cmi5 is a contemporary elearning specification intended to take advantage of the Experience API as a communications protocol and data model while providing definition for necessary components for system interoperability such as packaging, launch, credential handshake, and consistent information model


cmi5 introduces a new “manifest” like file named `cmi5.xml` that contains XML metadata that describes a Course Structure which is a series of containers (Blocks) and Assignable Units (AUs). This file is usually stored in a ZIP file, but can simply be an XML file, and is provided to cmi5 compatible launching systems (LMSs) for import. An AU is the launchable content in this type of package, and the content assets may be included inside of the package or hosted remotely.
