, an audit is a “systematic, independent and documented process for obtaining audit evidence [records, statements of fact or other information which are relevant and verifiable] and evaluating it objectively to determine the extent to which the audit criteria [set of policies, procedures or requirements] are fulfilled.” Several audit methods may be employed to achieve the audit purpose.
There are three discrete types of audits: product (which includes services), process, and system. However, other methods, such as a desk or document review audit, may be employed independently or in support of the three general types of audits.
Some audits are named according to their purpose or scope. The scope of a department or function audit is a particular department or function. The purpose of a management audit relates to management interests such as assessment of area performance or efficiency.
An audit may also be classified as internal or external, depending on the interrelationships among participants. Internal audits are performed by employees of your organization. External audits are performed by an outside agent. Internal audits are often referred to as first-party audits, while external audits can be either second-party, or third-party.

An auditor may specialize in types of audits based on the audit purpose, such as to verify compliance, conformance, or performance. Some audits have special administrative purposes such as auditing documents, risk, or performance or following up on completed corrective actions.

Adapt’s vision for the future includes the following key goals:
i) Create a leading authoring tool capable of producing responsive and multi-device e-learning;
ii) Encourage wider adoption of Adapt’s free and open source licence;
ii) Ensure Adapt’s authoring tool is intuitive and easy to use especially for those with the limited technical knowledge; and
iv) Support collaborative development and transition towards a ‘community-led governance structure’.What’s making users embrace Adapt Learning?
Here are some of the key reasons that’s leading multitude of users to transition towards Adapt’s authoring tool:key reasons Responsive Content: Deep scroll design Flexibility
Let’s take a closer look at what’s great and not so-great about AdaptIntelligent Design: Component driven: Cost efficiency: LMS Compatibility: Languages: Track between devices: Add-on costs No offline-access: Animations: Who is Adapt currently idealfor?
Adapt’s authoring tool is ideally for someone who needs to create courses that require ‘linear navigation’, need to be responsive across devices, are text and image based (no animations) and need to be created in a limited time frame.
However, for a course creator who needs to create content that can be accessed offline by his learners, Adapt Authoring Tool is not the ideal tool. Currently Adapt doesn’t support ‘branching scenarios’ either — if this is a requirement, course developer can only avail this feature via a paid version of Adapt authoring tool.Can Adapt Learning impact evolution of the eLearning world?
Experts believe that given Adapt Learning’s open source framework and authoring tool and its limitless potential, it would drive a significant change in the rapid learning development industry.
There are admittedly concerns like the learning curve is initially a bit higher and additional time needs to be invested, but the results would over time outweigh the investment.
Others believe that despite some obvious design limitations and even though Adapt is not yet a mature product, it is far from a fade. It will pave the way forward towards “unencumbered design in eLearning” which will allow instructional designers to explore “boundless possibilities of web design in their courses.”
