Since August 2018 I've worked with over twenty clients around the world, providing them with my consulting and development services. My client's are usually either an e-learning agency who is looking to start using Adapt to deliver their client's projects or in-house L+D teams who require an Adapt specialist to get them on their way.
Every client brings a unique challenge that needs to be solved. I am ready to listen to your problem, diagnose the solution and then execute on the delivery. I work flexibly and can adjust myself to work around your team. Here are some success stories from clients that I've worked with.
Shelter, the UK housing and homelessness charity believe everyone has the right to a safe home. More than one million people a year come to them for advice and support in defence of their rights. Shelter are aware that by training professionals across Local Authorities, as well as other advice and support agencies they can amplify their own impact and change the country. They use Adapt to create highly effective knowledge products, upscaling their offer of support and qualifications to professionals.
Adapt Freelancer has been collaborating with them to create bespoke themes for each of their departments that adhere precisely to their brand guidelines. As well as enhancing existing open-source plugins to make their knowledge products work exactly as their own designer intended.
Shelter is now in a position where they are using Adapt to consider how they can roll out online learning of the highest standard to their own staff and volunteers.
"Adapt Freelancer supported initially with two of our Scotland based projects; the Scottish Empty Homes Partnership and then Shelter Scotland with a follow-up project on financial support. Adapt Freelancer has been instrumental in getting Shelter to the position we are now in. Which is one where we are looking at implementing this way of building knowledge products with Adapt across our internal and external L&D departments." - Nathan Sheach, Designer, Shelter Scotland.
Ken Cook are a e-learning agency and training provider based in the U.S. They contacted me requiring assistance to create an e-learning solution for their end client with heavy game-based learning elements. The project had been in limbo for months and they were looking to bring in Adapt expert to ensure they hit the client's deadline. I helped by optimising their Adapt build to run smoothly as well as developing these game based elements in Phaser.js to be contained in the final Adapt course.
Excellent job! Thank you Simon for collaborating with our existing creative team and developers, troubleshooting existing problems and streamlining our production work. Your experience and knowledge made it possible for us to hit our deadlines with an excellent end result. Thanks again! I look forward to our next project together. - Eddie Garcia, Creative Director of Online Training, Ken Cook.
April Strategy are a consultancy based in London specialising in the consumer packaged goods, financial services, automotive and healthcare sectors. They were intrested in expanding an exisiting Adapt e-Learning module produced by another e-Learning agency into eight brand new modules. The project involved duplicating the existing course then adding and replacing text and assets to repurpose the content for new markets. Costs were kept low by the use of an existing theme which removed the need for a designer or a new custom theme. They also needed a partner who would be happy to maintain an ongoing relationship so that as requests for new amends came they could be delivered promptly.
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. - Tim Keogh, Partner, April Strategy.
Flow Hospitality Training (Flow) delivers a comprehensive learning and development solution tailored to the hospitality industry. Their offerings include a portfolio of e-learning modules and a feature-rich LMS. They were looking to enhance their current module portfolio and start offering responsive and accessible content to their customers. After initial research into the responsive e-learning authoring market, they decided to investigate Adapt. Its open-source foundation meant that Flow could modify the tool to work within their existing and highly efficient deployment environment in a way that other off-the-shelf authoring tools couldn't.
Flow first partnered with Adapt Freelancer to provide expert advice on what was possible in Adapt and the possible workflows that the tool enables. After their discovery phase, Flow worked with Adapt Freelancer again to create a demo to present to internal stakeholders to realise their vision for what a Flow e-learning module would look like in Adapt.
Flow were pleased to see they could achieve a good quality output from the Adapt tool, in particular with the retention of many of the more engaging elements of their existing e-learning, like games and large animated graphics, whilst still supporting multiple devices and screen sizes as their clients had been requesting. They especially appreciated the expert knowledge Adapt Freelancer brought to the project, making what could have been an arduous discovery/proof-of-concept phase run smoothly and efficiently.
Liberate Learning are a award winning e-Learning agency based across Australia. We have had an ongoing relationship running across multiple client projects to provide bespoke learning experience in a responsive e-Learning tool. I've worked with their graphic artists to create themes to match their design. I've provided suggestions on the best plugins they can use to match their clients demands and when they don't exist, create them myself.
Know How! AG are a German company that deliver a range of learning solutions. They commisoned me to create a gamification plugin as part of a larger offering for their end client. The project was completed in under three weeks, with development taking place on Know How!'s private repistory so they had retained their full control of the project.
OutThink are a London-based cybersecurity startup. For one of their clients we created a short e-Learning module built in Adapt. We went through multiple iterations of the theme to ensure it matched the client's strict brand guidelines. I also commissioned a Graphic Artist to create custom images and animations that were used throughout the module.
