Last week at the Ireland and UK Moodlemoot 2012, I did a short presentation on IMS LTI.
I have blogged before about IMS LTI; what it is; how Moodle could use it; and how a custom Module enabled Moodle act as a LTI provider tool.

Before explaining LTI, What is IMS?
The IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS GLC) is a global, nonprofit, member organization that strives to enable the growth and impact of learning technology in the education and corporate learning sectors worldwide.
