How LTI Eases Adoption of Equitable Courseware

When: Tuesday, June 4 | 9:20 a.m.-10:00 a.m.
Where: Conference Center
Session Type: Interactive Presentation

Lumen Learning partnered with Unicon to deliver Lumen One, a new Higher Education courseware product. Lumen One is the first educational courseware designed to focus on equity and foster stronger connections between students and faculty. Lumen One provides a superior teaching and learning experience while being easy to use and intuitive, thanks to the seamless integration with the LMS.

In 2023, Lumen released the first Lumen One course, Introduction to Statistics. With Unicon's integration expertise, especially around 1EdTech's Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) standard, we were able to ensure that Lumen One could be delivered via the institution's Learning Management System (LMS) in a secure way while maximizing ease of use for instructors and administrators. These three tenets were made possible using LTI 1.3, including the Assignments & Grades Service, LTI Advantage Deep Linking, and LTI Dynamic Registration, respectively. In 2023, over 4,000 students used Lumen One at institutions such as Frostburg State University, Georgia State University, Montclair State University, South Texas College, and the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. 

As part of Lumen's mission to enable unprecedented learning for all students, we are engaged in research to understand better how and if Lumen One can eliminate race and income as predictors of success.

We Are More Than Our Grades: A Digital Recognition Lens

When: June 4, 2024 | 10:30 a.m.-11:10 a.m.
Session Type: Moderated Panel

What do we need from a technology infrastructure to power recognition of all learning in the K-12 space and remove grades as the only signal for opportunity? Alternative models of learning and assessment are not new concepts. Proficiency, competency, mastery and problem- based learning have all been around for a while. Why are they not mainstream, despite research showing that they are more equitable indicators of  what a learner knows and can do? Well for one they are difficult to scale and be sustainable and the weight of systemic oppression is real. 

In this session we will explore the bold vision of a new learning paradigm and the technology infrastructure that exists to enable the scale and sustainability of these models. Through the sharing of case studies across the US and Australia, the panel will invite participants to leverage interoperable data standards and imagine a digital recognition strategy to make all learning visible and portable for the learner and the wider learning community.
