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.
  • The team owner can then add or remove learning resources (e.g., from the Files tab, web links or uploaded from their computer) at any time. 
  • 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".

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.

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!

Access GO1’s extensive content library 

GO1 has the world's largest library of online learning resources, from a network of phenomenal online learning providers like Skillsoft, Microsoft Learn, Thomson Reuters, and Josh Bersin Academy.

The GO1 Teams app can surface all of this learning content to your organization directly in Teams. With the GO1 Teams app, you can search GO1's learning resource library to both learn and share this learning with the entire team.

GO1 content can be viewed from within Teams, offering an incredible variety of learning formats in the Teams platform.

Connect the App to your LMS

By connecting a supported LMS, customers can also get a helping hand setting up teams in just a few clicks to perfectly mimic the course structure in your LMS!

In addition, resources can be pulled in automatically from the connected LMS. See our guides on how to connect an LMS to GO1 and connecting Canvas.
