TechSmith Relay: Admin Ability to Track/View List of Videos Connected to LMS via LTI

Good afternoon TechSmith! 

We currently use the Basic LTI building block in Blackboard (the one created by OSCELOT) to establish our LTI connection with Techsmith Relay (we started using this particular LTI connection because it allowed our LTI video links to persist through course copy).  When we started doing this, we lost our ability to see which courses on the LMS were using the connection to Relay (this only seems to be available if you have the LTI set up through Admin-->Building Blocks-->LTI Providers area).

My suggestion for a new feature, if it would be something possible to add, would be to add an area to the TechSmith Relay admin panel that would allow us to generate a report that could show us which videos on the Relay system are currently connected to the LMS via an LTI connection.  One of the major reasons that this would be useful for us (especially as administrators) would be so that we could identify which videos are actively being used in our courses and we could take extra steps to make sure that those videos are checked for quality, accessibility, etc. Currently the Office of Disability services is asking me if I can identify for her which courses are utilizing video from Relay, and I have no easy way to provide that information.  If we could have a report built into the admin side of Relay (or if it would be possible to add it somehow to the LTI connection on the LMS side) - that would help out greatly! =)

Thanks for reaching out, Jennifer!

We're planning some updates to the admin section this fall and we'll definitely be improving the functionality tied to reporting. Being able to do audits and determine which content is linked and the status of its compliance would admins considerably. Thanks again for your thoughts and don't hesitate to reach out to us with anything else!
