Integrating with a learning management system (LMS)

GitHub Classroom integrates with learning management systems (LMS) such as Brightspace, Canvas, Moodle, and others. GitHub Classroom supports:

GitHub Classroom works with learning management systems that use the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard. Using LTI keeps your information safe and secure. LTI is an industry-standard protocol and GitHub Classroom’s use of LTI is certified by the Instructional Management System Global Learning Consortium.

For the GitHub Classroom and LMS integration to work, we require that your LMS supports:

  • LTI version 1.0 and/or 1.1
  • LTI Names and Roles Provisioning 1.X

Note: Blackboard and Brightspace course rosters aren’t compatible with GitHub Classroom yet. We are working to support Blackboard and Brightspace in the near future!
