i-GVS has been designed to work on any connected device with a minimum screen size of 8” (20 cm) and benefits from a tablet or PC screen size, rather than a phone.

Supported web browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Safari
  • Android Browser

Accessing our cloud-based content via the delivery platform GVS PiLOT does not require:

  • Installation
  • Browser plug-ins (such as Flash Player)

Other VLEs and learning platforms may also integrate i-GVS content using Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) protocols.

VLE Access

Providers are now able to set up access to GVS PiLOT through their own VLE, thanks to our new feature – Seamless Connect. Utilising Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) protocol, we are able to offer a system that can support:

  • a unified platform for all resources and applications
  • a simplified login process

The only prerequisite is that the existing VLE being used must be LTI compatible, such as Moodle and Canvas. Connection is easy – simply contact our support team to request an LTI access key which will enable you to implement LTI access to GVS PiLOT within your VLE.
