Open Source Tools for Learning

The Adapt Learning Framework caught my attention as soon as I heard about it. This open source, responsive framework works on the concept of modularity, uses contemporary design patterns, and is fully responsive. What got me excited primarily (besides its being open source!) was that here was an elearning authoring tool that actually generated good, well-formed code AND that you could touch and alter and work with in very deep ways. Unlike so many other authoring tool options, I can control every facet of my Adapt course. I was very eager to get my hands on it and create something.

So, I made some time to install the framework version of the tool and created an employee onboarding course for a (fictional) bespoke bicycle company.

Custom Game and Plugin Development

Inspired by the amazing work of the folks at Sponge UK, I also included a mini-game in Phaser JS to test employee knowledge. In order to get the game to act appropriately as a gate (something that would prevent the learner from moving on until completion), I developed a plugin for the framework that allowed the game to send a signal to the course to let it know when the user has finished the game.
