We originally introduced the world to SCORM Cloud in 2009. If you count it’s predecessor, TestTrack, it dates back even earlier. Since then, the website has remained largely untouched. We figured it was way overdue for a change. On March 24th, 2017, we rolled out an updated SCORM Cloud user interface. Initial reviews have been fantastic!
“Loving the new @SCORMCloud #UI – nice, clean #design!” #development #scorm
“The new dashboard looks amazing.”
“The new portal is fantastic. The new layout and design looks amazing. Thank you for the hard work and effort.”
While most features have remained the same, there are a few items that have shifted around to make them easier to use- the xAPI LRS and Invitations for example.
To see more about all of the changes, check out this handy guide to navigating the new Cloud UI.
“When we were looking out for partners to validate content created with Adobe Captivate, Rustici Software was the automatic choice. With the SCORM Cloud now integrated within Adobe Captivate 9, our users can now validate their eLearning content easily”

A lot goes into building an elearning course. From subject matter expertise to instructional design and more, creating quality content is hard. And it gets more complicated when you consider how your content will behave in the LMS that ultimately delivers it to your learners. Testing how content will behave in an LMS before you hand it off to your client can help identify unexpected behaviors and allows you to correct them before those issues are out in the wild. We see about 70,000 courses uploaded to SCORM Cloud each month so authors can make sure that what they created actually behaves as they expect in the SCORM player.
A few months ago, we sent out a survey to ask customers to tell us more about how they use SCORM Cloud and what other features they’d like to see. One request we heard from the survey and other conversations with Cloud customers is the ability to set an expiration date for an Invitation or a Dispatch. Well, the wait is over! We just updated SCORM Cloud so now you can set up expiration dates for any invites or dispatches.
It’s a lot of fun working with both hosted and locally installed platforms. Yes, technically the deployments vary a lot (and I’m thankful for our super talented developers who manage both worlds), but it gives us the chance to work with many types of companies and products.
Some folks gravitate towards the flexibility of SCORM Cloud as a hosted solution that scales with them as their business grows. Other folks require a more controlled, locally installed solution and need our Engine player for those very reasons.
Recently we’ve noticed another benefit of offering both deployment options— migrating from one deployment method to the other as business models change.
Case in point? Atomic Learning.
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.
