Wixie Adds LTI Integration

Tech4Learning has made it easier for schools and districts to integrate Wixie by adding single-sign on integrations with common learning management systems through support for the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) framework from the IMS Global Learning Consortium.

Wixie is a publishing and creativity platform used by students to create classroom curriculum products. Students can access Wixie online from school or home on a wide variety of devices. Wixie’s use of LTI makes it easier to manage and integrate with common learning management systems used in schools.

“Schools and districts can now create a single-sign on for Wixie in any LTI compatible tool, which includes popular systems such as Blackboard®, Desire2Learn®, Haiku®, and many others,” explains Dallas Jones, CTO of Tech4Learning.

“Our goal is to create tools that focus on classroom learning and the curriculum, not technology,” shares David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning. “When platforms are integrated with one another, students and staff build digital age skills as they explore and engage with curriculum.”

Once the connection has been made between systems, teachers can create links to Wixie in their courses and assignments. Students can log in to their LMS accounts and launch Wixie directly from the assignment.
