In this episode of The Adapt Tips Podcast, Simon talks to Matt Horton from We Know Training about the process that a  larger size e-learning agency goes through to create themes in Adapt for their clients.

We discuss the styling options available in Adapt, the steps that are required to coordinate between client, designer and developer, and the benefits that good accessibility brings to everyone.
