Common Cartridge Benefits

  • Greater choice of content: Enables collections of learning resources of various types and sources.
  • Reduces vendor/platform lock-in: Establishes course cartridge native formats endorsed by educational publishers, and supports a wide variety of established content formats, eliminating platform lock-in.
  • Greater assessment options: Explicitly supports the most widely used standards for exchanging assessment items.
  • Increases flexibility, sharing and reuse: Fits within the educational context of enabling instructors to assemble lesson plans of various resources and publish those as reusable and changeable packages that are easy to create, share, and improve.

Factors for Success

  • Based on 10 years experience in learning content interoperability.
  • Based on the most widely used interoperability standards for learning content and assessment.
  • Supported by the leading educational publishers, assessment organizations, and learning platform providers and leading open source/open content initiatives.
  • Easy to implement and flexible.
  • Enables mapping to things we use and understand: textbooks, lesson plans, courses.
  • Supports the overwhelmingly predominant educational and training paradigm: self-directed but guided learning with an instructor in the loop, coordinated with assessment and online communal learning (discussions).
  • Component standards are in a very healthy state of improvement and evolution to support future needs.
