This will add code, documentation, and a test harness for a new LTI Extension API that will allow external tools when properly petitioned to retrieve the Lessons hierarchy and insert LTI links into Lessons remotely.
This will be controlled by a number of properties and will be off by default.
This will be used to integrate xpLor into Sakai but it is an open and fully documented API that any external tool could make use of.
Much like the existing Roster and Settings services - this is not an IMS specification - it is a Sakai extension. There are efforts to put this same API into other LMS's as well.
Initially this will be done in a branch as the parts will move and evolve a bit at the beginning.
This will add a property:
If this is true (false is the default), the LOR APIs will be available. Of course the instructor/admin must still enable them on a site by site basis.
