Adapt from Can Studios

Future-proof your elearning with Adapt from Can Studios.

Adapt from Can Studios makes building your own online content a breeze – just log in and start creating.

Adapt-based elearning uses mobile-friendly HTML5, is SCORM compliant and offers the best options for accessibility.

That’s why we use it ourselves.

Adapt learning is an open source project lead by some of the biggest names in the elearning industry – and Can Studios has been an official collaborator since 2017.

Together we’ve created an elearning technology that:

  • creates highly-interactive, responsive and accessible content
  • can be used by anyone
  • allows you to customise its functions via code plugins.

Why work with Can Studios

Several companies offer Adapt-based authoring tools. So – apart from our hosting, support and easy-to-use interface – why choose Adapt from Can Studios?

Committed to compatibility with the open source project. Your courses can be edited via other providers and Adapt-based tools in the future, if you wanted.

You keep control of your content. The button to export the editable source files is right there in our tool. Your content is yours to use as you choose, we won’t lock you in.

We’re continually creating new components and features. These are available first (and sometimes exclusively) in Adapt from us.

Can Studios is an official Adapt Learning project collaborator. We’re one of the handful of companies that work closely with the core project team. We have direct influence on the overall project and are active in the community.

“It was far more commercially viable for us to use Adapt from Can Studios: it’s let us deliver the project in about half the time that we would have been able to if we’d installed Adapt for ourselves.”
