The current trend towards a personalised educational landscape requires a standards-based adaptation approach that responds flexibly to learner needs and shapes new learning environments, pedagogies, tools and media for learning. We present a set of simple tools to allow for the provision of an accessible relationship between the user's needs and the learning resource's capabilities. This paper demonstrates the potential of the tools and our adaptation approach through a case study that examines the authoring of an adaptable learning object and highlights the process of its adaptation to match the needs and preferences of a variety of learners.
