Introduction

Go.Learn lets you to access your platform directly from your mobile devices. Through the app, you can easily attend courses, complete training material, and view various assets and channels.

The Go.Learn Mobile App is available for both iOS (including iPads) and Android devices. You can download the app by searching for “Go.Learn” in the Apple Store or in Google Play.

Please note that the Mobile App has no Admin functionality. Rather, it is for end users (learners).

Logging into your Mobile App

To access the app, tap on the app’s icon to launch it. On the first page, insert your learning platform’s URL in the Platform URL text box or choose it from the suggestion list that appears, showing the URLs of the latest platforms into which you logged in successfully. 

Please note that the URL of your platform and your Mobile App are the same. If you need help, contact your platform Administrator. Then, press Proceed to Login Page and insert your username and password. If configured by your Admin, you can also flag the Remember Me option so you don’t have to login again every time you launch the app on your device.

Alternatively, the Mobile App supports Single Sign On (SSO). You can press the Sign In with SAML/OKTA, Sign In with AUTH0, OpenID Connect or Google Apps (Gmail) button to log into the app this way. Once you’re ready, press Sign In to access your platform. After you sign in, if your administrator set some additional fields that you must fill in to complete your profile (e.g. your fiscal code, the country where you live, etc.), the Additional Fields page will open, in which you’ll have to fill in the required additional fields.

If you forgot your password, click on Lost Password. Then, insert your username or your e-mail address in the corresponding field. You’ll receive an e-mail with instructions. Please note: To reset your password, you have to access to your e-mail account from your mobile app or from desktop.

The Go.Learn language is the one you set in the language settings of your device, regardless of your preferred language in the platform. If your device language is not available for Go.Learn, the app language will be set to English. Remember if you deactivate the language that you’re using on your mobile device from your desktop platform, some parts of the app’s interface may be displayed in your device language and some other parts may be displayed in your platform default language.

Creating an Account via the Mobile App

If you don’t already have an account in your learning platform, you may be able to create an account from the login page of your mobile app, depending on how your Administrator has configured your learning platform.

To do so, press the Register button on the login page, then fill in all of the mandatory information to create your account. You may be required to choose a branch of your company’s organizational chart (branches can be related to offices, agencies, divisions, units, countries, etc.). In this case, you need to go to the second page of the registration process to fill in the fields linked to the branch you chose. You may also need to accept your platform’s privacy policy and/or Terms & Conditions in order to create the account. Press Register again once you’re finished. If there are any errors in the data that you filled in the required registration fields, an error message appears at the bottom of the page, and you’ll be redirected to the page containing the wrong data to correct it.

In order to confirm your account, you will then receive an email, depending on how your Administrator has configured your learning platform. Once your account has been confirmed, you can log into the app from your mobile device as well as the desktop platform.

The Menu of Your Mobile App

Menu of Your Mobile App

The menu icon on your Docebo mobile app is found in the top left corner of your screen. When you press the icon, you will see your avatar, your email address, and the list of pages composing the menu. 

The menu structure, the app homepage and the layout of the pages within the menu are managed by your Admin, and may change over time.

Click on the power icon to logout of your account. Please note that you cannot edit any of your account information on the Mobile app, but only on the desktop version of your platform.

Self-Enrolling into Courses or Learning Plans

self-enrollmentIf you find courses or learning plans that interest you in a catalog, you can self-enroll into the course or learning plan directly in the app, so you don’t need to go to your platform’s desktop version to do so.

Please note that while using your mobile app, you cannot self-enroll into classroom and webinar sessions and courses, nor can you purchase courses or learning plans that are for sale directly in your app. In order to perform these activities, access your learning platform via desktop.

After selecting a course from the catalog, tap on the course image or title to view its details. Here, you can enroll into the course (if allowed by your Admin), read a description about the course, and view a list of learning content included in the course.

When enrolling, your Admin may require you to insert some additional information during the process. After filling in the additional fields, the Enroll Now button on the top right of the page is activated. Press the button to complete the enrollment process. Once you’re enrolled, the course or learning plan will be listed on your My Courses and Learning Plans page.

If self-unenrollment is allowed by your Admin, you can self-unenroll from a course or a learning plan. In order to do so, press the ellipsis icon in the top right corner of the course’s page or the learning plan’s page, then press the Unenroll button at the bottom of the page. You are now unenrolled from the course or the learning plan that you selected.

The My Channel Page

The My Channel page is accessed by clicking on the My Channel tab in your main menu. Here, you can see all of the contributions you have made in your platform as well as your playlists, if you’ve created any. You can press each object to view and engage with it. The My Channel page is only visible if the Coach & Share feature is active in the platform.

Sharing Content

sharing contentDepending on how the Superadmin configured your platform, a plus button may be shown on the bottom right corner of all of the pages accessible from the main menu. Click on the plus button to upload an image or a video directly from your mobile device, or to share a link.

