You can add multiple content assets, such as text pages, attachments or embedded links throughout your course structure.

Adding Assets

You add content to a Lesson or Topic in Synapse, by performing the following steps:

  1. Open the Lesson or Topic in which you want to add content.

  2. Select + Assets.

  3. You will be presented with the option to select Objective, Editor, Attachment, Embed, Knowledge Check, or Assessment.

You can also hover between assets and simply add one into the correct order by selecting the β€œ+” icon to the right of the cards.

Types of Assets

  1. Objective - use a learning objective to state specifically what the learner must be able to do by the end of this learning segment.

  2. Editor - here is where you can add text based content that includes integrated images, hyperlinks, code snippets and more!

  3. Attachment - you can add images, videos, PDFs and other file types. For many types of files, a preview is available as well.

  4. Embed - this is a block of HTML code that links to external content, for example YouTube videos. We support embed for over 400 content providers via a partnership with Embedly. We also support content that is supported in an iFrame.

  5. Knowledge Check - these are a great way to allow learners to self-assess whether they have retained the lesson content. Leveraging Multiple Choice, Multiple Response and True or False questions, you can add questions throughout your course to take a quick pulse check and view the correct and incorrect responses.

  6. Assessment - this option is for those looking to score, track and report on whether their learners have retained the course content. With advanced question types such as Fill In The Blank, Classification, Ordering, Matching and Hotspots you can easily align your assessment questions to measure whether your learning objectives have been achieved.

Editing Assets

Assets are initially created without a title. The title can be changed by clicking on the top of the asset where it says β€œNo title”, and then making edits to the asset title accordingly.

You can copy or delete the asset entirely by clicking on the three dots to the right of the asset title.

If you choose Delete an asset, the following dialog will appear:
