Hi there, my name is Simon Date. I'm a freelance Adapt Learning Consultant and Developer who's been working with the technology for six years.

Due to it's responsive design, huge variety of interactions and near infinite customisation, I'm firm in my belief that Adapt is the world's most powerful Authoring Tool.

It's my personal mission to help e-learning teams like yours to succeed with Adapt.

Are you ready to work with me?

  • We are researching responsive Authoring Tools and discovered Adapt
  • We are sold on Adapt as our chosen solution and we are ready to get started with it
  • We use Adapt already and are looking to improve how we use it
  • We are looking for looking for a developer to create custom themes or plugins
  • We want Adapt set up in the cloud so our remote team can work together online

Why Adapt?

Traditional e-learning Authoring Tools like Storyline and Captivate are being phased out in favour of responsive e-learning content as today's workforce expects modern web design in their e-learning.

Adapt offers itself as the best choice for those who are looking to embrace this new trend.

Adapt supports over 100 unique interactions meaning that your courses will be engaging for learners.

It has powerful themeing options so you can always keep your learning on brand.

We are looking at implementing this way of building knowledge products with Adapt across our internal and external L&D departments.

Adapt's high level of fidelity and customisation have garnered consistent success. The Learning Technologies Awards, which hands out accolades to the best e-learning content are dominated by courses that are created in Adapt.

Alternatives exist on the market but Adapt is the open source option. Only by working with open source tools do you have the ability to ensure your ability to access and modify your courses in the future.

Adapt has no per-user licence so you won't have to get out your credit card each time, as your team grows.

Why work with me?

I'm well trusted

I've already worked with over twenty-five e-learning teams, just like yours, across a variety of projects.

See for yourself on my Client testimonials page.

Client testimonials

A specialist, not generalist

I've been using Adapt as my sole authoring tool for over six years. In that time I have mastered how to take advantage of Adapt’s varied features, to find new ways to work with Adapt, and how to create beautiful e-learning for my clients.

Whilst other agencies and freelancers can have up to half a dozen Authoring Tools on the go, I believe that specialising in one produces superior results.

Simon has proven to be a great partner for us to work with to expand our Adapt based offerings. He has been very transparent about how he works and is always prompt in replying to emails. Working with him as been a real pleasure.
