Integrating ForClass with Learning Management Systems using LTI

ForClass can be integrated with Learning Management Systems (LMS) supporting the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) specification.

Leading LMS supporting LTI include: Canvas, Blackboard, Sakai, Desire2Learn, Moodle, Coursera and more.

The ForClass LTI integration is used to support the following use-cases:

  • Single Sign On – When launching ForClass from the LMS, participants are logged in directly to their ForClass account and don’t have to log in separately with their ForClass credentials.
  • Auto enrollment – Automatically adding students to a ForClass class, when they come in via links in the associated LMS course.
  • Grade pass-back – Pushing grades entered in ForClass to the LMS gradebook.

The following articles give detailed descriptions of the integration steps:

  1. Setting up ForClass on your LMS

  3. Creating activity links
  4. [Optional] Passing grades back to the LMS
