MIAMI (May 25, 2022) - Springshare is pleased to announce that the most recent version of the LibGuides CMS LTI tool is now fully certified by IMS Global, the non-profit collaborative dedicated to edtech interoperability, innovation, and learning impact.
“Achieving IMS Global official certification is another milestone for our LibGuides CMS LTI tool,” said Slaven Zivkovic, Springshare’s Founder & CEO. “This certification confirms that our platform adheres to the highest standards of interoperability, security, privacy, and ease-of-use.”
The LTI tool is a core feature of the LibGuides CMS platform, allowing libraries to seamlessly embed tailored, course-specific resources inside courseware pages. It is designed to provide a simple setup experience and effortless integration between research guides and a variety of learning management systems such as Blackboard, Brightspace, and Canvas.
“Once installed in the LMS, the LTI tool provides a seamless connection between two important platforms, streamlining user experience for both librarians and students,” said Sarah Pawlek, VP of Product at Springshare. “It simplifies workflow by allowing librarians to embed content to specific LMS courseware pages directly in LibGuides. Sharing resources at the point-of-need increases the use of library resources by making content easier for students to find and access.”
