Resources

Resources is an extension bundled with the Adapt framework.

Resources in action

Resources provides a way to present extra materials to the learner that is outside of content flow. Resources takes advantage of the Drawer—a panel that slides out from the right-hand side of the page. It is always accessible to the learner through an icon in the navigation bar. Resources organises links to documents such as PDFs, links to media, and links to other web resources.

Installation

As one of Adapt's core components, Resources is included with the installation of the Adapt framework and the installation of the Adapt authoring tool.

  • If Resources has been uninstalled from the Adapt framework, it may be reinstalled. With the Adapt CLI installed, run the following from the command line:
    adapt install adapt-contrib-resources

  • If Resources has been uninstalled from the Adapt authoring tool, it may be reinstalled using the Plug-in Manager.

Settings

The relationship between Resources's properties and the way they are presented in the authoring tool’s interface is governed by properties.schema.
