Courses published from Adapt can currently be published in two different formats.
The most commonly used is SCORM as this enables the content to be installed on any SCORM conformant Learning Management System - and allows the course to store data about what the user has done within the course both for reporting purposes and also so that the user can pick up where they left off in a subsequent session.
You can also publish without SCORM support. Running Adapt output published in this way requires nothing more than a regular web server*. But you will have no tracking.
It would also be possible to publish a course with SCORM enabled - but run it from a web server using the file scorm_test_harness.html - this would trick the course into thinking it's running from a SCORM learning management system when in fact it's just storing all the user's data in cookies. This is really intended more for development purposes than for live use - but it should work OK.
We are currently working on adding support for xAPI to Adapt.
* the web server will need to support all the file types used by Adapt. Adapt mostly uses pretty standard web file types (e.g. HTML/CSS/JS/PNG/GIF/JPEG) but also uses some types that a web servers don't support e.g. JSON support isn't always enabled.
