Remote classroom: Learning in the digital age with LMS integrations
As virtual classrooms and online learning have become part of daily life for many teachers and students, having the right technology to support this is critical. A big part of a great online learning experience is the smooth coordination of lessons. While Unify Office brings the capabilities of secure video lessons, group/class messaging and phone, there are other great tools that educators rely on to deliver high quality teaching. That’s why we are excited to share that the LTI integration for Unify Office by RingCentral is now globally available. It offers integrations for a range of widely used learning management applications such as Canvas and Blackboard.
Secure learning environment
Keeping data and interactions private and secure is our priority. That’s why Unify Office for LTI follows the LTI 1.3 standards - with the latest security practices for authentication (OAuth 2.0) and message exchange between Unify Office and your LMS, as recommended by IMS Global Consortium. So teachers and students can rest assured that their data and interactions are safe while using the integration.
