Tsugi Achieves LTI Advantage Certification

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - March 12, 2019 - PRLog -- Tsugi (www.tsugicloud.org) is one of the first learning tools to achieve a brand-new certification for an interoperability standard called LTI Advantage, continuing the longtime leadership of open source learning projects in the Apereo Foundation (www.apereo.org) in standards and interoperability. Tsugi is an application library that allows rapid development of standards-compliant learning applications.

Tsugi certification, coupled with the recent Sakai certification, completes an open source end-to-end solution for both the Platform and Tool versions of the LTI Advantage specification. Open Source implementations allow proprietary vendors to examine source code and have an endpoint for regular interoperability testing.

Apereo projects like Tsugi and Sakai benefit the entire marketplace whether or not a school adopts the software that is produced as part of Apereo.   – Charles Severance, Founder Sakai and Tsugi Projects

The Tsugi project provides a free test server that allows LMS vendors like Sakai, Blackboard, Canvas and Desire2Learn to do regular LTI Advantage interoperability testing with a scalable production LTI Advantage compliant educational application store.
