My company have been using Adapt for a while now and we have a workable system in place. Myself and a colleague handle the framework side of the platform (menu/component creation and design, themes etc). Our learning designers then use the AT to input the course content before we go in and add the 'polish'.
From talking with our learning designers who would be considered 'non-technical users' we are constantly getting the same feedback:
- need for improved asset management
the current method is a pain to work with and creates allot of clutter. (not being able to edit an image and re-upload, no real delete, no drag n drop folders). We currently skip the asset manager altogether and use an external FTP but this is far from ideal for various reasons.
- import a course
For my company this is massive. You wouldn't believe the things we have to do to get a working process in place for archiving, backing up and versioning projects especially when you include theming/menu design in the framework.
From my point of view, I think resolving the above two issues will go a long way to opening up the platform to your average 'powerpoint level' user. As is it's no feasible to use the platform without a decent amount of technical knowledge.
