Context mapping LTI Roles and Org Units

In LTI, context is everything. Who you are, what your role is and where you are coming from can all impact the way a tool handles an LTI launch. The platform (Brightspace) can provide the context of both the user and the org unit for that particular launch. Brightspace enables administrators to create as many custom roles and types of Org Units as required. As a result, a Tool could receive an unlimited number of different types of "contexts".

In Brightspace, administrators can map their varying roles and Org Units to a universally accepted set of defined names, based on the IMS LTI 1.3 specification.
