Over the last few months, we've been working with Lumen Learning to support their mission of increased adoption of open educational resources. As part of this work, we needed a way to import course content stored in a learning management system into more flexible authoring environments. To support this, we built a Common Cartridge importer (Common Cartridge is supported by most systems) that lets us take a Common Cartridge export file and bring it into Candela, the authoring platform used by Lumen.
What you see here is an early version of the functionality; we'll be modifying and revising this as we run more imports. But the import process is pretty simple, so if you like living on the edge and want to free some of your courses from your institution's LMS, there's no time like the present.
At the risk of stating the obvious, all of this work runs on open source code. Feel free to check it out and spin up your own version.
