Don’t want to go with Synthesia’s in-built moderators (avatars)? Build your own! It just takes around five minutes to design a modified avatar.

Synthesia makes it simple for anyone to create on-demand videos. Videos can be used across the learning journey as small learning bytes, aka microlearning.
