Nope. Thousands use the SCORM Cloud Trial plan every day to test their courses, and we want to continue to support the community with this free service. The Trial plan is also a great option if you are exploring the SCORM Cloud API and need a developer sandbox. We have made some changes to the free plan to keep up with the times.
Content storage has increased from 100MB to 5 GB because we know that courses are a lot larger today than they were in 2009. We have added a limit to the Trial plan to support up to 3 courses at any time. So if you have more than 3 courses to test, you will need to delete one before uploading and testing another. The 5 GB storage limit also applies, so depending on how large your courses are you may hit the storage limit before you hit the course limit. The Trial plan still includes 10 resettable registrations that you can use for testing purposes – whether it’s sharing your content with others for feedback or if you need to test out your SCORM Cloud API integration.
For our current customers on the Trial plan that have more than 3 courses in your content library once these changes go into effect on August 1st, fear not! We won’t ask you to delete courses to get under the 3 course cap, but you won’t be able to upload any new courses until you reduce your content library to comply with new limits. If you need more courses or storage, the Tester Plan is a good option to explore.
The first notable new plan you’ll see is something we’re calling the Tester Plan. Based on feedback from our customers, the Tester Plan includes unlimited storage for your content and no cap on the number of courses in your SCORM Cloud library. Customers on the Tester Plan can test their content with 10 resettable registrations per month while enjoying the benefit of unlimited content storage.
Based on usage data, we’ve made some adjustments to our larger plans and added another option.
- The Bigger Plan – You might notice that the Bigger plan now includes 4,000 registrations each month vs the 3,000 registrations included in the old plan. The Bigger Plan is optimal for customers that need 2,150-7,600 registrations each month.
- The Mega Plan – We realized that it was a big leap going from the Bigger Plan to the Even Bigger Plan, so we’re introducing the Mega Plan which includes 10,000 registrations each month. This should help reduce overage charges if you were previously on the Bigger Plan. If you run between 7,600 and 35,000 registrations per month, this plan is for you!
- The Ultra Plan – The plan formerly known as Even Biggerer. The grammarians here at Rustici have won out and we will officially be retiring the name. Going forward the Ultra plan is our largest monthly plan and includes up to 50,000 monthly registrations, where the Even Biggerer included 60,000 registrations. This is the right plan for you if you need 35,000+ registrations each month.
We made a handy comparison calculator to show you which plan you were on, and your ideal new plan in the price change. Need more help? Feel free to contact us.
Starting on November 1st, 2023, if you are not yet on a new SCORM Cloud plan, we will be migrating you to the corresponding new plan. Your new plan will go into effect on your next billing cycle after November 1st, 2023. Here’s an example to help:
Let’s say you’re on the Bigger plan and your bill cycle is the 15th of each month. On November 15, 2023, your SCORM Cloud bill will be for the new SCORM Cloud Bigger plan.
