In our recent gomo webinar ‘How global organizations create and deliver eLearning at scale’ we welcomed questions from the audience at the end of the discussion. We’ve posted some of these for you below, with answers from gomo’s Business Development Manager, Thom Tate. If there are any unanswered questions about gomo after reading the Q&A then please contact us with your queries.
Q: How much does gomo cost, and is it a subscription?
A: We have two different types of pricing – we have the authoring and hosting options, which are split into Small (which is for an individual author), Medium (which provides four authoring licences), and for anything larger than that we have specific enterprise pricing which is based on the organization’s specific needs and offers even greater variety in the back-end. If you require more than four users, get in touch and we’d be happy to talk you through the options and pricing.
Q: Can you explain how delivering multiple language courses works?
A: With multi-lingual courses, you are going to create your course first in your default language, and you’ll go through and add your images, audio, video and any other media you would like. At that point, you would also choose the languages that you would want it to be in when you finish publishing and export the course as an XLIFF file, which all professional translators will be looking for to use as a translation file format. Once the content has been translated, you simply re-import that XLIFF file and add either a button or a hotspot image to the course to allow the user to choose between the language options. With localization, you can also implement different media to display alongside the difference languages to provide a tailored experience for each language.
Editor’s note: this works really well if you’re a global organization with learners in different countries. If you plan to include, for example, a photo of each office location in your course, you can set different images for each location.
Q: Can learner analytics, such as quiz outcomes and answers, be exported to something like a CSV for review of the whole cohort?
A: Yes! You can run reports within gomo itself, or you can export report data from your gomo analytics account as CSV file to process as you wish in order to carry out your own analysis.
Editor’s note: Read this blog to find out more about how gomo uses xAPI to create detailed learning analytics.
Q: So, we don’t need to have visual design skills to use gomo?
A: That’s right – you either modify one of the standard themes in gomo to match your brand colors or we can create a theme for you to your exact requirements. After that, all your team needs to do is select that theme and simply focus on the actual learning content.
Editor’s note: Here are some of gomo’s customizable themes. There’s more information on how quick and easy it is to our eLearning themes here.
Q: What are the system requirements for the users, and can it be used on Mac as well as PCs?
A: gomo is entirely cloud based, so it can be used across multiple operating systems and browsers. We prefer working in Chrome, but we have people using gomo authoring on Safari with a Mac, as well as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Edge and more. If you would like a detailed list of different browsers and operating systems across platforms you can find that on our support site in the system requirements area. On this site you can also find multiple videos and articles full of tips and tricks to help you get the best out of gomo.
Thanks again for all of your questions!
