ADAM learning platform

ADAM is the University of Basel’s learning platform. On ADAM, lecturers can distribute documents, as well as organize and supervise a course’s learning stages online. There are numerous possibilities for interaction with and between students. In addition, everyone who uses ADAM can keep a personal portfolio on the desktop to reflect on their learning process, document selected results, and develop a skills profile.
