Try It For Free

Recently we began authoring content using Adapt with Can’s support and found it simple to pick up, generating our first draft units of work within a few hours of project kick-off.

As always, Can’s support has been excellent and the team has responded to our queries with helpful and prompt advice.

This authoring tool will give us the opportunity to work closely with stakeholders from around the world so they can produce their own mobile ready e-learning for the humanitarian sector.

– Kat Sandford,
Humanitarian Leadership Academy

Our search for a flexible training delivery platform that would enable on-line / off-line access modes and allow for limited bandwidth infrastructure with intermittent availability, led us to select the ADAPT Authoring Tool for developing engaging, responsive eLearning content, and Can Studios as our hosting and technology support partner.
