Content designers want highly customized learning content, but that requires a developer to create custom HTML/CSS/JavaScript for each course. And this causes developers to spend too much time copying and pasting content and applying the HTML markup instead of focusing on developing the functionality. The solution is the Adapt authoring tool. This tool allows developers to create tools that content designers can use to deliver content.

In this hands-on session, you’ll learn how to get started using Adapt to create highly customizable eLearning. You’ll explore the basic functionality of this tool and find out how it can solve your eLearning development challenges. You’ll then find out how to create custom plugins that extend Adapt’s functionality and can be added by non-developers. The development skills you’ll learn in this session will help you focus on creating tools that support the content designer, instead of spending your time copying and pasting pages and pages of eLearning content that they provide.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About the unique capabilities of Adapt as an eLearning content platform
  • How to create highly customizable eLearning content using the Adapt authoring tool
  • How to create a custom plugin for Adapt to extend functionality
  • How to add your custom plugin to the Adapt authoring tool for use by non-developers

Novice to intermediate designers and developers with very basic command line knowledge and basic JavaScript/HTML/CSS knowledge.

Technology discussed in this session:
The Adapt framework and the Adapt authoring tool.

Participant technology requirements:
A laptop with Node.JS installed. The presenter will provide text editor files before the session.
