EdReady: Overview of LTI Single Sign-On (SSO) Integration

This article applies to EdReady LTI for SSO only.  For Developmental Math or Developmental English LTI installations, please see the article on How to Set Up LTI Courses.

IMPORTANT! This article is only an overview of the process; it is NOT complete documentation. The specific requirements for LTI-based SSO integration vary from one application to the next, and cannot be provided in a simple article. Your EdReady Administrator or LMS Administrator can login at NROCnetwork.org and submit a support ticket to arrange a conversation and obtain the appropriate documentation.

This article provides an overview of the process of setting up a simple LTI single sign-on (SSO) integration between EdReady and an LMS. The detailed steps will vary depending on the LMS you are using. Furthermore, there are other protocols (such as SAML) and other systems (such as an SIS) that may be used for EdReady integrations. Please submit a support ticket for additional information.

Understanding LTI Basics

LTI is a set of standards for secure communication that allows two unrelated systems to integrate and share information. In an LTI setup, there are two end-points: the "consumer" and the "provider". In this case, EdReady is the provider. The LMS is the consumer.

The EdReady Administrator must set up certain parameters in EdReady (the provider) so that the LMS (the consumer) can share that information back to EdReady for security verification.

Required Roles

LTI integration typically requires a cooperative effort between the LMS Administrator and the EdReady Administrator.

EdReady Administrator will perform some preliminary setup steps within EdReady. The LMS Administrator will set up the LTI tool in the LMS, following the LMS-specific documentation provided by NROC. The LMS Administrator and the EdReady Administrator will then coordinate testing and troubleshooting.

Further documentation of these steps, as well as the consumer key and secret required for an LTI integration, will be provided when you submit a technical support ticket.
