SCORM Untethered is our disconnected player. We’ve built it as a set of components, and frankly, we’re not publicizing it a lot these days. It solves certain problems very well, but it has its limitations as well. (It only supports Windows clients and .NET server deployments). As of late, we’ve decided to leave Untethered as it is and see if our customers’ interests dictate changes.

Having said all that, we still do get calls regarding Untethered with some regularity. Often we do an online demo to show folks what it can do out of the box. Occasionally, though, folks prefer to do something on their own schedule, so I put together a little SCORM Untethered Demonstration Screencast. Please understand, we are not a media production company! This is low fidelity… you can even tell where someone knocked on the door, forcing me to stop and restart. And apparently I didn’t get the microphone back in exactly the same spot. Oh well.

I think this tells a pretty good story about what can be done with SCORM Untethered, though. If this is of interest to you, let us know.

Tim is the chief innovation and product officer with our parent company LTG, though he used to be CEO here at Rustici Software. If you’re looking for a plainspoken answer to a standards-based question, or to just play an inane game, Tim is your person.
