Integrations

Faculty and staff frequently rely on cloud based/external tools and application add-on software outside of D2L to support teaching and learning in their courses or organization sites. Those tools are usually developed by third-party vendors using the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard. They are considered “external” applications because they are are not part of the software included in our agreement with the LMS vendor, and are not owned by WCU. In many cases it is possible to integrate these tools into D2L, Zoom, O365 and/or Google to give students, faculty, and staff a more seamless experience by sharing data including credentials, content links, rosters, and grades.

Review Process

As a higher educational institution, WCU must comply with corresponding federal laws and regulations and be responsible for any third parties that create or manage education records on WCU’s behalf. The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) establishes requirements for protecting students’ education records; and The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) establishes requirements for the accessibility of WCU’s resources.

In order to protect our students, our faculty, and our institution, to ensure the integrity of the learning management system and compliance with federal regulations, WCU performs a standard review of all third party and cloud based tools prior to integration. The approval process includes a review of technical compatibility, accessibility, security, and the vendor's terms and conditions.

The time to complete an integration depends on the technical complexity of the task and vendor compliance. Once approved, it can then be integrated with D2L, Zoom, O365 and/or Google. The ideal lead time preferred is 14 weeks. All integrations are subject to review by the LMS Advisory Committee, Procurement/University Legal Counsel (due to review of terms and conditions), and approval by the CIO.

Make a Request

Be prepared to provide key details about the tool including the tool name, vendor, URL, cost and funding model, usage information, and what the tools does, how it works, and what the impact of the tool is on student engagement. Files may be uploaded to the request. Once submitted, each request will be reviewed. If additional information is required, you will be contacted with instructions.

In the section labeled "Describe IS&T's and/or Enterprise Application's responsibilities in support or integration of this software:" please indicate that you are requesting an integration with D2L, Zoom, O365, and/or Google.
