The Summary interactive content type provides a set of statements that are used to help the learner remember key information, by actively building a summary about the topic at hand. The Summary interactive content type is the perfect way to strengthen your learners' ability to remember by encouraging them to build interactive summaries as they learn.

Summary interactions work best when they are presented to the learner immediately after learning the content. Placement examples include at the end of a text-based topic, or at the end of a video. When the learner has completed a summary, a complete list of key correct statements about the topic is the result.

There are no character limits and words wrap responsively. However, as a best practice, shorter is better.
