re: Canvas LMS Maker Launches Open Education Apps Directory
Hi - Rob Abel - CEO of IMS Global Learning here. The IMS standards allow any supplier and any institution to develop a similar catalog. We don't expect Instructure's or any suppliers "catalog" to become the single most significant catalog. We do intend to enable peer to peer connection of catalogs and have a project started to enable that: http://www.imsglobal.org/press...

Note that since Instructure does not provide certification / conformance testing of LTI apps that there is no way something listed in their catalog can be verified as LTI plug and play conform ant (and thus multi-platform). The only authoritative source on that is the IMS catalog: http://developers.imsglobal.or...

Does the Instructure directory include products that are NOT verified as LTI compliant? My understanding was they were starting with your listing and enhancing it.
