Experiences Using SakaiPlus with Canvas at University of Michigan

Wednesday, March 29 | 8:30AM–9:15AM ET | Room 553
Session Type: Industry Led
Delivery Format: Presentation or Panel Session

SakaiPlus is the first example of using Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) Advantage to plug an entire LMS into another LMS, allowing faculty a choice of LMSs on a campus without requiring a second enterprise LMS installation. We have been beta-testing SakaiPlus plugged into Canvas at the University of Michigan School of Information since fall 2022. This presentation will describe how this is done technically, show how it has been used in real courses, and share initial reactions and results of the testing. We will talk about how an institution with Canvas, Blackboard, or Desire2Learn could use SakaiPlus via LTI Advantage.
