If we were a supermarket, we’d have just dropped balloons and streamers on our good friends over at Tandem Learning. But, since we’re 798 miles away from them, we just had cake and ice cream at the office instead.

Why the hoopla? Well Tandem is our 100th paying SCORM Cloud customer and we think that’s something worth celebrating.

We’re not a very metrics-oriented company. We believe that if we focus on serving our customers well, the numbers will take care of themselves.

With SCORM Cloud though, we took a bit of a gamble. We made a significant investment in an innovative product that, frankly, we weren’t sure if people would understand or want.

To ensure that we didn’t throw good money after bad, we set up a scoreboard to monitor adoption. At every turn, the scoreboard has been ahead of our projections and as it adds its third digit, we’re sure we’ve hit on something good.

It’s been amazing to watch the variety of ways people are using SCORM Cloud to distribute learning.

Tandem Learning is using SCORM Cloud to deliver “The Change Game“. “The Change Game is an avatar based serious game that will help increase a player’s agility in a changing environment by strengthening their personal resilience” and, in my opinion, is a stellar example of what online training should be like.

Tandem needs to deliver “The Change Game” to small groups that don’t always need the overhead of an LMS. They were already using the SCORM Cloud Sandbox as a testing platform and simply started sending out invitations to use it as a delivery platform.

So, thank you Tandem and the rest of our SCORM Cloud customers. We’re excited to see what comes next for the Cloud.
