Origin of DELETE
Latin deletus, past participle of delēre to wipe out, destroy
First Known Use: circa 1605

Ever hit “delete” only to later find the file hiding somewhere in a trash folder, refusing to let go? That’s really annoying, right? Especially when you intended for it to be gone—forever.

Many people have become used to having a trash folder or recycle bin that piles up all your garbage. Well, we don’t like garbage—it takes up space. We think our customers are just as smart (or smarter) than we are so we try to be particular and intentional about the way we make our product decisions.

So, we set up the “delete” button to do what its name promises. When you hit “delete” in SCORM Cloud, it really means delete. The course, invitation, or registration doesn’t go to a graveyard where it waits to be resurrected. Instead, it disappears, as if it never existed.

Folks like to use Cloud because it makes the business of SCORM a lot easier—we’ve done most of the heavy lifting for you! SCORM Cloud hosts services that allow you to test content, deliver courses, and house learning data in one straightforward platform.

We try to design all our products with our user’s experience in mind, but from time-to-time the things that may seem clear to us are a little cloudier to others. To help clear things up, we’re starting a new blog series dedicated to addressing some common SCORM Cloud questions. The “What Now?!” blogs will be basic, short, and will usually link to our support forum for those who want more meaty explanations.
Cloud What Now
To kick it off, I’ll be telling you a few things you should know about the “Delete” button. Stay tuned!

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.

We love it when Brandon Hall announces their Group Excellence Awards winners. Not only do we get to see how innovative our industry has become, but in a few cases, our software plays a role in the projects that have earned the coveted Gold Medal. We even had the honor of winning one ourselves a few years ago for SCORM Cloud.

mLearnCon 2013 is happening right now, and we thought this would be a good time to write about some related topics:

Mobile learning. M-learning. Native apps. Tablets. Smart phones. Offline e-learning. HTML 5.

These are all terms that we’ve been hearing a lot about in the e-learning community, but where do we really stand with all of these different things, especially when talking about trackable and standards-conformant learning?
