gomo Adds Powerful Learning Video Technologies

Brighton (UK), September 2018 - The gomo authoring and hosting suite adds several powerful new learning video technologies, including screen capture, automatic caption generation and translation, video recording, video upload, video editing, and video content management.

gomo, an award-winning cloud-based, fully responsive eLearning authoring tool and delivery suite, is delighted to announce a raft of new video-based features. The newly expanded gomo authoring and hosting suite has been made possible following the recent PeopleFluent acquisition by gomo's parent company, Learning Technologies Group plc, which includes learning video specialists, KZO Innovations. With gomo video, users can now upload, record, manage, edit, and distribute videos with PowerPoint and PDF synchronisation, searchable time-stamped chapters, social features, and more. The new gomo video technology comes as standard with automatic caption generation (known as closed captioning), as well as automatic caption translation, allowing learning and development professionals to roll out videos to a global audience in minutes. In addition, gomo video (powered by KZO Innovations) adds screen capture technology to gomo's growing list of capabilities. Again, gomo's screen capture technology supports automatic caption generation and translation, allowing organizations to roll out multilingual software training with ease. Jeff Fissel, Video Product Owner at gomo, said, "Adding our video technologies to the gomo authoring suite is a game changer. We're delighted to be part of the gomo family. Combining our video technologies with their world-leading HTML5 eLearning authoring tool allows us to provide a complete solution to our customers worldwide. gomo and KZO complement each other perfectly, providing the most complete eLearning authoring, hosting, and video solution on the market." Mike Alcock, Managing Director of gomo, said, "This is a truly revolutionary moment in the history of gomo. Up until now, we've offered our global customers access to world-class eLearning authoring and hosting tools. Now, we can offer organizations and their learners that all-important 'YouTube experience': user-generated content that's easy to upload and share, as well as video content that can be easily created, shared, and tracked. With screen capture (something our customers have been asking for repeatedly), automatic captions, automatic translations, and social features, we can revolutionize the way companies can reach their global audiences. "In keeping with gomo's philosophy of 100% cloud-based products, all of this capability is provided via a web browser. There is nothing to download or install. Like all gomo's products, everything is also fully responsive and adaptive, and all the new gomo video features work perfectly on all devices, adapting seamlessly to the screen size and orientation of the user's device."
