Tracker.Net implements all mandatory and optional communication elements listed in the SCORM 1.2 and 2004 Runtime Environment Specification. Rather than messing with SCORM manifest files, you use Tracker.Net's Administrator interface to define lesson locations, organize lessons into courses, set passing scores, and more. You can even set lesson and course completion status via the Administrator in addition to having it set automatically via SCORM. Tracker.Net manages ToolBook HTML, Flash, Dreamweaver, Lectora, Captivate, ASP.NET, and any other content that can communicate via SCORM.

regularly published, but check out Brandon Hall Research's 2005 LMS prices at http://www.vbtrain.net/documents/jan5-05.htm. You'll notice that the

We are a small non-profit organization and for three years we have been using Tracker.Net by Platte Canyon Software http://www.trackernet.net. We researched dozens of vendors and Tracker.Net gives us the “biggest bang for the buck” by far. This is software you purchase and run off a server, but it wasn't hard to install and the support has always been friendly and fast. It has more flexible features than you could ever use. This was the least expensive program that we reviewed. Yes, its initial cost is probably more than for a hosted solution, but once you calculate the actual costs over a period of time we found that Tracker.Net paid for itself the first year. They have a free live webinar demonstration every week, and/or you can request an individual demonstration and/or download a free trial version.
Check with Jeff Rhodes at Platte Canyon. They have a nifty LMS that is fairly robust and is priced very competitively.
I found this LMS very easy to set up, both on a localhost machine as well as then moving the files to a Web Server. Once I got IIS up and running on a Windows 2000 machine, and installed a Developer's version of Microsoft SQL 2000, it was just a matter of hours to download, install, and configure Tracker.Net. After learning how to set up Organizations, Classes, Courses, and Students, I was a few hours away from developing some ToolBook content to test locally.
You'll be (not surprised but) happy to hear that your installation of Tracker.Net on my machine went as slick as the proverbial whistle.
Glad to hear that Tracker.Net is getting a good reception. I think it is a wonderful software.
I'm dead impressed with what I've seen so far with Tracker.Net. I think you could have a real winner here. I have spent several tens of hours trying to source alternatives to Tracker (just to see what's out there and how it compares). Without exception, the products on offer are overblown and overpriced. And the customer service is non-existent. None of the airlines I deal with would be prepared to pay the 10's of thousands per year that the likes of [the big LMS's] require and perhaps more importantly even big companies like this can't be bothered to get their heads around such complicated systems.
