How do I create and manage materials? (Classic)

    Materials are media files and web links that attendees can download onto their devices. Organizers can use materials to have attendees review content or complete tasks before, during or after a session. You can upload .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .gif, .pdf, .doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, .xls, .xlsx, .txt, .zip, .7z, .rar, .csv, .mp3, .mp4, .avi, .mov, and .wmv files.

    Add materials to your Library

    1. Sign in to your account at https://global.gototraining.com.
    2. Select Library in the left menu.
    3. On the Materials tab, select + Add Material.
    4. Choose how you want to upload your material.
      • From computer – Use this option to upload a new file from your computer. Select the Select a file less than 100MB link, choose your file, add a description, then select Save.
      • 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 select 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 directly to a training

    You can add as many materials as desired to your session.
    1. On the Manage Training page, select Edit next to Materials.
    2. Select Add Material, then choose an upload method.
      • From computer – Use this option to upload a new file from your computer. Select the Select a file less than 100MB link, choose your file, add a description, and then select Save.
      • From library – Use this option to select an existing file that has been previously uploaded and is now in your Library. Choose previously uploaded materials, then select 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 select Add Link.

    3. The material will be added to the Materials page. Select Settings icon to specify when it should become available to attendees.
      • Upon registration – 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 – The material(s) 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 – The material(s) will not be displayed on the Attendee Materials Page until after the session's end time.

    Edit or remove materials from a training
