Adapt Authoring Tool Releases

As collaborators on the Adapt Learning project we are committed to developing Adapt for you, and for the benefit of the community. Take a look below to see all of the releases our hosted offering.

Version 1.5

(October 2017)
Course Navigation

This month’s update provides two new plugins for authors relating to course navigation, we have tested and fixed these plugins with latest version of the Adapt Framework.

  • Quick Navigation allows you to add a customisable strip of navigation controls anywhere on the page.
  • The new list menu (exclusive to Can Studios) provides a condensed alternative to box menu.
  • We have also added a feature to the authoring tool allowing navigation locking to work in sub-menus as well as the top level menu.
  • Another new Can Studios exclusive (for now) is the ability to remove plugins from the authoring tool – very useful if you are trying out community add-ons.
  • We have update the authoring tool to use version 2.2.2 of the Framework.

Version 1.4

(September 2017)
Developer Tools

Over the last few weeks we nave put a lot of work into optimising the backup feature that released last month. It now performs better, and it going to be easier to find the backup you are looking for.

We also have installed the “Developer Tools” extension which has a number of useful functions for the busy author.¬†For guidance on adding this extension to your course click here.


Version 1.3

(August 2017)
Backup System.

We have introduced a true life saver – automated and manual project backups. Courses are automatically backed up every hour or every day depending on your plan (see our plans), and are kept for up to 7 days.

Additionally you can trigger a manual backup of any course at any time – these will remain until deleted by a user.

All backups can be restored directly from the tool at any point.


Version 1.2

(July 2017)
Live Preview Editor extension.

Installing our new extension into your course, allows you to easily edit all titles, body text and instructions within your course. You can also add new pages, articles, blocks and components. This release of the course-editing tool already allows authors to create multiple choice questions, text components and images.
