I have been researching how to integrate a desktop application created with LiveCode with a learning Management system (LMS) like Brightspace by D2L, Moodle, Canvas etc. Last time I looked at this SCORM was the standard with TinCan( aka xAPI) as a potential successor. This time around I found those seem to have been superseded by LTI 1.1 going to LTI 1.3.
In the documents I have found I see that one of the advantages of LTI 1.3 is that it can be used with desktop and mobile apps. LTI 1.1 only worked with web based applications.
" Mobile Ready—The model is independent of web browsers, a better solution for server-to-server, native desktop and mobile applications.”
I am looking for examples of people doing this but have not found any online.(I don’t want to spend time on idly ddl I looks like it would be possible to use it in an LiveCode application. It uses oAuth 2 for authentication and JSON for messages both of which are available on the the latest version of LiveCode.
First I just want to confirm it has been done for a desktop application in general so I know that is a viable approach for integrating an App into an LMS.
Second I wonder if people have done it using LiveCode.
