a way for one system (the tool consumer, typically an LMS) to send a user to another system (the tool provider, some service that integrates with the LMS) in a trusted way. The most common reason for the trust assertion is to allow the user to be automatically signed in and directed to a specific course or module when the provider renders content. The consumer and provider have a predefined relationship via a consumer key and shared secret which are used to sign any messages passed between systems. Mix delivers LTI support and integration with major LMS providers. We’re pleased to announce the availability of Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) support for Office Mix and the addition of Microsoft to the IMS Global Learning Consortium as a Contributing Member.

The 2014 National Survey of Computing and Information Technology in US Higher Education Four decades into the “computer revolution in higher education,” new data from fall 2014 Campus Computing Survey reveal that although CIOs and senior campus IT officers proclaim IT user support to be one of their top institutional IT priorities, many campuses continue to struggle with providing adequate support services and IT training for students and faculty.

The new survey also documents a serious challenge of providing digital resources and services for disabled students, major concerns about IT security on the Cloud, and a big decline in the percentage of IT officers who view MOOCs as offering “a viable model for the effective delivery of online instruction.” The 2013 Campus Computing Survey. PRESS COVERAGE -- Inside Higher Education -- Chronicle of Higher Education -- Edsurge The 2013 National Survey of Computing and Information Technology Campus IT Officers Affirm the Instructional Integration of IT as Their Top Priority, Offer Mixed Reviews on IT Effectiveness and Outsourcing for Online Education New data from fall 2013 Campus Computing Survey reveal that CIOs and senior campus IT officers view instructional support and IT service issues as their top technology priorities over the next two-three years.

I have gotten a lot of very nice compliments in the last 24 hours about the first post in this two-part series. I do want to emphasize that a huge portion of the value in that post comes from the great survey work that Casey Green does. All I did was tease out a few implications and make a few new graphs (which, I admit, were very pretty). If you want to see analysis like this continue in future years, then support the Campus Computing Project. The Evolving LMS Market, Part I -e-Literate. As Casey Green said in my recent interview with him, the LMS space is a “market in transition.”

In 2005, the year that Blackboard acquired WebCT, the two platforms had a combined total of 75.6% U.S. higher education market share, and the next closest competitor had barely cracked 2% market share. Today, the situation is substantially different and changing rapidly. But the narratives around exactly what’s happening tend to be off. Typically, I hear the frame as being a contest between Blackboard and “open source.”

Has “open source” (by which we mean Moodle and Sakai, the two open source LMSs with significant market share in the United States) made inroads into the market? The LMS Divide – Social Presence in Online Learning. Social Presence and Community of Inquiry Model The Community of Inquiry model, developed by Garrison, D. R., Anderson, T., & Archer, W. (2000) presents the social dimension along with cognitive and teaching presence as essential for effective learning in the online community. I’ve experienced the robust and rich learning that takes place when all three do intersect, and the void when they don’t.

The social dimension in this framework, involves several components beyond the scope of this post, but globally include group collaboration where emotions and opinions are exchanged, group work that requires focused collaboration and builds participation and acceptance.
