The process of configuring LTI 1.3 includes 3 steps:
- Create an integration profile –
Create in Alma a new LTI integration profile with version = 1.3
- Configure your LMS –
Configure your LMS with some details taken from step #1
- Update your integration profile –
Update the integration profile in Alma with some details from step #2
Why should I use LTI 1.3 and not LTI 1.1?
LTI 1.3 includes more possibilities than LTI 1.1:
- Link selection – Create an LTI link for a specific citation/section from the LMS (instead of using the “Relink LTI link to here” option)
- Editor button – embed citation metadata in your LMS (for Canvas users)
- Assignments integration
If you are already using LTI 1.1 and interested in one of the above you should think of integrating LTI 1.3.
You can have both LTI 1.1 and LTI 1.3 configured in parallel in your LMS.
