Blackboard Collaborate™, an online collaboration platform built for education, now supports IMS LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) specifications, making the platform available to institutions using any learning management system (LMS) compliant with LTI industry standards, the company announced today.

This latest software update enables institutions using any LTI-compliant LMS to add web conferencing tools to their online courses. With the integration, instructors will be able to use Blackboard Collaborate to schedule and deliver live online classes, upload multimedia and presentation content, and store lecture recordings for students who missed class or for follow-up review, all from within the LMS and without having to log into more than one system.

The company also announced integration updates across the Blackboard Collaborate platform specific to the open-source Moodle LMS. The platform’s web conferencing, enterprise instant messaging and voice authoring capabilities are now compatible with Moodle 2.3 and are certified by Moodle Partners Moodlerooms and NetSpot.
