Our updated sites have finally arrived along with a suite of renamed products, a new logo, and a couple of small changes in where things live on our sites. First, SCORM.com and xAPI.com have been transitioned into purely technical resources. This means you won’t find a lot of commentary on our products there. Instead, you’ll find information and documentation on our products here on RusticiSoftware.com, along with information about who we are as a company and what our opinion is on the industry.
As I mentioned previously, our products have been expanding and improving for the better part of the last 15 years. In that time, SCORM Engine and SCORM Driver have been adopted by hundreds of vendors and organizations, emerging as the preeminent SCORM implementations for both learning platforms and content creation tools respectively. In fact, xAPI and cmi5, two specifications we were able to play a large role in creating, have both been a part of SCORM Engine since those specifications were finalized.
To keep ourselves honest, and make conversations with the community easier, we’ve decided to rename our products. This is a big deal, though it might feel like is a small thing. We’re changing the name of our integrated software products from SCORM to Rustici.
These products all do the same things they did yesterday; they provide world-class support for SCORM, AICC, xAPI, and cmi5. However, this rename will make sure our customers know Engine does so much more than just SCORM, it always has. It also opens the door for Rustici Engine, as well as our other products, to continue to explore new ways to help our customers put training in front of their learners. Just like we always have, but without the dated name as a distraction.
P.S. You may be asking, What about SCORM Cloud? Yes, SCORM Cloud also supports SCORM, AICC, xAPI and cmi5, but changing its name will take more time. So for now, you’ll still see us call it SCORM Cloud, but like the other products, it offers support for much more than just SCORM.
