Adapt Framework v1.0 release on 28th January 2014

It is with great pleasure that we announce the official release of version 1.0 of the Adapt Framework.

We are delighted to release the Adapt Framework to the public today. It has been a great collaborative effort and we hope it will have a big, positive impact on the e-learning industry. The framework is free to use and modify. We would like to establish it as an industry standard while we are working on the authoring tool.

Thanks to everyone involved for your hard work on refactoring the code and building a great framework for the future of e-learning delivery.


The Adapt Framework is a generic codebase, on which developers can build responsive design e-learning courses.

This initial release is aimed at developers and technical people. We have tried to make this framework as easy to work with as possible and enable you to create high-quality, responsive design courses within a very short amount of time.

We value stable code and have tested this release thoroughly. The framework includes automated unit tests and has been tested by City & Guilds Kineo’s testing department.

Get the code here.

It’s totally free and released as open source under the GPL 3.0 license.


The Adapt Framework is the first major deliverable for the Adapt Learning open source project.

City & Guilds Kineo donated the framework in September 2013 and the collaborators on this project (including Learning Pool and Sponge UK) spent the last few months refactoring this framework to be more modular and built on a plug-in architecture.

The Adapt Framework includes a rich feature set, including various presentation and question components, the ability to deliver assessments, SCORM tracking and also a powerful command line tool for developers to manage their projects easily.

We are aiming to establish this as the de facto responsive-design, e-learning Framework in the marketplace and hope this will be an enabler and have a positive impact overall.


The collaborators will now use the framework to deliver projects and we hope you will, too.

Our focus on the open source project will now be on specifying and developing the authoring tool, which will be built ‘on top’ of the Adapt Framework and aimed at non-technical end users. We will also carry on extending the feature set of the Framework and would like to call everyone to help yourselves to the code and to get involved in the project to enhance the Framework and define and build the authoring tool.

Many thanks and we look forward to your feedback!

The Adapt Learning team
