Science Interactive has launched LTI 1.3 Advantage from 1EdTech, making it even easier for instructors to engage students in their online science labs directly from their LMS.
ENGLEWOOD, CO—August 15, 2023–Science Interactive, a leader in supporting effective online science education, just announced its LTI 1.3 Advantage integrations, further advancing the underlying integration between its lab management platform and widely used Learning Management Systems (LMS), such as Blackboard, Canvas, Brightspace, Moodle, and more. This upgrade makes it even easier for the thousands of educators and students who use Science Interactive to access their online science course and lab materials through the LMS.
This updated, service-oriented architecture is designed specifically to adhere to 1EdTech’s latest and most rigorous LTI Advantage standards. It consists of services that extend the IMS Learning Tools Interoperability® 1.3 standard, which enable deeper integration with LMSs to facilitate the secure delivery of online programs. With new capabilities centered around automation and access, the integration streamlines course administration from start to finish.
By leveraging LTI 1.3 Advantage, Science Interactive redefines customer expectations for a fully integrated teaching and learning lab environment, featuring frictionless movement between any LTI-compliant LMS and Science Interactive’s lab management platform. Users are protected with enhanced security and student data privacy, while enjoying a more seamless experience that provides increased flexibility.
“This integration reinforces our commitment to continually improve our products and implement industry standards that provide best in class solutions for members of the Science Interactive community. One of our goals is to support instructors by making it easier for them to facilitate an engaging learning experience for online students—without having to spend time on unnecessary manual work.
