Extraordinarily helpful team

Reviewed 3 years ago

Excellent. First, Synap is helping my students to reinforce their knowledge of complex medical information. Traditionally, the most motivated university students have always formulated their own self-study test questions to improve their knowledge. However, although the bulk of students would be willing to use such question items, most of them would not have the time to formulate their own question...

Pros

Synap has made a bespoke online testing programme for my university medical school students to reinforce their knowledge. The software was greatly appreciated by the students, who liked the fact that it was easy to use and also worked with a mobile app (although most of my students seemed to access it with a laptop -- which makes sense for formal studies). I found that the Synap interface was easy to use both for uploading and for correcting issues with poorly performing items.

Cons

I do not have anything negative to say about the Synap workspace. I should say that my students did not use the spaced reinforcement function because our plans did not include it.

Excellent support for on-line courses

Reviewed a year ago

A personal service with appropriate expertise to allow the running of on-line education courses - presentation, candidate support and examination / testing support for accreditation.

Pros

We appreciated the personal support and interaction during the set up process

Cons

There is inherent lack of end-user integration, common to all on-line courses

Synap: the constant certainty in an uncertain strange world.

Reviewed 2 years ago

From my first meeting with this team, I was blown away by their professionalism, their ability to accommodate any and all (and even strange) request, and their willingness to assist and to provide an amazing professional service in very stressful conditions. Examinations are never an easy time to work with students for the first time, but as a Third world country we had some extra curveballs that...

Pros

We used the program for online examinations. It was incredibly easy to use. There are so many useful features, e.g the fact that students could access all the sources that they need on the platform, the life-chat function that provided immediate real-time and professional assistance, the recording of the examinations and the clear instructions, made this program ideal for our first online examinations.

Cons

The only thing would be (and this is just a suggestion, it was not a problem) If it is possible to highlight each correct answer for each student for MCQ questions. The rest was really easy and easily integrated in our current LMS systems.

Very impressed with the product

Reviewed 2 years ago

My overall experience with Synap has been very positive. When the first national lockdown was announced, our business was unable to continue running face to face training so have relied very heavily on this system for the past 6 months to deliver a high-quality product. In a very short amount of time, we put together a number of bespoke courses for new and existing clients. Synap made this much much easier for us to deliver.

Pros

The best thing about the system is how straightforward it is to learn how to use it. I felt very confident in creating courses after a very short amount of time. Also, I like that once content has been added to the library, I can put together a new course in 10 minutes. I love how responsive the development team is when I need them and how the system is always improving. I really like how as an admin I can switch over to study mode to see what a learner would see.

Cons

There is only one small issue that we have faced. We have clients in the NHS and one of the small problems we have is the deliverability of invitations to learners with NHS email addresses. This has been mainly down to the servers of such a large organisation. It is possible for the organisation to change this by whitelisting the Synap email address.

Impressive learning platform and outstanding approach to spaced learning

Reviewed 3 years ago

Outstanding support and attention to detail. We really appreciated reps going above and beyond to help us prepare for the pilot.

Pros

Spaced learning functionality supports long-term retention in an evidence-based and engaging format. Easy to create a wide variety of courses and assignments. Intuitive student user-experience and high quality on-boarding. Outstanding support for customising the platform for our use in a pilot study. Thank you Synap!

Cons

Group progress tracking could be streamlined, but the Synap team has quickly responded to all of our questions about this and found a great solution.

Amazing Team!

Reviewed 3 years ago

The Synap team are incredible! Always extremely helpful and happy to go that extra mile! They really have managed to take their technology to the next level with their amazing service. I would highly recommend them as an organisation. Look forward to watching the platform grow

Pros

Really easy to use platform Customisable according to your needs

Cons

Synap is an academic platform rather than a platform particularly designed for software firms like us so we weren't sure it would work, however with the help of the team we have been able to structure our content in a way that really serves our overall objectives

Excellent experience; highly recommend

Reviewed 2 years ago

Synap came to our rescue when we needed a platform for computer-based testing, with a short turnaround time. The representative assigned to us ([SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]) was outstanding and very thorough. She tailored the experience to our needs and stayed in regular contact, to help mitigate any issues. We are very impressed with Synap and hope to continue working with them for our annual testing needs.

Pros

Readily customizable on the development end. Easy to use. Helpful chat feature, when needed. Got great feedback from our examinees, who used the platform for educational testing.

Cons

I personally did not have any issues that were "cons".
