With Teams replacing Class Notebook, there is a focus to use this in Education. If Teams worked with LTI, it would allow Learning Management Systems such as Moodle and Canvas to assign users to a Team through direct single sign on. This creates a more seamless experience for students and decreases the amount of admin needed to get them in.
Further to this, each group inside an LMS could be given a separate team or private channel in Teams to Collaborate. This would be massively beneficial for Education.

Our organisation uses Blackboard and Office365, we'd see an LTI integration between these two services as a real step change and an enabler. As it would greatly increase the adoption of Teams as part of Learning and Teaching.
Would a MS person be able provide an update of the 'under review' status.

Our institution is pursuing a "learning ecosystem," that involves CANVAS and Office 365. The capabilities in Teams MAY be an excellent CANVAS "Conference," and or "Collaboration" platform. Google G-Suite is not an option for our institution, so Teams MAY be a significant increase in current operations.
Bec Plumbe commented
Agree with previous comment that Canvas' collaboration tools are very unsatisfying compared to Teams. Our organisation uses both Canvas and Office365 and it would be great to get further integration.

Definite use case for integration with Brightspace!
Aubrey Wright commented
Has there been any progress on this idea?
This could be a real game changer
Jamie Mazzetti commented
I would love for this to happen also since I work in a private school who used the license for Office but does not use G Suite for Education

Yes, please integrate Teams into Canvas asap. Our school uses Teams.

Yes, please integrate Teams into Canvas asap
I'd love to see this. Our school is a heavy Teams user, and this would be a great integration with the LMS.
Would add my vote to an LTI integration that created teams on-demand based on the Course or Group that initiated. LTI provides the Course & Group ID, them members could be added automatically as they click the link to enter the teamsite.

This is critical if MS is to really be used in education settings. Com is currently being preferred due to LTI integration
Jason Hill commented
Please make this happen. Canvas needs a better collaboration tool.
Stephen Bruce commented
We use Moodle which lacks strong collaborative tools so it would be very useful to have an LTI integration for Moodle courses and which would also synchronise with student groups.
We would like to use Streams as lecture capture. having canvas LTI integration would be a great addition. We are already telling faculty to use teams but the lack of integration is causing confusion and slowing adoption.

Use external IMS learning packages through the LTI standard in MSTeams.
No LMS needed in MSTeams. Use MSTeams als a basic LMS.
A content-creation tool direct to be connected with MS Teams through LTI.
That should be the infrastructure. Thank You!
We would also find this useful, but we use a different LMS, so would like the option to set up with other vendors (via the typical LTI key and secret)
We use Canvas and are currently looking into integrating VC tools through LTI. As we complete our migration to O365 it would be good to integrate Teams Meetings through LTI.
Would like to see this in Canvas!
