Sonia 2016 Q3 has received IMS Interoperability Conformance Certification.
With LTI certification, Sonia can integrate with any LTI certified Learning Management System platform including Blackboard, Canvas, Desire2Learn, Moodle, and Sakai.
It can also make use of various LTI Tools such as Turnitin, and get grades back from this tool into Sonia.
Users benefit from a seamless integrated experience in accessing assignments within the context of the course, and automatically logon to multiple systems through the standard LMS sign-on process.
LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability™) is a specification developed by IMS Global Learning Consortium.. The principal concept of LTI is to establish a standard way of integrating rich learning applications with platforms like learning management systems, portals, learning object repositories, or other educational environments. In LTI these learning applications are called Tools (delivered by Tool Providers) and the LMS, or platforms, are called Tool Consumers.
Sonia is one of a few products that supports both Providers and Consumers providing the best of both worlds for users.
When it comes to Field Education, there's almost nothing that Sonia can't do!Beth Lewis, Director of Field Education – Bryn Mawr College, USA
