Common Cartridge defines the content type. You can import any common cartridge into xpLor, whether it comes from your LMS or from another repository. LTI allows Bb to deliver content to your LMS without import and export. All content lives in xpLor permanently and all you add to your LMS is an LTI link. That link allows the content to be delivered in such a way that it appears as native content. It also allows for passing grades and completion information to the grade book. LTI also allows Bb to deliver content from other repositories just as if it were native in xpLor. These standards allow to make it easy for all of you to develop, share, and deliver open educational resources.
