Vital Source Technologies recognises the benefits that the IMS Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) 2 specification can deliver to tool providers and has, therefore, agreed to sponsor this project in the interests of the whole community. The work will be undertaken in collaboration with Moodlerooms as an adaptation of the existing LTI (External tool) module which they manage on behalf of the Moodle community.
The main goal of this project is to implement LTI 2.0 functionality for Moodle which is capable of passing the IMS certification tests. It is not expected that the required changes will have any significant impact on the current LTI 1.1 functionality; indeed it is hoped that the work will also have some beneficial side-effects for the current LTI implementation.
