Multiple Blackboard-associated tools will be undergoing a change in the coming months. They will be moving from an older "Building Block" model to a newer standards-based LTI or Learning Tools Interoperability plugin.
Learning Tools Interoperability® (LTI®) is one of the critical interoperability standards needed to integrate multiple campus systems so that institutions can create a coherent technology ecosystem (shared environments) with products from several different vendors.
Over the coming weeks and months, your SHSU Online Admin team will be working to update multiple Blackboard-connected tools to this new standard. Doing so will provide a more stable, cohesive set of tools to support your students’ learning experience.
Keeping Track of the Changes
When you visit our Changes to Blackboard Associated Tools web page, you will see a growing list of tools that will be making the shift, how they are changing and the expected date of the shift to the LTI format.
