    Nope. There is nothing in Adapt for presenting / reading pdfs.
    It'll be a browser renderer or a desktop application.
    A screenshot always helps.

    I was thinking browser but its in chrome and edge. I was doing some searching from that aspect but was not coming up with anything. So thats why I was curious if it was from the tool
    I am not sure of any LVA app on my system. I will do some more digging. Thanks

    Are you sure that's not the name of the document?
    It's very difficult in that you've only given little glimpses of what's on your screen, as if I should be able to infer from a few pixels and a truncated url what's going on.

    Hello. Is the display of this error message a relatively new thing? I think at least in V3 Adapt you got an error message but could still view the entire course

    The Suppress LMS errors setting does not prevent this
    Oliver Foster
    @oliverfoster
    Yes, it's new(ish) and designed to prevent data loss. It's not an LMS error, it's a SCORM communication error on the client side.
    You can use index.html or scorm_test_harness.html instead of index_lms.html to view the course.

    Anyone have any experience with using Adapt courses in Cornerstone, and if so, have you run into any problems?

    Hello everyone! I've had the chance to use Adapt a few years ago and wanted to invest into a free-open source solution again for e-learning development. I'm a bit concerned to see that the latest authoring tool release on the Adapt official web page dates back to August 2019. I know the instructional designers's community is small but I was wondering where the project where at, and if there was to be continuous improvement and maintenance of the tools in the years to come? Thank you all for your honest input on this.
    I also read this when I looked at the adapt_authoring repositoy on Github and I'm not sure what to make out of it:
    Please note that this repository will receive no more major updates and will be archived once the new codebase reaches a stable v1.0.0 (and after a grace period to allow existing users to migrate).

    Hi everyone! I'm currently reviewing software compatibility for a new project and would like to know if anyone has had success publishing Adapt modules to a Wix site? I've heard horror stories of being unable to push files via FTP, and I'm wondering, on one hand if there's a work around, but more generally, is this just a bad idea from the start? Should we simply redevelop the site in WordPress?
    Oliver Foster
    @oliverfoster
    @GGRich Adapt is predominantly designed to go inside a Learning Management System such that users can be assigned courses and the course can send the results back for each user.
    If you want to host an Adapt Course as a website without the user management provided by an LMS, and you can upload files to a webserver and access them using the http or HTTPS protocol, then they should work fine.
    You can also host them externally and embed them into your site using an iframe.
    Adapt courses are just single page websites.

    I hope somebody can share some insight on the following: Does Adapt use cookies to store information on a local PC, and is this GDPR compliant?
    Or is this totally depending on the LMS?
    Oliver Foster
    @oliverfoster
    It's LMS dependent. i.e. if the course is launched by a SCORM compatible LMS, from index_lms.html, then the user data is stored on the LMS using the SCORM protocol
    If you're testing the course, using scorm_test_harness.html, then the user data is stored in a cookie as a temporary replacement for an SCORM compliant LMS
    You can also setup the course as a standalone website and store user data in a cookie.
    John Niezen
    @johnniezen
    That is what we are thinking of at the moment, but it requires us to notify the users and if they opt-out, cannot view the course
    Oliver Foster
    @oliverfoster
    I think you're misunderstanding me.
    The cookie isn't used unless you're testing the course.
    It isn't on by default.
    It's a testing feature

    @johnniezen
    I am taking a wrong approach, we use ie. the Google translate plugin, and that we need to ask consent for, which is not active at the moment, so we are looking for a way to use some means that the users now that items are "tracked/stored" and we were wondering if there was already something like that inplace
    Oliver Foster
    @oliverfoster
    Otherwise, the type of cookie doesn't require a warning as it's used for local storage and is not for collecting data.
    Cookie warnings are for cookies used to collect data from users.
    There's nothing like that in Adapt.
    Generally people are considered to consent to data storage when they're doing e-learning on a system in their business or otherwise when they have elected to do it.
    Oliver Foster
    @oliverfoster
    And because the LMS is in charge of data storage, it's the LMS owners job to allow the user to request their data deletion / specifiy what is being used.
    What is the Google Translate plugin for?
    John Niezen
    @johnniezen
    yes that one, as we have many different languages in EU, this was the fastest way for us to get a Course in a local language. However some folks do not want Google to know their data, so we are trying to figure out how to bypass that
