GO1 remote learning gets a lift with Microsoft Teams

A Queensland-based training and content provider known as the "Netflix for the workplace" will soon be part of Microsoft's answer to business communications tool Slack.

GO1, which 13 months ago raised more than $30 million in a Series B funding round led by Microsoft, has announced today its integration with Microsoft Teams.

The move will give anyone using Teams access one of the world's largest libraries of online learning via the GO1 app, enabling individuals to find, consume, share, and discuss learning resources.

The company was founded by Vu Tran, Chris Hood, Andrew Barnes and Chris Eigeland, who were featured in Business News Australia'sTop 100 Young Entrepreneurs List last year.

"We are delighted to partner with Microsoft to provide an incredible learning experience within Microsoft Teams," says GO1 CEO and co-founder Andrew Barnes (pictured right with co-founder Vu Tran).

"In these times where remote learning has become a necessity for many, we are looking forward to helping organisations to improve ease of access and engagement for learning content."

The training resources and content that are visible can be tailored to different teams, while the app also interactive content formats like SCORM, AICC, and xAPI.

"We are pleased to announce this relationship with GO1 to deliver a fantastic end-to-end learning experience within Microsoft Teams," says Microsoft Teams' program manager for partnerships in education, Steven Abrahams.

"Being able to access content directly in Teams, and facilitate robust conversations about that content, helps create a rich environment conducive to learning of all kinds."
