Remotely hosting content (similiar to dispatch files)

Sep 24, 2014

Hi all,

We've had a number of requests for clients to be able to remotely access our courses from their LMS, but without hosting the content.  I know that you can do this with ScormCloud's dispatch file feature. However, I'm looking for other means to accomplish this. At this time, we host our Articulate content on Moodle.  Any advice or pointers toward articles/info would be hugely appreciated!

Hello Phil,

Have you tried scormNEXT? it is a corporate solution to distribute your SCORM contents remotely to your client's LMS using SCORM connectors. You can have absolute control on which clients access which content and how long they can access. It is a more professional tool compared with SCORM cloud.

Take a look here:

Hi Preston,

Thank you for visiting scormNEXT website, I hope you liked!

Regarding your question, we have servers on Europe (Paris, France) and North America (Montreal, Canada).

When you upload your contents to scormNEXT, those contents are uploaded to servers on Europe and North America (for redundancy).

After that, when you create a customer for delivering contents remotely, you can decide from which datacenter should the contents be delivered. This way, you can deliver your contents from North America to all your clients located in America, but you can deliver contents from Europe in case you have a client located in Europe or near Europe.

If you have any other question, please feel free to ask me again.

Best regards,


Joseph Francis

In 2003, ADL published Cross-Domain Scripting Issue.

This document defines and presents several solutions to the cross-domain scripting security issue with a Sharable Content Object (SCO)’s ECMAScript (i.e. JavaScript) access to a Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) Application Program Interface (API) Instance. It is technical in nature and is meant for IT specialists and learning management system (LMS) vendors.

Several possible environments and scenarios were identified and discussed. Don't know how much of it would still be valid (or usable) ~18 years later. This and other documents can be found here:

Philip Hutchison posted a solution that worked for him a little over 10 years ago; you can find it on his Pipwerks site:
