• Snap Synapse is officially 10 years old today! Woohoo! What started as a side project for a young Web Developer and Instructional Designer in the early 2000s became its very own legal entity on April 30th, 2008. Back then the big project was helping AAA of Northern California, Nevada, & Utah organize their entire library of training content and creating customized eLearning modules for staff at all their branches.

In it we focus on bridging the gap between administrators and developers of content. It's really about making your content play nicely with you LMS, and making the experience transparent to your learners. If you missed it live, you can still watch the recording for free below.
