Avalon release 3 introduced Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) capability. The purpose of setting Avalon up as an LTI tool in an LMS is to offer course-specific access and customized content verified by the LMS. All a user would need to do to access course items is to log into their LMS, click on an external tool link, and then they will be redirected to Avalon. As part of the redirect, Avalon gathers course and user information verified by Oauth. Using the course ID, Avalon customizes the landing page for the user to only show items listed for that course.


The parameters are similar to those entered for Sakai or Blackboard. Note that for Blackboard Ultra view to work the user needs to have an email.
