Basic authoring package

The power of Adapt learning at your finger-tips – faster.

The Adapt from Can Studios Basic package is a fully-hosted and supported authoring tool that lets experienced Adapt users log in and start building HTML5 elearning quickly and easily.

So you can get on with the fun stuff, we’ll provide:

  • full initial setup – we install the Adapt authoring tool and framework
  • instant access – your server will boot within minutes
  • secure hosting and daily backups
  • regular updates and maintenance
  • ongoing technical support.

If you want to focus your time on creating mobile-friendly, SCORM-compliant and accessible courses – rather than maintaining your authoring tool – let us help.

Flexible and future-proof

Adapt from Can Studios is designed to give you the best of both worlds: the flexibility of open-source Adapt authoring combined with the ease of a supported, fully-hosted, cloud-based solution.

That’s why our packages give you:

  • Ability to use third-party Adapt plugins – add new functions with community- or custom-developed themes, interactions, menus and more.
  • Source export – your courses are yours to edit, even if you end your subscription.
  • Compatibility with the open-source tool – keeps your options open about how you edit your courseware in the longer term.
  • Our Adapt expertise on stand-by – if your team needs extra help, we can provide user training, editable themes or custom interactions – quickly.

Plus – because Can Studios is an official Adapt Learning project collaborator – you’ll be supported by people who work closely with the core project team.

“With Adapt from Can Studios I get the right balance between ease-of-use and versatility. The value of the service, for me, is that Can Studios hosts and supports my Adapt instance, while leaving it open-source compatible and fully-featured.”
