IMS Common Cartridge Specification

Various authors, IMS Global, Jul 31, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Just announced: "The documents and schemas comprising the Common Cartridge v1.0 specification have been released for public review and comment for a period of 60 days, closing on 2008 September 22." The most interesting aspect of the specification, to me, is the inclusion of an 'authorization model' governing access to digital contents by users in an LMS. The specification also provides "an integrated approach to exchanging content exploiting: a consistent model for packaging content; metadata (based on simple Dublin Core) [and] Assessment (harnessing a commonly used set of question types)." Some weirdness on the IMS site: you are advised that you cannot print the HTML pages; you have to go register with IMS to get a PDF.
