Simply put, Cartredges are electronic textbooks but with far more
multimedia/rich content in them. Content cartredges can be developed and
then be plugged into a CMS or a LMS. Until now, each LMS has had its own
proprietary cartredge format. This set of testing activities allow
providers to develop and attempt to plug-in CC's into LMS. I'm assuming
that Angel will be one of the first to try.

So what exactly is a cartridge, and how does it relate to actual
educational content (words, pictures, that kind of stuff)?
