Weird Question: "Self-destruct" option after a certain time period?
Jan 09, 2018
Just had a strange question from my sales team and it's one that I don't know how to answer. I think it's a "NO" but I thought I'd pose it here and see what the community thought before I gave them a definitive answer.
We create and license elearning content to clients with yearly licenses. We have language in our SOWs about how at the end of the year license, if they don't renew, they're supposed to remove any content from their LMS/servers. Of course, we don't have any way of actually auditing this; it's more of an honor system. We've never had any incidents where we think we've been screwed over, though I'm sure there have been companies over the years who have abused the honor.
So Sales wants to know: Is there a way to put in a "self-destruct after ____ date" type of code or other mechanism that would prevent the SCORM content from being usable after the expiration of their license?
