Synap Feature Reviews

8 reviewers had the following to say about Synap's features:

Harry W.

Extraordinarily helpful team

2019-03-12

Traditionally, the most motivated university students have always formulated their own self-study test questions to improve their knowledge.

Pros

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).

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 experience; highly recommend

2020-06-04

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.

Cons

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

Set up an LMS for my EdTech company.

2018-09-20

From the experience I've had so far with Synap, the team seem to have an in depth understanding of the difficulties and logistics of training and helping employees study for exams, with some pretty neat cognitive research behind it too.

Pros

It really is THE new platform to utilise for businesses looking to implement e-learning for their employees quickly and efficiently.

Cons

Can't fault the platform yet (been using for circa 6 months now)... let's hope it stays that way!

Impressive learning platform and outstanding approach to spaced learning

2019-07-10

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.

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!

2019-09-19

They really have managed to take their technology to the next level with their amazing service. I would highly recommend them as an organisation.

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

Synap: the constant certainty in an uncertain strange world.

2020-11-06

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 had nothing to do with the global coronavirus pandemic.

Pros

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 rest was really easy and easily integrated in our current LMS systems.

Very impressed with the product

2020-11-16

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.

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.

Great experience

2019-02-21

We feel confident we can go to the Synap team to present an idea or request a system feature and they are keen to explore the options with us.

Pros

Ease of moving from a static unusable system to Synap LMS platform allows us more freedom to incorporate the features we required for our company.

Cons

Nothing currently, always have been willing to take on new ideas and functions.
