LiveText Inc. Announces Official IMS Learning Tools Interoperability(TM) Certification for LTI 1.1

LiveText Inc. announced official IMS Learning Tools Interoperability(TM) certification for LTI 1.1. LiveText can be found in IMS Global's list of compliant tool providers as well as the LTI Certified catalog. Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI)(TM) is a specification developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium, whose principal concept is to establish a standard way of integrating remotely-hosted learning applications with platforms like learning management systems. For example, having now achieved LTI v1.0 and v1.1, LiveText provides its partner institutions with a standard method to establish a secure link that allows for Single-Sign On access to LiveText from within Blackboard, Moodle, D2L and Canvas, and other LMS platforms. The system also passes back an outcome to the LMS -- providing a more seamless teaching and learning experience for instructors and students. Users can log in once to their LMS through a Single-Sign On mechanism and access, complete and submit assignments in LiveText; instructors' grades are also automatically passed from LiveText back to the LMS grade book. This integration establishes a critical connection between work submitted in courses in the LMS and the learning outcomes assessed at the course and program levels in LiveText, as well as eliminates the need for instructors to enter grades more than once.

ExamSoft Worldwide, Inc. and LiveText Inc. Announce Partnership to Offer Groundbreaking Solution for Comprehensive Assessment

ExamSoft Worldwide, Inc. and LiveText Inc. announced a strategic partnership to offer higher education institutions the most comprehensive outcomes-based assessment and reporting solution to demonstrate the institutional effectiveness expected for accreditation. Demonstrating and reporting measurable and direct evidence of learning outcomes is a requirement by regional and national accreditation agencies. This new partnership enables institutions to let individual programs select from a wider variety of multiple direct measures to collect and report student learning to third parties, and more easily use data to improve their students' outcomes. Institutions are no longer limited to either a performance-based model or a testing-only approach. Institutions can now blend these assessment models and collect data by student, course, program and at the institutional level, for a more comprehensive picture of student learning.
