|NASHVILLE, TN – 15/05/2012 - As more institutions implement sophisticated online learning programs for faculty and students, Vital Source®, the leading provider of e-textbook solutions in education, today announced their conformance certification for IMS Global Learning Consortium’s Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) v1.1 with learning outcomes, a widely-used global technical standard for educational applications.
“The LTI standards from IMS create great opportunity,” said Kent Freeman, Chief Operating Officer, Vital Source Technologies, Inc. “Becoming LTI v1.1 certified will help more institutions, faculty, students and publishers take full advantage of all that the platform has to offer. We look forward to continuing our work with IMS and furthering the impact technology is having in education.”
LTI provides a common way to plug applications into learning management software and learning platforms. The LTI standard, and VitalSource’s achievement of LTI v1.1 certification, has simplified the way that learning management systems interact with the e-textbook platform. Using LTI standards, more institutions can easily integrate the VitalSource platform into their curriculums.
