Hey Lisette,

Firstly I'd like to welcome you aboard. It's really great to hear that teachers working in schools could benefit from Adapt. I was a teacher for 4 years before joining Kineo and building Adapt, so I really see that Adapt can help learning across a variety of mediums.

We're in a process of building an editor that is coming along nicely. We hope that by having an editor we're able to easily create engaging content.

We already have a version of the framework built for internal use and would love the opportunity to show you what it can do, what we've done and how easy it should be to make learning content.

The idea of blended learning (using both e-learning and face-to-face) is a great idea for teachers and students. In terms of special needs learning, I think with a few of the new Web APIs coming out - building "components" (a term used for our pluggable interactions) that can help with teaching special needs are perfect for Adapt. I went to a really inspirational talk from Amit Pitaru, (http://pitaru.com/) who had built some cool interactions for special needs students and I felt Adapt could easily do this.

Personally, I'm really interesting in learning and to hear a company that sound so passionate about learning/teaching wanting to get involved or express their interest means we're doing something right.

If you'd like a demonstration about Adapt please email me at: daryl.hedley@kineo.com and we can arrange a preview of what Adapt can do and possibly about what you might want to contribute.
