Authoring Content Fragments
Content Fragments are a content abstraction in AEM that allows text-based content to be authored and managed independently of the channels it supports.
The AEM Content Fragment functionality covered in these videos was first introduced in AEM 6.3 + FP 19008 and FP19614 .
AEM Content Fragments are text-based editorial content that may include some structured data elements associated but considered pure content without design or layout information. Content Fragments are typically created as channel-agnostic content, that is intended to be used and re-used across channels, which in turn wrap the content in a context-specific experience.
This video series covers the authoring life-cycle of Content Fragments in AEM. Details about delivering Content Fragments can be found here .

Defining Content Fragment Models
AEM Content Fragments Models, the data schemas of Content Fragments, must be enabled via AEM's Configuration Browser, which allows Content Fragment Models to be defined on a per configuration basis.
Creating Content Fragments
AEM configurations are applied to AEM Assets folder hierarchies to allow their Content Fragment Models to be created as Content Fragments. Content Fragments support a rich form-based authoring experience allowing content to be modeled as a collection of elements.
Content Fragments can have multiple variants, each variant addressing a different use-case (thought, not necessarily channel) for the content.
Example athlete biography for import: sandra-sprient-bio.txt
Downloading Content Fragments
AEM Content Fragments can be downloaded from AEM Author as a Zip file containing Variants, Elements, and Metadata.
