The Go1 Teams app delivers an incredible learning experience within Microsoft Teams. The app allows you and other members of your organization to find, consume, share, and discuss learning resources from within Teams.
The Go1 Teams app can make learning amazing for any organization. There are additional features available for organizations that connect an LMS to Go1. This article focuses on the features that are available for any organization, whether or not an LMS is connected to Go1.
Create spaces for learning (Learning tabs) in teams
The Learning tab is a convenient place within Teams to find, consume, share, and discuss learning resources. Team owners are able to quickly and easily set up the Go1 app for any of their teams, via direct chat with the Go1 bot. This setup process for a team will add Learning tabs to each channel of that team.
Create a structure for learning resources on a Learning tab
- The Learning tab is structured to have a section for each channel of the team.
- Resources are added directly to the Learning tab from Go1's Explore function, 'Search for content'.
- The team owner can then add or remove learning resources (e.g. from Files tab, web links, or uploaded from their computer) at any time.
- Team owners can upload their own interactive course files in SCORM, AICC or xAPI format; 'Add interactive learning resource'.
- As channels are added to the team, the team owner can also add new sections on the learning tab that correspond with those channels.
The Learning tab will also contain learning resources that have been "pinned" as useful by members of the team. Any member of the team can pin a learning resource via the message action "Pin to Learning tab".
Top Tip: Any resource posted in Chat can be pinned, not just Go1 content!
Consume learning resources in Teams
From the Learning tab, any member of the team can open a learning resource to view it within Teams wherever possible. Occasionally, some content won't be able to be embedded in Teams, but it will open in a new tab in the browser.
The app supports a wide range of learning resources including SCORM content, Microsoft file types from Teams (i.e. Excel, Word and OneNote documents), PDFs, links and more.
Sharing courses with others
You can share any learning resource with a friend or team - right from the course itself.
- Once you identify which course to share, select ‘Copy Link to content’, and share to a user inside or outside teams.
- Click 'Add to Learning tab' to surface within the teams Learning tab.
- The recipient of your link will be prompted to either login with their Go1 account details, or sign up for an account if they do not have one yet:
Start or continue a discussion about any learning resource
Team members can also start or continue a discussion about a learning resource. Discussions about learning resources will also appear in the channel associated with that learning resource, for all to join in!
- Click the speech bubble next to any resource to view or contribute to a discussion.
