Try Go1’s Collaborative Course Creation Tools

Learning and Development departments have always been the gatekeepers of online learning content, not only distributing but also creating the content for their organisations.

What if we told you that it doesn’t have to be this way?

One of our latest updates to the Go1 Platform puts the creative power back into the hands of your learners themselves, and we are excited to announce our Collaborative Course Creation Tools.

Traditionally when it comes to course and content creation most organisations will have a team dedicated to creating their learning material, or have contracts in place with external contractors who are tasked with the job of preparing material.

For smaller businesses this can also fall back onto human resource managers, who already have very limited time to spend on creating learning material as they are generally juggling a multitude of tasks at any one time.

So why not start tapping into the knowledge within your team

There is no one that can create better learning content for your organisation than your team itself. They understand all aspects of your business, how you operate, and the processes behind the scenes. While providing training in areas such as compliance and workplace safety may need to be created by a specialist team, when it comes to onboarding, up-skilling, process improvement and training for systems knowledge, tapping into your team knowledge will allow for a much more accurate and tailored program.

In larger companies this can be a huge advantage. You have a range of subject matter experts at your fingertips, and sharing their knowledge with employees across other departments within the organisation can be a great way to develop a culture of collaboration and learning.

How to get started with Collaborative Course Creation Tools in Go1

Normally when you set up your Go1 portal, only Administrators have access to be able to create new content within the portal. The only problem with this in the past has been that you need to make a user an Administrator to starting building out content for your team, but that may expose them to elements of your platform that contain sensitive information.


To combat this problem we have added a new setting to your portal which allows to have all users within a portal creating content regardless of whether they are a student or an administrator.

To get started, click on your name in the top right corner of the screen and then select Portal Settings. From here head to the menu on the right hand side of the page and select the Configuration option.

Scroll to the bottom of the Configuration page and you will find 2 tick boxes under the Course Authors section. Tick the box labelled Allow all users to create content, then click the Submit button at the bottom of the page. That’s it, you’re ready to go!

Your portal is now set up to have all users creating content and helping by sharing their knowledge to train your team.

Don’t forget to tell your users about their new creative powers, and it also helps to set up an incentive program that rewards your creators, because after all their content is going to be able to take your organisation to the next level!
