finding ADAPT hard
Non-technical HR experts are struggling
with open source e-learning tool ADAPT,
according to Can Studios.
The Sheffield-based e-learning company
says that the flexibility and the vast range
of plugins that made ADAPT so popular
with course designers in 2017 is off
putting for line managers.
Non-technical users need to start work on
a lighter version of ADAPT. To counter
this problem, Can Studios says it is
looking to make the authoring tool easy
enough for anyone to use.
Paul Hilton, Can Studios CEO, said: "Too
many non-technical users are wooed by
the potential of ADAPT only to become
overwhelmed by its scope. We're aiming
to open ADAPT's power up to the
masses by taking away the early set-up
and getting started issues that plague
Directors and employees at odds over
Surveys of 100 UK HR directors and
1,000 UK employees, has found that
97% of organisations believe their
employees' learning and development
(L&D) is important, yet only 82% have a
formal learning programme in place.
The research by learning technology
company D2L found that 77% of
employees believe workplace learning is
important to their continued professional
development (CPD), with 37% claiming a
lack of training had negatively impacted
their career. Furthermore, 38% of
employees state they would consider the
quality of employee training when offered
The survey also revealed that employees'
and HR directors' expectations of L&D
programmes do not correspond.
