We’re excited to head down to Atlanta in just a few weeks for ATD 2017. Not only is it in our backyard (well, sort of) but it’s a great chance to see so many of our clients and partners across the industry- all in one place! At last tally, more than 50 of the companies on the exhibit floor use our software in their products. We can’t wait to hit the expo hall and see so many of our clients in person. And check out the latest and greatest products everyone has to share.

Another fun fact about ICE this year? Tim Martin will be talking about Content as a Service. For those of you at the conference, check it out. It should be a great talk for anyone looking for options on how to distribute content in new and different ways. Tim’s also known for having some pretty entertaining slide decks.

So, if you’re planning on going to ATD this year, let us know. We’d love to make sure we find you to catch up. And if you don’t find us on the floor, you might find us here. Ryan Pfeiffer has already prepped us that we will need to visit Shake Shack at least once while we’re there.

“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.

Whew! Finally recovering from the holiday festivities and the small talk that seems to come along with it. Invariably when meeting new people, the stock question, “Where do you work?” comes up. We joke around here that this can be a loaded question. Some of us provide in-depth explanations of SCORM and Tin Can and that we create the software that handles these challenging, yet valuable standards. And others (me included) usually just keep it simple — “a software company in Cool Springs”. Either way, it’s not as easy to explain when talking to folks unfamiliar with the world of e-learning.
