Create responsive learning rapidly with Adapt’s free authoring tool

Melissa Milloway | November 11, 2016

In my last post I wrote about getting started with Adapt’s framework for e-learning. This time I am covering getting started on Adapt’s authoring tool for e-learning.

The e-learning tool makes building interactions much simpler, especially for those who do not wish to code.

Within an hour I had the tool up and running and made a mini demo. You can check out the demo at the bottom of the post.

While the install for the tool is a bit technical, the tool is very easy to use.

Resources for getting started: Adapt authoring tool page

Note: I don’t cover adding extensions in my video but I highly recommend selecting the Manage extensions link within the tool to add the SCORM extension (if you are tracking the learning) and others.

I also don’t cover downloading the course. In order to download the course select the Download button. The course will only be track-able by SCORM if you have the extension installed (it’s only one click in Manage extensions.) You will upload the zipped file to your LMS.

Here’s the final output of a few minutes in the tool

┬áHere’s how to install the Adapt Authoring Tool

Note: Make sure all of your installs are somewhere that you have admin rights to install/publish or else you can run into some issues.

Here’s my first time really playing around in the authoring tool

Here’s what I made (although it needs some styling still)
