gomo’s responsive HTML5 content gives users the freedom to learn on any device they choose.
The gomo player auto-senses the device, screen size and orientation and adjusts the content to fit, without jeopardizing the visual quality of the course. Unlike other ‘responsive’ authoring tools, there’s no need to spend time designing multiple layouts (desktop, tablet, smartphone, landscape, portrait). With gomo, you publish once, and the rest is taken care of.
Full screen - every screen
Because gomo content is fully responsive, there’s no need to specify screen size. gomo content will fill the screen on any device. No more courses sitting awkwardly in the middle of a screen, surrounded by empty space.
Responsive eLearning design using columns in gomo
In gomo, you create content to appear in a one, two, three or four column layout, which will display on all devices in the most effective way possible.
By using columns to handle responsiveness, gomo content always looks great on any device. On a smartphone, for example, a single column ensures that text, images, video and other gomo content (accordions, carousels etc.) always fill the screen and work perfectly.
Unlike some authoring tools, gomo does not squish a rectangle of content into one third of a smartphone screen, where the buttons are too small to touch and the text is too small to read.
With gomo, icons and buttons are big enough and finger friendly, text is large and legible, and images and interactions look great. Together, everything works perfectly, whatever the device or orientation.
Device targeting with gomo’s display conditions
gomo’s responsive eLearning design capabilities are extended even further with our display conditions.
gomo’s display conditions allow authors to easily create device-specific content, or content based on the value of a project variable. For example, a detailed graphic on a desktop or tablet display might become unusable on a smartphone screen. Authors can then choose to replace the graphic with a simplified version that works on a smaller screen.
Of course, having all these responsive design capabilities means very little if your courses are slow and clunky when they’re delivered to your learners. gomo has you covered here, producing the world’s most mobile-friendly eLearning courses.
Run a gomo course through Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test page and the results are impressive, with gomo scoring 100% for mobile friendliness and 99% for mobile speed.
Preview your eLearning course on multiple platforms in your browser
gomo’s built-in previewer lets you test out your courses on different devices and orientations, inside your web browser. You’ll be certain that your courses are going to work, before you deploy them.
gomo’s built in QR code generator even allows you to get the course onto your smartphone or tablet instantly for final testing. Try it with this QR code:
Integrated gesture support to boost interactivity
One of the major benefits of offering your gomo course on a mobile device is enhanced eLearning interactivity. Your learners have the opportunity to swipe through every page of the course or to enjoy gomo’s continuous scroll feature for instant access the content they’re looking for. No more ‘click next to continue’. This adds a whole new level of realism and immersion to your eLearning experiences. Learners are no longer just gathering information, but actively participating in the eLearning process.
Future proof your content
By utilising gomo’s responsive design features, you’re future proofing your eLearning content. Even if you’re not targeting smartphones today, you can be certain that you’ll need to soon. Design your courses in gomo and you’ve got future proof, responsive HTML5 content that will work on any device. You wouldn’t build a course in Flash today, so why build in a non-responsive eLearning tool.
Increased audience reach
People are using their tablets and smartphones more than ever to access information on-the-go and stay up to date with the latest news. Responsive eLearning design gives you the power to reach out to mobile learners rather than exclude them. Learners are looking for online courses that cater to their personal needs and preferences, and a gomo mobile-friendly course fits the bill, whichever device they’re using.
Reduced development costs
If you’ve got to build two versions of the same course, one for desktop and one for mobile, it’s probably going to double your development costs.
If your ‘responsive’ authoring tool forces you to set-up five layouts for every single page of your course (desktop, tablet, smartphone, landscape, portrait), then your development costs may escalate again.
With gomo, you build a course once and that’s it – the content will fill the screen on all devices, screen sizes and orientations. You have the benefit of producing just one deliverable without having to devote resources to other versions. You won’t have to worry about creating icons, images, and other online content that is specifically for mobile devices either. gomo’s responsive design capabilities will take care of all that for you.
