A Go1 wrap up for 2017

Kerrie-Anne Chinn, Content & Editorial Manager

As 2017 draws to a close, we thought we’d look back at some of the highlights of the past year – it’s been a very busy and exciting time for the Go1 team!

From the launch of The eLearning Assist webinar, to our new 24/7 customer support, and the many updates we’ve made to the Go1 platform, here’s what we’ve been up to throughout 2017.

Exciting Updates to the Go1 Platform

At Go1, we’re continually making improvements and updates to the Go1 platform, to make life easier for you – and your learners.

Throughout the year, we launched a stack of new tools to help you save time and streamline the way that you deliver learning material.

A handful of our many updates during 2017 included:

  • Simplifying the way in which you can purchase and assign content to your users
  • Making improvements to the Administrator dashboard, to include a new tab for Groups for quickly viewing and managing all of your groups in the Go1 portal
  • Making it easier for Administrators to distribute learning content and track user progress
  • Improving communication with learners, simplifying course bookings, and being able to save and schedule learning
  • Improving learner engagement, with a tool that encourages users to watch a full video, before being able to mark as completed and move to the next learning item
  • Allowing our Administrators to control how their portal will look, with options to customise login screens and images, portal banner images, color schemes and even add your company logo to the Menu Bar.

We hope you’ve enjoyed using these new features and tools in the Go1 platform!

Launch of The eLearning Assist

In 2017, we launched The eLearning Assist, with our inaugural webinar taking place on August 22nd.

We know that many of want to learn more about how to deliver an effective training program and get the most out of the Go1 platform, so we decided to pass on our knowledge to you through regular webinars.

This year, Go1’s VP of Marketing, Scott Cooper, alongside members of the Go1 team, talked us through many features of the Go1 platform, with step-by-step instructions and plenty of handy tips.

The eLearning Assist takes place every month and covers trending industry information, a demonstration of a Go1 Platform feature, and a Q&A session where we will cover any questions you might have around anything to do with online learning, content, training, or the Go1 platform.

Helping Organisations Improve their Learning Culture

Throughout the year, we’ve partnered with many businesses to help them improve the way they deliver and manage their employee training.

We teamed up with workforce automation solution specialists, Tanda, to make compliance easier for businesses across the world.

And partnered with learning management systems provider Totara to provide Totara partners with comprehensive training solutions for its customers.

We also helped companies such as Thrifty, ASG, HESTA and Claim Central develop a culture of learning across their organisation, through improved training.

Take a look at three case studies from this year, to see first-hand how the Go1 platform is helping companies to deliver improved learning to their teams.

The Go1 Blog

This year, we covered many exciting (and sometimes challenging!) topics on the Go1 Blog, as we explored all things learning and development.

From diving into the innovative world of gamification and VR, to talking about current trends in eLearning technology, our articles discussed many interesting facets of the learning industry.
