In many cases, schools and districts will simply use the CompuScholar online Learning Management System (LMS). But if your district has its own internal LMS, then you may be able to self-host our courses!
- Common Cartridge (CC) 1.2
- Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) 1.1
- Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) 1.2
How Does it Work?
Each of our courses is packaged in a CC / LTI / QTI format - effectively a ZIP file with many internal XML files defining the content. You can import this cartridge file into your system, and then your teachers and students can access the course natively from within your own LMS!
Your LMS will internally manage course registration with your existing student and teacher accounts, track grades and handle other course logistics. But the actual course content (lessons, videos, files) is pulled dynamically through LTI from our cloud. All quizzes and tests are packaged within the cartridge in QTI format, so assessments are self-contained entirely within your LMS; no student data needs to be exchanged with our system.

Supported LMS PLatforms
If your school is using an IMS Global-compliant LMS like Blackboard, Canvas, Brightspace, Schoology, or Safari Montage, then integration should be very simple! Please contact us to discuss your platform capabilities. The demonstration videos below show how easily a course cartridge can be integrated into some example systems.
