Well, not really, but it’s the closest thing that the e-learning industry has to offer in the area of “prestigious awards for doing awesome things”.
A while back, we introduced some new software development kits that work with mobile apps and SCORM Engine to allow you deliver and track SCORM content from your mobile app—even when it’s offline.
We’ve just taken it a step further, with a new SDK that lets users download and take SCORM courses from their desktop/laptop, even when a network connection isn’t available.
Whether you have a Windows or OSX app, our new SDK works with your App, LMS, and the SCORM Engine to download SCORM courses, play and track them (online or offline), and send the results back to the LMS once a network connection is available again.
There are many organizations that have multiple LMSs, and many of them have the same problem—they wish they had just one LMS, with all of their data in one place.
We love finding ways to use technology to make things better and easier, and we’ve done it again!
SCORM Cloud has a pretty nifty feature called Dispatch. It lets you remain in control of your content by doing some pretty clever behind-the-scenes things, and more control over your content is awesome!
Well, we’ve decided to add Dispatch to SCORM Engine (the Web Services version of it, at least.)
This is a big deal for content vendors.
Dispatch lets you manage all of your content in one place, but allows you more distribution. No more handing your valuable content packages off to clients—now you can manage them all from one place.
What other kinds of things does it let you do?
- Update your content in your Engine-powered LMS, and everybody that has your content will automatically receive the update.
- Play your content through any LMS, while keeping it on your own servers.
- Cut off access to your content for clients that aren’t paying their bills.
- Track how often clients are accessing your content.
- Delivering your content as a Dispatch means that it’s using the best SCORM player in the known universe.
- You can play SCORM 2004 courses and Tin Can API packages in a SCORM 1.2 LMS.
People have been doing these things for years in SCORM Cloud, except for one important part: playing content on any LMS while keeping it on their own servers. Using SCORM Cloud, the content is hosted on our servers. That’s no longer a limitation using SCORM Engine and Dispatch.
If you want to learn more about using Dispatch with SCORM Engine, get in touch. You know we love talking about this stuff.
There’s something that we like to do here at Rustici Software — make life easier by solving problems with software. This time around, it’s solving some Tin Can (xAPI) problems in SCORM Engine and SCORM Cloud.
SCORM Engine and SCORM Cloud have been updated to v. 2013.2. I won’t list all of the updates in this post, but I’ll point out a few of the big ones.
