Information Technology Services has implemented a Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) approval process for addition of all external tool integrations into Canvas. The approval process for each tool will include a review of Functionality, Accessibility, Security, Compliance with University policies, Cost and other factors. Be advised the review process could take several weeks.
The process to submit a request for a Canvas External Application (LTI) will use the online Software/Hardware Purchase Request
- A Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) is an external piece of software that can be plugged into the learning management system (Canvas) to extend its functionality
- Each LTI has a different license agreement, and different access to data from Canvas which involves a review process
- Submission deadline will be six weeks prior to start of semester to allow time for approvals
- Production installation is three times a year - targeted one week prior to start of semester (Fall, Spring, start of Summer)
- Please remember to submit LTI request well in advance of semester start date
To access the request form, go here: Software/Hardware Purchase Request Form
- If you are prompted to log in, enter your full FGCU email address and network password. This is the same login screen used to access Webmail/Office 365.
- Fill out the form completely and submit. It is not be possible to return and finish at a later time.
- Download and/or print the “Purchase Request Form” to facilitate information collection prior to completing the form.
When a LTI Request is submitted, ITS will:
- Review the request and may contact you for additional information, suggestions for alternatives, or issues with the request
- Approve/deny the request for Procurement processing.
For requests that do not fall into this category, or if you are uncertain, please submit your request as a ticket via firstname.lastname@example.org.
