Distribute courses to LTI LMSs with Content Controller v2.1

Rustici Software

As of Content Controller v2.1 , you can also share your content as an IMS LTI tool provider. And we were mostly right about that, at least in the corporate and government spaces, where SCORM is ubiquitous. However, there is another eLearning ecosystem where SCORM and AICC are less popular and less well supported: K-12 and higher education. We listened to our customers, and added LTI as a method for sharing content in Content Controller v2.1.

Now that we’re providing you even more options for exporting content, we thought it was important to outline the differences between SCORM and LTI, so you can select the eLearning standard that is right for you. LTI tends to be used by higher education and academia, whereas SCORM is used primarily by government and corporations. It stands for Learning Tools Interoperability and it is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium.
