SCORM Engine Licensing

The SCORM Engine is an investment. It is an investment that saves you time today and, more importantly, saves you time down the road. Without the SCORM Engine, SCORM compatibility problems will be your constant companion.

We recognize that each of our customers needs are different and have designed the Engine to be customizable based on your technology needs, server requirements and other environmental factors. During the sales process, we’ll walk through this in detail to figure out exactly what you need and what you don’t need.

“How do you license the SCORM Engine?”

The SCORM Engine is licensed, in almost every case, under a term, source code license. This license is built to allow you to integrate the SCORM Engine in your application and then license that combined application to your clients. (There are several ways to integrate SCORM Engine with your product…see the Deployment Chart here.) We want you to sell your product as much as you do. And our license entitles you to do that.

Because these license agreements can become complex, we’ve annotated a version of our typical contract. Please be sure to get comfortable with the licensing language and ask us any questions you have. We want to work with you forever, and believe that having fair and balanced agreements furthers our ability to do that.

“How much does it cost?”

This will depend on a number of factors, such as:

  • Whether you license your LMS to others or use it only internally
  • The number of learners you have
  • The complexity of your platform and deployments
  • Whether you (or your customers) want to distribute/control content in outside LMSs

In general, there are two components to SCORM Engine pricing – the Initial Fee and the Annual License Fee – the exact amounts will depend on your specific needs.

“Is there a hosted Engine option?”

There are two ways you can have hosting taken care of for Engine. The first is to work with us using Managed Hosted Services. We’ll take care of hosting Engine for you. The second is to use our SCORM Cloud product. SCORM Cloud is a hosted product that offers a pay-as-you-go option for delivering SCORM content. Its open API allows it to be easily integrated into your system (although not as tightly as the SCORM Engine). If this is of interest to you, it is easy to sign up for a free trial.

…and here’s what our customers say…

I want to take a moment to thank you all at Rustici Software for your support and dedication to our effort. With your support we’ve surpassed customer expectations with flying colors, delivering a learning management system with much better performance metrics than even we were expecting. Freddie, Joe and T.J. helped us work through our complicated Global Sequencing Objective implementation and talk through our unique performance constraints. Rustici’s can-do attitude and pro-active engagement has made this engineering effort a delight — not a drudgery. I cannot say enough to thank your team.
