On Sunday, July 12th, from 3 PM to 9 PM UTC (make sure to confirm your local time), cloud.scorm.com will be unavailable for an extended maintenance window. During this time, we will migrate all of the backend data storage for SCORM Cloud from Amazon’s SimpleDB service to a SQL based backend.
Over the last two years, SCORM Cloud has seen some incredible growth. Because of that, we had to go back to the drawing board to design an infrastructure that would continue to support the current rate of growth. We have plans to make SCORM Cloud bigger, faster, and stronger. Unfortunately, to pull it off, we’re going to have our first ever planned downtime.
What to expect during the maintenance window:
During the maintenance window, SCORM Cloud’s API and web interface will not be available. API calls will result in a 500 error, with the exception of registration launches. Registration launches via the API and Dispatch will redirect to a generic maintenance message. All web interface requests and invitation launches will redirect to a SCORM Cloud maintenance message.
How to prepare:
If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re looking forward to bringing you an even better SCORM Cloud!

We've just released a new version of SCORM Engine (2014.1)! This version includes a number of improvements that make this one of the most robust upgrades in the history of the SCORM Engine, so you definitely want to think about getting your application updated to use 2014.1. If you are ready to start talking upgrade, go ahead and contact us or just shoot us a message if you have any questions!
Here are some of the highlights:
1. It's SCORM and Tin Can conformant! The new Tin Can (xAPI) Conformance Test Suite from ADL includes hundreds of tests to assess LRS conformance. Rest assured, SCORM Engine 2014 passes them all.
