Change in technology is a perennial process that will keep on updating for years to come. Let us talk about one such technical innovations, where the entire credit goes to IMS Global Learning Consortium. A company that believes in shaping up the Edtech industry with much fanfare, created the concept of Learning Tool Interoperability, gracefully acronymed as 'LTI'.
What exactly is an LTI?
LTI is a standard designed by IMS to expand the world of digital learning. Here we have the 'Tools' and the 'Tool consumers'. 'Tools' are all the third party features whereas the 'tool consumers' are the different LMS's on the online platter. LTI sees to it that there is no hindrance when it comes to connecting these two important dimensions of the technical world. LTI can be considered as a glorifying revolution that has managed to make the combo - education and technology worth the efforts. A bridge that connects educational resources and contents to the various learning platforms is what LTI is all about. This quality of integrating instills a sense of dynamism into the digital world of learning. Be it any LMS, it very well dilutes itself in providing services to its users. LTI standards imply that they will play the same set of games irrespective of the medium on which it is being displayed. Let us have a look at some of the benefits that LTI brings into the world of technology.
The benefits of using LTI

Learning management system is a one-stop destination for bringing in something more to the digital learning platform. When you have the power to integrate all possible forces without having to disturb the usual pattern, LTI is the best possible method. With LTI you can very well double up the power of your Learning Management System that promises to bring in an air of sufficiency. Hence, it can be concluded that LTI helps in bridging the gap that leads you to explore new horizons in the world of technology with much ease and tranquility.
