This document describes how an instructor can export Pressbooks in a format (Common Cartridge) for import into Canvas.
You can export a non-interactive version of your Pressbook in PDF
format. If you're using Pressbook plug-ins like H5P and want to embed it
in your Canvas course, you'll first export it as a
Common Cartridge (CC) file.
Before you export your Pressbook, consider how you want the content to appear in Canvas. Each Pressbooks chapter will import as a Canvas course module by default, and modules will not connect to the Canvas gradebook. You can create Canvas assignments and discussions by prefacing the name of a chapter with Discussion: or Assignment: .
Once you are done exporting the Thin Common Cartridge file, you will import it into your Canvas course by following the directions in Advanced Content Authoring and Reporting - Importing a Pressbooks Thin Common Cartridge file into your Canvas course .
