Released in 2006, this version of SCORM® benefited from the lessons learned of the previous versions through support of the ADL community. SCORM® 2004 3rd Edition addresses the issues that were discovered in SCORM® 2004 2nd Edition and provided a stable version for content developers and distance learning product producers to confidently use.
However, ADL Initiative encourages content developers and those who produce distributed learning products to conform to SCORM® 2004 4th Edition, the most recent version of the SCORM® specification.
ADL Initiative continues to provide SCORM® 2004 3rd Edition archives in order to provide historical documentation and resources in support of learning environments and systems that have not migrated to the 4th edition.
