Adapt Authoring Tool

Tailoring your suite of courses

Using the free Adapt software you can tailor any of our off the shelf Compliance and Health and Safety courses. This means that your courses can be made to fit even the most precise requirements and can also be aligned with your brand.

Whether it is minor tweaks or major customisation, the user-friendly features of Adapt allow you to edit and tailor existing content or create new content within a course quickly and easily with a minimum of resource.


Creating your own courses

The Adapt authoring tool allows even the least technical person to create effective and compliant eLearning courses that can be viewed on any device (PCs, smartphones, tablets and laptops).

Adapt authoring gives you complete control over the content you create. What’s more, the platform is Cloud based, meaning there’s no software to install on your machine and you can get to work right away.

Courses can be created quickly and easily, adding content and questions from a bank of customisable components. Assets (including video!) can be selected from the asset library or users can upload their own.

The look and feel of your course can easily be changed by selecting from the wide range of themes available, and your course can then be downloaded and used in your chosen LMS.

What is the Adapt authoring tool?

The Adapt authoring tool is free, easy to use software that creates beautiful, fully responsive, multi-device, HTML5 eLearning content.

The result of an open source collaboration, the Adapt authoring tool has won 2 Platinum and 1 Gold awards for Best eLearning Design Technology from LearnX. Being an open source project, Adapt has an active community, and the Adapt community site can be viewed here.


Here at DeltaNet International we have been a collaborator on the Adapt project almost from the outset – and still contribute significant resource. We are active members of the open source steering group, so help to shape how the project evolves. We have retained our involvement to ensure that our clients have the best possible solution available to them when amending courses.

We use the Adapt authoring tool to build Compliance and Health and Safety eLearning courses.

It’s simple to translate a course through Adapt. The “Translate Course” button does the trick almost instantly, converting all text into the language of your choice. Anything a screen reader can detect is translated, making your translated courses accessible to as many people as possible.

Adapt’s translation technology is powered by AI, providing the most accurate and natural machine translations available. The new technology uses context to decide which translation makes the most sense. This creates a more natural, fluent translation – the closest to human translation quality that can be achieved.
