Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is a standard set of specifications for allowing third party learning applications to integrate with educational platforms. Third-party LTI integration allows the application to connect to Canvas. Before submitting your request, view the list of LTIs that have either been approved or requested.


All new tool requests for Canvas LTIs must go through the LTI approval process. The approval process for each tool will include reviews for Functionality, Accessibility, Security, FERPA, Legal, Cost, as well as other factors.
