The purpose of LTI is to connect learning systems with each other and to other service tools. aNewSpring is both LTI consumer and LTI provider.


LTI Provider

As LTI provider it is possible to run an aNewSpring course in another LMS.

To configure the connection, you need the following information:

- LTI link of the aNewSpring environment:

https://example.anewspring.com/lti/lti-v1p0/provide


- LTI key
- LTI secret
- Custom course parameter

Send us an email to support@anewspring.com to request a key and secret.

The value of the custom course parameter is the external ID of the course. The parameter can be sent in 3 ways:

  • As part of the URL
    https://example.anewspring.com/lti/lti-v1p0/provide/EXTERNALID
  • As a custom parameter
    URL:
    https://example.anewspring.com/lti/lti_v1p0/provide
    with custom parameter:
    course=EXTERNALID
  • As a parameter in the URL
    https://example.anewspring.com/lti/lti-v1p0/provide?custom_course=EXTERNALID

You can set the external ID at the course.

Click Settings and at the bottom of the page you will find Advanced settings where you can add a unique id.


LTI Consumer
