Electude awarded certifications by IMS Global Learning Consortium

Electude’s LTI (Learning Technology Interoperability) has been awarded several certifications by IMS Global Learning Consortium, the world’s leading non-profit collaborative advancing edtech interoperability, innovation, and learning impact. These certifications require rigorous testing to comply with strict guidelines for security and functionality. The IMS TrustEd Apps seal certifies that Electude meets the expectations for protecting student data privacy.

Electude initiated the development of an LTI to best serve their growing customer base. In doing so, their LMS (Learning Management System) is able to integrate with Canvas, Blackboard, Brightspace, and Moodle. This integration gives teachers the full power of Electude’s LMS through their institution’s dedicated LMS. In a little over a year, over twenty percent of the customers in the United States have moved to this integration, and Electude is developing integrations in Peru, Canada, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, and Venezuela.

“The IMS Global certification meant a lot for us because we are early adopters of the new LTI 1.3 standard,” said David McNulty, Electude’s Senior Consultant – Customer Integration. “When we received our first certification, Electude was among only 30 LTI Advantage certified content providers. Being certified by IMS Global means that our customers can trust us to keep student’s data safe and provide quality, low maintenance service to teachers and students.”
