Browser Cookies and LTI

Cookie problems? We're on it. And you can get involved in the task force.

IMS is working with platform and tool suppliers and institutional members participating in the LTI project group to address reported issues related to LTI integration disruptions.

The issues are actively evolving as new web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) security policies are adopted and rolled out. These changes can impact integrations between platforms and tools which ultimately affect the student learning experience. 

IMS is developing best practice solutions to address these specific issues for current implementations of LTI and long-term solutions that avoid the use of cookies while maintaining high levels of security and integrity for LTI-enabled learning interactions. We have also been in communication with several of the browser companies to make them aware of the impact their security setting changes are having in the educational context and we will be reviewing the LTI related solutions with their architecture teams.
