This document describes how an instructor can export Pressbooks in a format (Thin Common Cartridge) for import into Canvas.
You can export a non-interactive version of your Pressbook in PDF
format. However, if you're using Pressbooks with plugins like H5P and would like to embed your pressbook in a Canvas course, you'll have to first export it as a Thin Common Cartridge (TCC) 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 .
