Panopto (LTI Tool Provider Setup)
OpenLearning supports multiple technologies to provide interoperability with other systems, tools, and apps. In this article, we will be covering the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) integration with Panopto, a lecture capture and video management system used by Institutions to capture, record and share videos with their learners. The topics covered are:
- This integration is only available to education providers who have an Institution Plan subscription with OpenLearning
- A paid Panopto Enterprise plan
Log In to your Panopto site as an admin and navigate to Settings > Identity Providers.
Click the Add Provider button to create a new Integration.
Select BLTI from the drop-down menu.
Fill out the values as follows and save the integration.
