Common Cartridge

Common Cartridge is a standard created by the by the IMS Global Learning Consortium that allows digital content and assessments to be bundled together in a package and then imported into a Learning Management System.

This is especially useful when using multiple LTI tools to assemble a course. For example, the course content could be created with CourseArc, quizzes with Quizlet, and a collaborative class notebook with OneNote Class Notebook.  The cartridge can also be designed to include pre-configured assessments and discussion boards.

This information is represented in a series of XML files in versions 1.0 through 1.2 of Common Cartridge, and a single XML file in version 1.3. The common cartridge package can then be imported into any LMS that supports the standard.
