Vital Source Looks to Simplify e-Textbook Integration

May 14, 2012

Vital Source announced the company's conformance certification for IMS Global Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) v 1.1 with learning outcomes, which the company says will help more institutions, faculty and students take advantage of what the platform has to offer. The LTI platform will make textbooks easier to port into e-textbooks which Vital Source, a distributor of e-textbooks, sees as a significant plus and makes e-textbooks a much more appealing option for schools.

Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) provides a common way to plug applications into learning management software and learning platforms. Using LTI standards, more institutions can integrate the VitalSource platform into curriculums.
