Non-technical

finding ADAPT hard

work

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

novice users."

Directors and employees at odds over

learning

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

a job.

The survey also revealed that employees'

and HR directors' expectations of L&D

programmes do not correspond.
