Asked a question last year

Collaborate Ultra LTI tool vs plug? We have been using the plugin this semester and it served our purpose. Once we began moving all classes online, though, we discovered that being able to track attendance and pull reports was necessary. Unfortunately, the plugin doesn't offer this feature. I just had the LTI tool enabled and am wondering if anyone offers both to their faculty? Should disable the plugin so they don't get confused.

Where am I?

I tested the LTI in our sandbox, but haven't added it to production yet. My humble opinion is prevent confusion as much and often as possible.

We originally had just the Plugin but added the LTI tool when I discovered the attendance tracking. We have some faculty who prefer the plugin and the way it is presented in the course so I left both available. I did make sure the reiterate the differences to everyone, though.
