Remote Plugins use the LTI standard connection framework to integrate with third-party services or tool providers to add additional media-rich function to the learning management system.
D2L also supports Content-Item Message services. Content-Item message (CIM) is an LTI extension for exchanging content between tool providers and applications. CIM supports a broad range of content types such as static links, embedded images, or other media file types.
Use the Remote Plugins management tool in Brightspace to create and manage Remote Plugin integrations. Currently, the Remote Plugin Service supports these types of integrations:
- Course Builder
- Insert Stuff Framework (ISF)
D2L supports three types of CIM Remote Plugins:
- QuickLink (CIM)
- InsertStuff (CIM)
- Course Import (CIM)
