Hi list

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   This time around I found those seem to have been  superseded by LTI 1.1  going to LTI 1.3.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.
