Knovation Announces IMS Global Certification of Digital Learning Solutions
netTrekker and icurio compliant with industry standard for interoperability
Cincinnati, OH – April 22, 2014 – Knovation, the leader in advanced personalized learning solutions, announces the IMS Global Certification of its learning engagement applications, netTrekker and icurio. Both Knovation services are compliant with Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI)™ v1.0, which enables the products to seamlessly integrate with existing classroom technologies.
“IMS is very pleased with Knovation achieving LTI certification as a tool provider,” said Dr. Rob Abel, chief executive officer at IMS. “By incorporating LTI integration, Knovation will enable a more seamless experience for their customers across a wide range of integration scenarios.”
LTI allows applications to securely connect to an educational platform through one standard method. With the integration of LTI v1.0, netTrekker and icurio subscribers can access content and tools through single sign-on access from district technology systems already in place, such as learning management systems or other learning platforms.
“Interoperability is an important factor for districts implementing digital conversions,” said Joe Greishop, president and managing officer at Knovation. “Our company is dedicated to reducing barriers to learning, and becoming LTI compliant is just one more way we can help districts implement integrated solutions that increase opportunities to make learning personal for every student.”
Through LTI, netTrekker’s digital learning resources can be easily incorporated into technology educators already use for lesson planning, classroom instruction and assessment. As a trusted solution for delivering more than 360,000 educator-curated, learning resources, netTrekker will continue to deliver the best content from the web, all in one place.
Like netTrekker, icurio integrates through LTI to create a solution that impacts teaching and learning more completely. icurio combines Knovation’s digital resource library with powerful education tools to provide districts with a cost-effective solution that supports both teachers and students in the transition to blended learning.
