IMS Releases Dynamic Provisioning Specification as Public Draft

Dynamic provisioning is a feature which we have had in Sakai for nearly a year (we call it “LTI Advantage Auto Configuration”) but the actual specification documents are now available for others to look at.

The spec builds on OpenID Connect Registration:

This spec reduces the copying and pasting of LTI Advantage URLs and identifiers – which  have slightly different names in each tool and LMS – down to a single configuration URL and a single click.

The spec has been quietly available in Sakai (and Tsugi) for about a year, has been in BrightSpace and Moodle for some time as well. This is great news for Tool Developers – it is an easy spec to implement and greatly improves the usability of LTI Advantage.
