September Release Notes: LTI Expansion and Bugfixes

Expansions to Learning Tools Interoperability in Schoology

Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is the standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium with the purpose of connecting learning systems such as Schoology with external service tools in a standard way across different systems. 

Schoology has improved the ways that LTI tools are integrated and accessed from within the platform, including the ability for instructors themselves to add and update LTI tools and expanded access to LTI materials (such as from the Rich Text Editor in Schoology Course Materials).

For more information, review the help article on LTI in Schoology.
