How do I create and manage materials?

Materials are media files and web links that your attendees can download onto their devices. You can use materials to have your attendees review content or complete tasks before, during or after a session.

Create a new material

  1. Log in to your account at https://global.gototraining.com.
  2. Click Library in the left menu.
  3. On the Materials tab, click Create Material.
  4. Select 1 of the options:
    • From computer – Use this option to upload a new file from your computer. Click Select a file less than 100MB, select your file, add a description, then click Save. Note that GoToTraining supports all file types as long as it is less than 100MB.
    • Add link – Use this option to add a hyperlink to a file that is hosted elsewhere (such as a video that is uploaded to YouTube). Add the URL, a title and description, then click Add Link.
  5. The material will automatically be saved to your Library, where you can access it at any time and add it to any future sessions.

Add materials to a training

You can add many materials as desired to your session.
  1. On the Manage Training page, click Edit next to Materials.
  2. Click Add Material, then select one of the options:
    • From computer – Use this option to upload a new file from your computer. Click the Select a file less than 100MB link, select your file, add a description and then click Save.
    • From library – Use this option to select an existing file that has been previously uploaded and is now in your Library. Select the check boxes of the previously uploaded materials, then click Add Materials.
    • Add link – Use this option to add a hyperlink to a file that is hosted elsewhere (such as a video that is uploaded to YouTube). Add the URL, a title and description, then click Add Link.

  3. The material will be added to the Materials page. Click the Settings icon next to it to specify when it should become available to attendees, as follows:
    • Upon registration – If you select this option, then attendees will see a section on the Registration Confirmation page (and in the Confirmation email) that directs them to review the materials before the session. This link will take them to the Attendee Materials Page.
    • During the training session – If you select this option, then the material will not be displayed on the Attendee Materials Page until after the session's start time. Instead, attendees will see a Materials pane in their Control Panel or app toolbar. They can download the Materials from there.
    • After the training session – If you select this option, then the material will not be displayed on the Attendee Materials Page until after the session's end time.

Edit or remove materials from a training

  1. On the Manage Training page, click Edit in the Tests section.

    • To edit the material, click its title.
    • To remove the material, click the Delete icon next to it. Caution – this action cannot be undone!
