    Thanks for a thoughtful article. I’m particularly interested in how getting metadata into source content may be leveraged to provide specific content to software end-users based on their roles/permissions. Clearly, adaptive content requires and deserves significant research to develop strategies around how to make it a reality. Looking forward to the rest of the articles in your series.

    Hi Beth,

    Glad you enjoyed it. I have worked on several projects that do just that. There are several ways to crack a nut, the big question is what mechanism you will use to trigger adaptation? Will the software tell a local file? Will it call home to a server? Both? What do you have in place or what do you have in place that could process the request?

    Making the content adaptive takes some content modelling and design work, then you’ll need some systems-level work (tech stuff) to put in infrastructure so that it actually adapts when the time is right.
