I love working with Adapt because it's the most flexible Authoring Tool out there. Any design or interaction can be created without any limitations forced upon you. Other tools force innovation from the top-down but with Adapt anyone with an idea can create a plugin or a new way of working. Whilst other authoring tools have gotten more and more expensive, Adapt is totally free to use and modifiy. Adding to this is the amazing community of users of the tool. Adapt brings developers together across from rival e-learning companies to work on developing the best authoring tool on the market. I love being able to both learn from others and share back too. Being open source Adapt is seen as a little "rough around the edges", but I strongly believe at it's crux it is the best authoring tool on the market for any e-learning agencies or team who can invest in using it.
Becoming the "Adapt Freelancer"
I started working with Adapt whilst working as a developer at Kineo, who created and open sourced Adapt. I worked in their e-Learning content team creating high-end, bespoke e-learning courses for their clients. This was when I first got stuck in contributing to core Adapt as the sole developer responsible for a UI overhaul of the Authoring Tool.
After Kineo I joined King's College London as a web developer and in-house Adapt expert for their rapdily growing e-learning team of over forty people, one of the largest internal teams in the world using Adapt.
As part of my interest in growing and celebrating the Adapt community. I organised the Adapt Meetup London, the first and largest official event for the Adapt. The event was hugely success over 100 attendees. You can read about it here.
I setup Adapt Freelancer in mid 2018 to respond to the visibly increasing demand for Adapt. Responsive authoring tools are on the rise (pun intended) and Adapt acts as the clear choice for many companies who are looking to embrace this new trend.
I starting out working just weekends and evenings around my day job at King's. After a few months it became clear that I couldn't keep up with client demand so I handed in my notice at my job so I could continue to serve more clients and grow my buisness.
Outside of work
I'm a 29 year old based just outside of London. My interests include history, politics, video games and music. Mexican food is my favourite cuisine. I probably drink too much coffee. My record for keepy-ups is 54. Ninety nine red ballons is my go-to karaoke song.
