Stocks in this article: SOFO

MADISON, Wis., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted market leader for lecture capture, enterprise and event webcasting, today announced integration conformance certification for the IMS Basic Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard through its partnership with IMS Global Learning Consortium. This new interoperability enables content from the Mediasite webcasting and lecture capture platform to be seamlessly integrated with all popular higher education course management systems.



IMS LTI provides a single framework or standard way of integrating rich learning applications and content from systems like Mediasite with learning management systems, portals or other systems from which applications can be launched. Basic LTI is the initial release of LTI and is currently the most widely implemented version. It provides a simple method for instructors to provide access to Mediasite content anywhere within their college or university LMS or CMS, including Blackboard Learn, Desire2Learn, Instructure Canvas, Moodle and Sakai. Students can then easily access secure Mediasite content with a single sign-on. Products that are certified for LTI and other IMS standards are posted at imscert.org.



"We're excited for some of the new education standards like LTI to gain more adoption," said Brian Whitmer, co-founder and VP of Products at Instructure. "We think there's a great opportunity for interoperable, usable products like Mediasite to help improve the education ecosystem."



Mediasite's conformance with Basic LTI is part of Sonic Foundry's advanced integration services, which includes both custom development and adoption of industry standards to support clients seeking deeper integration between Mediasite and their enterprise or campus application platforms.



"IMS is very pleased with Sonic Foundry achieving LTI certification," said Dr. Rob Abel, Chief Executive Officer of IMS. "By incorporating LTI integration Sonic Foundry will enable a more seamless experience for their customers across a wide range of integration scenarios."
