Chuck Lorenz is an elearning developer who contributes to the Adapt learning project. We spoke to him to find out why it's one of the most talked about new elearning authoring technologies.

If you're not familiar with Adapt it's a set of free, open source tools that allow anyone to create responsive elearning content.

It means you can create one course that can be accessed on any type of device with a modern web browser whether you have programming experience or not.

You can find lots more information and examples of projects built in Adapt at adaptlearning.org

Chuck has recently been given a place in the Adapt steering group so we thought it would be a good time to catch up with him to get the perspective of an independent contributor.

"I like beautiful things, I like to help people, I like education, I like technology and that all fits together with Adapt"

Hopefully this podcast will inspire you to check out how Adapt could work for you and how you might be able to contribute to the project yourself in the future.
