Alternatives to Articulate Online

If you've been using Articulate Online to provide customers with SCORM packages for years, it's tough to suddenly have to switch platforms. Fortunately, there are a few solutions to this problem.

First, you can switch to rise.com. This is also a product of Articulate, and also offers the ability to host, deliver and monitor SCORM packages. In addition, through this service it is also possible to create your own, new training courses using templates.

Unfortunately, Rise.com has one major drawback: the platform does not support LTI connections. More and more e-learning module providers are asking for a secure connection to work with SCORM packages, rather than having to take those packages in-house. You can't offer that with rise.com.

With LTI Provider Service, however, it is possible to offer a secure connection. That brings a lot of benefits to both you and your clients. You can read more about that in this blog. Not only do you get more possibilities in terms of managing and updating your modules, but you also offer a secure connection that is increasingly in demand.

Articulate and LTI Provider Service

If your organization currently offers all of its e-learning modules through Articulate Online, you may be wondering if switching to an LTI is so easy. Fortunately, we can be very brief about that: it takes almost no effort at all!

You just need to republish the e-learning modules as a SCORM package from within Articulate Storyline. This can be done as a SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004. With the LTI Provider Service you are immediately online and it is possible to make all modules available directly through the platform. Articulate itself has written an article about ending the service. There you can read more about what you need to do before the service goes offline.

LTI Provider Service kills two birds with one stone.

By using LTI Provider Service, stopping Articulate Online is no longer a problem. The platform helps you easily manage all your modules and creates a secure connection with your customers. For them, it is no longer necessary to keep the SCORM packages in-house and you have access to a fast and secure connection.
