Alexander Street supports standard linking to content using Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI). With LTI your instructors can more easily embed links to content and users can access the content using their credentials on the learning management system.

With LTI there is no need to add proxy prefixes to the content page request and no need for the user to sign into the proxy. You can either use an LTI tool in the LMS or copy and paste an LTI launch URL from the item.

To see how the tool works in Canvas and Moodle, view the video below.

To retrieve the LTI launch URL from a video on, click the Share tab, choose Copy Permalink, and then Embed via Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI).

Permalink or LTI

If your institution does not have LTI options, you will need the assistance of your local IT, instructional design team, and/or librarians to set it up the first time.  For more information, click on the Support Center guide below and follow instructions for
