    Hi!

     

    To date, the full potential of utilizing LTIs is limited by the ability to set them as a Course Home Page.

     

    I would like to propose: Adding LTI-Apps as an option in the "Choose Home Page" dialog.

    This discussion initially started here: LTI-App as Course Home Page? 

     

    Current State

    The following Screenshot displays the current state of the process to choose a Course Home Page.

    Proposal

    I suggest to extend the dialog above by adding the option to set an LTI App as the Course Home Page, as displayed below:

    By having the ability to choose an LTI App as the Course Home Page, LTIs can become a more substantial part of the Canvas environment for Learners, Instructors and others and would enable Canvas operators to have a higher magnitude of flexibility and individualization.

     

    Thanks Danny Wahl for referring me here.

     

    Kind regards,
