gomo is an award-winning authoring tool that gives you the freedom to create elearning content the way you like, and to fulfil the learning requirements of your business and your learners. With gomo, creating your own training courses from scratch doesn’t need to be a long and complicated process. The gomo authoring tool and learning suite feature a handy quick start wizard, which helps learning designers set up and finish creating a course in just four easy steps.

Step one: Project details and languages

When building a course from scratch, your first task when using the gomo quick start wizard is to create the basic details for the the project. Give it a name and description, choose the file location, and lastly select a language or multiple languages. gomo allows you to deliver multi-lingual content to language speakers around the world, using XLIFF translation. You can have one course in as many languages as you like, leaving it up to the learner to choose when they begin the course for the first time.

Time needed: 30 seconds

Step two: Choose a theme

The second part of using gomo’s quick start wizard is to choose the ‘look and feel’ of your course. Select a design from gomo’s library of beautiful ready-made themes, which are regularly refreshed. Themes are applied to every page of your course for consistency, but any page can be adjusted later on. You can create your own themes based on your brand guidelines. Your course look and feel should never have to remain static – even if your organization undergoes major changes. Rebranding your company a few months down the line doesn’t mean redesigning hundreds of pages in hundreds of courses. Instead, you only need to update the theme and all your courses will be re-branded.

Time needed: 10 seconds

Step three: Content configuration

The third aspect of using the gomo quick start wizard is to set up the structure and the way content will be formatted for your course, allowing you to personalize eLearning content even further. Here you can choose menus and topics and include features like accessibility, glossary, search or help buttons in your course to maximize user experience.

Time needed: 20 seconds

Step four: Project access

The final step in creating your eLearning courses is to select which of your colleagues will be able to collaborate with you on the project. gomo includes three levels of access that you and your team can use when collaborating on courses:

  • An administrator can see everything on the project.
  • A reviewer is able to provide feedback by commenting on sections of the course.
  • Editors are able to make adjustments to the course.

Each role can be activated or deactivated by using an on/off slider to control their access, allowing you to resource your team and improve productivity by specifying roles.

Collaborating with colleagues is easy in gomo because it is hosted in the cloud, so that your team can work together seamlessly on projects.

Time needed: 20 seconds

Extra steps

Once the wizard is complete, you can begin to add in your content and work with your colleagues to complete the course. You can change the names of your topics, and also choose whether to use a slide-based or continuous scroll navigation method. There are also preview options so you can test your courses on different devices and receive review comments from your colleagues.
