In the Spring of 2020, the Dayton Memorial Library at Regis University partnered with the university’s Instructional Design and Technology department to implement the LibGuides LTI tool in the Desire2Learn learning management system. This session will address the technical aspects and configuration details of the tool implementation, and will also focus on themes related to collaboration among various stakeholders, content mapping strategies, outreach to teaching faculty, and project scalability. Attendees from institutions who have implemented LTI tools in their learning management system will have opportunities to compare implementation methods and any associated challenges. Novices will have opportunities to view live results of the tool, develop a basic understanding of how the LibGuides LTI tool functions in the learning management system, and will be challenged to consider how LTI tools may improve the overall student experience at their institution.
