What is Common Cartridge Format and when should I use it?
Common Cartridge is an open import and export format created by theIMS Global Learning Consortiumdesigned to standardize content files created and utilized by learning management platforms, object repositories, content creators, publishers, and other systems.
Use the Common Cartridge export if:
You have created content (Assessments, Pages & Blocks, Assignments, Discussions, etc.) in our platform, but would like to easily replicate it in a different system
You or your school are moving to a different LMS and you want to take your classes with you
DO NOT use the Common Cartridge export to:
