Learning platform release notes: August to September 2022

Overview

Looking over the past two months, we have been working on providing more control over the learning experience we offer by upgrading the playback functionality, so you can learn at your own pace. There will be more work in this area to provide a more equitable learner experience, as referenced in our latest product webinar for customers.

For Administrators and Managers, we have made it easier to assign and manage mandatory learning across the platform, and have an ongoing project to make these essential tasks as seamless as possible. At Go1 we champion easy access to learning for all. Our focus lately has been on integrating with key partners such as Microsoft, Slack, and Workplace from Facebo. These partners enable your employees to learn at the point of need, in the flow of work.

Release highlights

Better search recommendations

The new suggested search UI provides a clearer way for users to continue their search. Users can now see suggested search categories in a new and more structured layout, allowing them to dig into their preferred search results more efficiently.

Course feedback

Learners can now provide feedback on their experience at the end of every course. Supporting us in our quest to get to know our learners better and which content resonates with learners across the board. The ability to provide feedback is available across all learning resources available via the Go1 Content Hub. It is also available for all courses created using Go1's content authoring feature by administrators.

Improved Welcome message

We have improved how your welcome message is presented on your learner dashboard. The text is separated from the image for accessibility, so learners do not have a compromised experience when they land on the learner dashboard.

Learn at your own pace

A Playback Speed feature is now available on all video learning resources available via Go1 Content Hub, including videos you have uploaded through the course creation feature as an administrator. Allowing learners to play the video speed faster or slower as they need, to suit their needs.

Youtube and Vimeo already have this functionality so there is no change for videos hosted by these sites. You can adjust the playback to 0.25x, 0.5x, 0.75x, 1x (normal), 1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, and 2x speed.

Improvements to mandatory learning

We are excited to provide an opt-in experience that provides an improved way of assigning and managing learning. Go1 platform administrators can now opt in to access our new Manage page, available for every course and learning resource.

This new feature allows you to assign and manage mandatory compliance, professional development, and performance management training to one or more learners. We have also combined the assign and enrol flow to just assign across the Go1 Platform. From the Manage page, you can perform the following actions:

  • Assign learning.
  • Manage assigned learning.
  • Edit assigned learning.
  • Reassign learning.
  • Delete assigned learning.
  • Add a due date for self-directed learning.

This new feature is available for optional opt-in from the Results or Reports tab of any learning resource. We do not currently have a mandatory roll-over date for this experience. Make sure you sign up for the Go1 research group to shape how this experience meets your needs.

Learning in the Flow Apps

Context-switching is one of today’s biggest barriers to employee productivity; as it makes it harder to get essential work completed. We integrate with a range of Learning in the Flow products to remove barriers to learning:

  • Bring learning to all your workforce without having to switch to another learning platform.
  • Make learning personal and cater to individual learning preferences.
  • Deliver just-in-time learning experiences with relevant content and feedback to drive productivity.
  • Reduce the cost of delivering training.

Slack

Our Slack integration is now live and in beta testing. Make sure you sign up for the Go1 research group to shape how our Slack integration meets your needs.

Microsoft Viva

Now that Microsoft Viva is widely available, you can now deliver learning resources from Go1 through your Viva platform. 

Workplace from Facebook

Does your workforce use Workplace from Facebook? Deliver learning from Go1 in this beta experience. Make sure you sign up for the Go1 research group to help shape how our integration with Workplace by Facebook meets your needs.