When uploading a photo or a video, either select it from your camera roll or take it on the fly. Fill in the title and the description fields, then optionally add tags to your content. Select one or more channels where you would like to share your image/video or set it as private so that it will be visible only to you and the people you personally invite. If the Set as Private option is selected, you will not be allowed to assign your content to any channel.

When sharing a link, copy and paste the website URL in the Link field. The link thumbnail, title and description will be automatically uploaded, but you can modify them later. If no thumbnail is available, a default image will be loaded. Please note that if you are sharing a Google Doc, it will be displayed in web app responsive mode. Optionally, add tags to your content. Select one or more channels where you would like to share your link or set it as private so that it will be shared only with the people that you personally invite. If the Set as Private option is selected, you will not be allowed to share your link within any channel.

Please note that the Set as Private option may not be available, depending on the configuration set by your Administrator.

Once all of the mandatory fields have been filled, the Upload button will be enabled. Press this button to finalize the upload. When the upload is complete, it may take a few minutes before the content is available on the app. While in waiting status, the content will be greyed out until it’s ready to be played.

Viewing Informal Learning Assets

Viewing Informal Learning AssetsOnce you click on an asset’s tile, either from the My Channel page or from the All Channels page, or from a specific channel’s page, you can then view general info about the asset in the Overview tab, and related content that may interest you in the Related To tab.

To play the asset, press the Open This Asset button at the bottom of the app. You can also rate the asset after viewing it by pressing the Rate this Asset button, selecting the amount of stars that you want to apply to the asset, then pressing Rate Me.

Downloading & Playing Offline Content

download contentIn the mobile app, certain types of learning objects (SCORM, uploaded videos, slides, files, and HTML page learning objects) can be downloaded, played and tracked offline. Full courses (but not full learning plans) can be downloaded as well. On the contrary, videos from Youtube, Vistia or Vimeo cannot be downloaded. Please note that this is only applicable for the mobile app, not the mobile browser version of the platform.

When your app is online, access the course, then press the ellipsis icon in the top right corner and press the Download button that appears at the bottom of the screen. Alternatively, you can download a specific learning object by pressing by ellipsis icon in the object’s row on the screen, then pressing the Download button that appears at the bottom of the page.

All of the objects that are downloaded for offline viewing are compressed so that the required data to be transferred is reduced to the minimum size, thus saving time and memory space for the download.  After the download is complete they are expanded by the app so that they can be played immediately.

You can see the progress of the download directly on your screen. In case there are any errors during the download process or if your phone does not have enough free storage space to download an object, an error message and icon will appear.

Once courses and objects are successfully downloaded, you’ll find them in the Offline Content area of your app. Access that section from your main menu. From here,  you are able to play the downloaded courses and learning objects when you’re in offline mode, and your progress will be tracked. Once your app is online again, your progress will be synced and your platform will record the progress you made while offline. Please note that if you are playing the same learning object on both the mobile app and your desktop platform, the most recent tracking will take priority.

Once your app is online again, the status of your enrollment into the courses that you downloaded in the Offline Content area is checked, and if a course expired or if you are no longer enrolled into a course, the course or the learning objects included in that course are removed from the Offline Content page and deleted by the local storage. In this way, the content in the Offline Content page is always aligned with the status of your enrollments, and only courses into which you are currently enrolled (or training material included in the courses into which you are currently enrolled) are shown on this page.

Content Management in Your Mobile App

content management in your appIn your Go.Learn app, you can manage certain content that appears on some pages so you can ensure that the content on your screen is relevant to your learning needs. The Hide or Unhide content functionality enables you to hide content in which you are not interested, so you can view only the content that is most valuable to you in your Go.Learn app. Additionally, the Mark Content as Outdated functionality enables you to mark content as outdated if you consider it old and no longer valuable to your learning experience. In this way, the quality of content published in the platform will improve and the overall content displayed in your platform will be enhanced.

These two functionalities are available both in the desktop version of your platform and in your Go.Learn mobile app. Refer to this article to learn about hiding and unhiding content, and this article to learn more about how to mark content as outdated in your platform.

Please note that the two functionalities work in the same way in the desktop platform and in your Go.Learn mobile app, except for the following minor differences:

  • Once applied filters to show hidden content, in your mobile app you can recognize hidden items from the hidden badge on the item’s card, while in the desktop platform you can recognize them from the barred eye icon on the item’s card.
  • In your mobile app, you can recognize items which are marked as outdated from the outdated badge on the item’s card, while in the desktop platform you can recognize them from the flag icon on the item’s card. From your desktop platform, you can see how many users have marked a content as outdated by hovering your mouse over the flag icon.
  • If an asset that you uploaded in your My Channel page has been marked as outdated by another user, you will receive a notification in the desktop version of your platform, but not on your mobile app. Refer to the Notifications for your Outdated Content section in this article for further information about the notifications that you will receive.
