About Wolfram LTI

Wolfram LTI is a framework for connecting tools built and deployed in Wolfram Language to the MITx/edX platform using the LTI protocol. Below you will find guides for getting started and links to examples.

To utilize these tools you will want a Wolfram Cloud account. If you do not have one already, click here to create one. If you are affiliated with a university, see if your university has a site license to offer you more options on the Wolfram Cloud. MIT faculty and students can find MIT's Wolfram site license by searching for "wolfram" in Information Systems and Technology's (IST) software browser or by clicking here.

Image Gallery

The gallery tool allows students to submit images to a prompt along with a title and description and collects all of the images into one interactive gallery.

Work Plan Generator

The Work Plan Generator asks students questions regarding their motivation for taking a course and plan towards completing that course and generates a one page summary. Questions include their intended study habits, like what days of the week and time of day they intend to work on the course, their goals and reasons for taking the course, and what motivates to keep them going.
