How do I create an LTI exercise template in Practice?

Practice accounts that use LTI integrations in a learning management system (LMS) can create Practice exercise templates. Practice LTI exercise templates enable authors and admins to create an exercise and add it to multiple courses within their LMS. 

When a learner in an LMS course clicks a Practice exercise template link, Practice automatically creates a Practice group for that learner's exercise. If a learner from a different LMS course clicks the same Practice exercise template link, a separate group is created in which the second user's exercise is filed. An LMS instructor does not need to create multiple Practice groups in order to deliver a single Practice exercise to multiple LMS courses.


  • The LTI exercise template creation feature must be activated by a Practice customer success manager in order to be visible to authors and admins.
  • Users that access Practice through an LTI integration will not receive email notifications from Practice.
