Creating Classes

Class Management

Class creation is simple with our LMS LTI integration. Add coding assignments to your class in seconds. Effortlessly add students using either the LMS or invitation urls, so no need to perform messy CSV file uploads.


Time Savings for All

"The VM technology, integrated IDE and class monitoring tools are a killer combination. The time savings for students and faculty are huge."
Mateen RizkiChair of the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Wright State University
Easily Distribute Assignments

Coding Assignments

Imagine you have carefully configured a coding assignment on a Codio box with the right programming language, database and other components. You now want to distribute it to all 200 students. Just add the project to the class and immediately all your students will have their own individual clone to start coding. Whenever you need to access their Codio box to review their work, it's one click away.

Student Account Invitation

Adding Students

Adding students can be done in one of two ways. If using an LMS platform that integrates with LTI then it will automatically add students to the class. Otherwise, each class has its own unique invitation URL which can be posted anywhere. When students click on it, an account is created if they are a new user, and then they're added to the class.

See Class Progress


The teacher dashboard provides an instant snapshot of class progress in Codio’s LMS-integrated platform. All auto-graded assessments are shown and you can also manually grade. There are many levels of drill down, right down to seeing student results for individual assessments.

Code Similarity Checker

Plagiarism Detection

Codio LTI LMS integration incorporates a plagiarism detection capability that was specially developed for computing education. Codio's program ensures the best possible results for student programming assignments, as experiences with other engines have shown to be less than ideal. Detection is launched across all students with a single click. No need to painstakingly aggregate and upload code when using an LMS with LTI integration.

Learning Management Features

More Features

Codio offers many other Learning Management features with its LTI LMS integration. Provide feedback with in-line code comments. Trigger auto-grading right when a student completes a project. See time spent on assignments recorded and displayed in the teacher dashboard.

Pin an assignment to the student dashboard for ease of location. Specify assignment start and stop date and time for controlled assessments. Specify larger servers for assignments with higher memory requirements.


What does LTI stand for?

LTI stands for Learning Tools Interoperability, which is a standard developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. It is designed to enable different learning systems to communicate and work together seamlessly.

What is LTI integration?

LTI integration serves as a bridge, connecting educational applications and tools like Codio with LMS platforms. IMS Global Learning Consortium created the LTI standard, a framework that extends the capabilities of an LMS-integrated platform. The standout benefit of this LTI integration is its ability to provide learners with a smooth transition between different tools.

For example, a Canvas LMS LTI integration would allow instructors to use Codio’s coding assignments within the LMS without requiring students to log in separately. LTI instegration supports single sign-on for users and can pass information to the LMS.

This LTI integration with LMS platforms paves the way for a well-rounded learning journey for both learners and instructors.

What is LTI vs LMS?

An LTI and an LMS represents distinct elements in the landscape of online learning technologies. Each serves its own specific function. An LMS is a comprehensive platform where courses are not only created and distributed but also accessed by learners. Beyond that, it monitors student progress, maintains records, ensures smooth delivery of learning resources and fosters open communication between instructors and learners.

However, LMS platforms are limited in the format of materials in can deliver to learners. The primary role of LTI is to facilitate the integration of external educational resources and content, IDE environments or interactive lessons from third-party providers, into an LMS.

Students and teachers can use these external tools in the LMS without separate logins or leaving the LMS. Extending the capacity of platforms like Moodle, Blackboard and Canvas with LTI integration allows learners to access tools that enhance their learning.

Improve Your Digital Learning Ecosystem with Codio

LTI integrations with Codio’s platform improves the digital learning environment. It facilitates direct data transfers and interactions between LMS platforms and Codio so professors can manage grades, assessments, and assignments with ease.
