Content Packaging (CP) is self-contained learning content in a standardized e-learning format, e.g. an online module of your subject. For further information please see the section "CP Learning Content" in the chapter "Learning resources." When creating your learning content as CP you can use it not only within OpenOLAT but in other learning platforms that support this CP format as well.
CPs in OpenOLAT are usually embedded in a course. It is possible to use the same CP in several courses. For example, you can use an introductory module not only within a course for beginners but also as starting point in a more advanced course. If you have not created any courses yet you will get some guidance in the chapter "Creating courses" before creating your CP by means of the following instruction.
If you want to create large learning contents we recommend using eLML.
