Good news for everyone using Pressbooks in the education sphere: Over the last couple of months, we have been working on developing our own LTI Provider plugin, which is now almost release-ready!
The LTI Provider plugin will allow institutions to embed Pressbooks content in their Learning Management Systems (LMSs) using the LTI standard.
In terms of features, the LTI Provider plugin will provide the same set of functionalities as Lumen Learning’s Candela plugin.
Basic features include:
- Creation of manual LTI configuration
- Automatic configuration via LMS
- Common Cartridge exports (versions 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3)
- Deep Links
The plugin has been available for some time on our GitHub repository, and we have had valuable input from the Pressbooks open source community.
We encourage you to give the latest version a test and send us your feedback via GitHub!
