Nikolai ... It is both a wish list item and also what looks like a possible bug. While attempting to export-import from VUE to CmapTools, I saved as XML ("IMS Resource List - XML"). The help pdf indicates that saving in this format should enable other systems that understand IMS standards to re-use the concept maps. In my case, the saved file included nothing except: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <resourceList> <resourceListMetadata> <title/> </resourceListMetadata> </resourceList> ... i.e. had no content (whilst the concept map included about 50 nodes).
When attempting to open an xml file saved from CmapTools, VUE gave the error message "file ..." cannot be opened in this versionof VUE. This is the same with all three of the XML formats that can be exported from CmapTools.
That's a documentation bug, or at the very least an unnecessary ambiguity. The IMS Resource List provides a means for sharing resources that a map points to between compliant applications not sharing the map itself. I'm guessing your map did not contain any "resources" so you got an empty Resource List when you saved.
"The Resource List Interoperability (RLI) specification details how structured meta-data can be exchanged between systems that store and expose resources for the purpose of creating resource lists and those that gather and organize those Resource Lists for educational or training purposes. A typical example of such a resource list is a reading list."
