Leverage Our Expertise and Experience
Early in 2015, we were invited to develop a new course for a global retailer. One of their requirements was to use a new authoring tool – Gomo Learning Authoring. From this early project, we recognized the potential for a more agile learning authoring system that allowed for more direct collaboration with SMEs, faster output of learning experiences, and iteration development resulting in more flexible learning pathways. Since 2015, we have developed numerous courses for a multitude of customers crossing industries, regions, and languages. In addition to authoring our own courses and content using Gomo Learning, working with customers, we have been about to better engage both subject matter experts (rapid iterations), and learners.
