Blackbaud Adds LTI Compliance for onCampus
Blackbaud's onCampus learning management system (LMS) is now compliant with Learning Tools
Interoperability (LTI), providing schools with standardized information
sharing between onCampus and Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook, as well as other education technology tools.
is a standard developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. LTI
certification enables remote tools and content to be integrated into a
learning management system. "By opening our products to LTI
provider tools and streamlining workflows through our partnership with
Microsoft, we're making it easier for teachers, students and parents to
use the tools that supplement instruction, grading and reporting
tasks," said Travis Warren, president of Blackbaud's K-12 Private
Schools Group, in a news release.
Microsoft OneNote Class
Notebook lets teachers create lessons and assignments for students to
complete individually or collaboratively. The integration of onCampus
with OneNote Class Notebook through LTI lets teachers share information
between both tools. "Schools will discover that this new integration
will both enhance the learning experience for students and save
teachers time," said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Worldwide
Education for Microsoft. Blackbaud and Microsoft have also announced
plans to add single sign-on capabilities between the two systems.
In addition to OneNote Class Notebook, Blackbaud onCampus also integrates with Turnitin's formative feedback tool and SoftChalk's e-learning content authoring software.
