Authoring Modes

Unique to our hosted Adapt Authoring Tool is the ability to switch between two editing modes.

Lite mode is designed to make the Adapt Authoring Tool easy to use for new elearning authors. It provides all the tools needed to create a course in a straight forward visual editor. Lite mode is also responsive meaning you can create and edit courses on tablets and mobile phones.

Advanced mode is visually similar to the open source version of the Adapt Authoring, this provides more powerful tools but a less intuitive interface. However we have made several improvements to the tool for the benefit of authors.

You can change between modes at anytime using the main menu or the switch at the top of the screen.
