The Microsoft Learn LTI app is now available.


What is Microsoft Learn?

Microsoft Learn is a free, online training platform that provides interactive learning resources for Microsoft products and cutting edge technologies. Our goal is to empower students and educators to learn about technology through fun, guided, hands-on content aimed at specific learning goals.

To bring Microsoft Learn's content into the classroom, we've made a Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) application that enables you to seamlessly blend self-paced learning content from the Microsoft Learn catalog with your curriculum and Learning Management System (LMS).


What is the Microsoft Learn LTI Application?

Educators and Institutions can leverage the LTI application to integrate Microsoft Learn Modules and Learning Paths into their curricula while providing hands-on experiences with Azure and other Microsoft technologies. Learners will be routed from their LMS to Microsoft Learn, where they can accrue experience points and achievements as well as track progress on learning activities.


The Microsoft Learn LTI Application adheres to v1.1 and v1.3 standards. For more specifics on the application itself, check out the Architecture Overview.


Key Features:

  • Single Sign-On (SSO) - users only have to sign into their institution once to access the Learn LTI application
  • LMS Pairing - instructors can create, edit, and publish Learn-based assignments for their courses and populate their insitution's LMS with them easily
  • LTI v1.1 and v1.3 Compliant - student data is not gathered and their data cannot be accessed; all user data is protected.


What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning is an approach to education that combines online educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional place-based classroom methods. Utilizing Microsoft Learn educators can blend in Microsoft Learn modules and learning paths into their existing curricula, to provide interactive hands on experience of Azure and Microsoft Services. All without the educators having to develop specific content for labs or assignments.

The Microsoft Learn LTI app is an Opensource app, that  will enable you to link to the Microsoft Learn catalog within your Learning Management System (LMS).

The LTI app leverages the Microsoft Learn Catalog API, enabling you to seamlessly embed modules  and learning paths metadata from the Microsoft Learn Catalog and display them within your LMS as custom activities for students to undertake on Learn.
