Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI)

Canvas supports LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability®), an IMS standard that makes it possible to integrate third-party or vendor tools with your Canvas course, or enhance the course with other Web applications and Internet resources.  

Canvas App Center Whitelist

The Canvas App Center offers a set of external tools that integrate via LTI which have been reviewed and approved by UW-IT for use in your courses. The App Center makes it easy to add these vetted tools to your course. Learn more about the Canvas App Center.

Vendor LTI Integration Program

Many vendors and publishers provide online learning activities and tools that integrate with Canvas via LTI. If the vendor tool you would like to adopt is on the pre-approved Canvas App Center whitelist, they are already enrolled in the vendor integration program. This means the vendor has worked with UW-IT Academic Services and the UW-IT CISO to meet necessary data security and privacy standards. If you do not see a vendor on the pre-approved whitelist, you can encourage the vendor to enroll in the vendor LMS integration program. Learn more.
