GoToTraining

Online classroom and desktop sharing solution for trainers

About GoToTraining

GoToTraining is a web-based training solution, sitting alongside related online apps in the GoTo suite, GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar. Catering for both remote and hybrid learning scenarios, the product offers users of all levels an emphasis on engaging session attendees with collaboration features powered by exclusive technology. Hybrid instructor-lead training includes integrated YouTube and Vimeo video sharing alongside the ability to show remote learners a live, real-time image of the class whiteboard. Quickly conduct, quizzes, tests and polls to keep students on their toes and gauge performance or capture feedback. Built-in video conferencing, hand raising and chat tools all help to keep participants connected, while the useful breakout session feature allows smaller class groups to seamlessly splinter off and rejoin the proceedings later.

For trainers GoToTraining also simplifies session administration by handling equally important pre and post-class activities. Full-service registration provides secure capture of attendee information with expanded fields and custom questions, while managing payments or refunds via PayPal integration. Promote sessions and encourage participation by sending out email or social media invitations, going on to mail out certifications to successful students after the event. Classes can also be recorded effortlessly and distributed while flexible reporting and analytics put valuable data within reach. Keep track of the numbers on registration conversions, take roll calls and log attendance before breaking down test, poll and evaluation results.

GoToTraining also provides free companion iOS and Android apps for enabling optimized mobile access to training sessions while on the move.

    It allows us to run trainings between multiple geographically distinct locations in an easy and efficient way. It also allows us to test for knowledge absorption and offer classes to other locations and departments through the use of it's class catalogue feature.

    Pros

    I love that this allows me to schedule out classes in advance. It also allows me to easily create and administer tests, share supporting documentation, and make sure people are paying attention. In this type of learning environment between remote offices it's essential that the performance of the application is spotless when it comes to audio and video and for the vast majority of trainings I've run GTT has been amazing.

    Cons

    I have 2 major complaints. 1st there is a bug in the software that has been there for over two years at this point that prevents me from using the quiz functionality as intended. Customer support took over 6 months to figure out this bug even though I suggested that it might be the problem on the first interaction. 2nd there is no way to mass export all of your classes to Google Calendar. I figured out a way to do a work around using apple calendar and then exporting that cal to google cal but it's a huge pain still.

    I am loving this way of going to class and will use this in the future for my second job when training people

    Pros

    With the atmosphere of today's society remote or virtual work is great. This software make it safe and easy to attend training classes. The page or app gives you the opportunity to not only interact with your trainers but with other classmates in attendance. you can also use the chat feature to communicate. I like the option of being able to control who sees you on camera as well and the microphone feature.

    Cons

    when the trainers use the screen share feature, it is not possible to make the screen larger making it sometimes hard to see the material. Also when sharing your screen it limits the number of camera feeds you can see making the trainers have to rotate cameras

    In a word, pathetic.

    Lack of integrity, over all.

    Given false info by sales to sell me.
    Product didn’t work as promised.
    Support was not what it was promised To be.

    Support ignorant of the product.
    Failure to be accountable for problems
    Always blaming others for product failure: it’s a PayPal problem, it’s a safari problem, etc.

    Promises NEVER kept by support. “I’ll have a supervisor call you back” never happened.

    Woeful incompetence at everything EXCEPT monthly billing. There was never a problem with that.

    No problem taking my money for a product that failed to deliver on sales’ promises and support promises.

    Pros

    Scheduling
    Client data collection

    Efficient and effective monthly billing

    support always answered the phone, (even though they were too ignorant of the product too help,)

    Supervisors form support always promised to get back to me. (Even though they never did,)

    Cons

    Bugs
    Features that don’t work
    Long list

    Using this product cost me about 25% of every event I’ve done that invoked payment.

    Zero accountability.

    Pros

    We really like all the opportunity that this software has - breakout rooms, library, scheduling.

    Cons

    It's not easy to learn. We have had to teach ourselves which is probably why we don't know how to use all the features correctly. That being said, we have had no contact with customer support other than them sending me a huge binder of materials to figure things out on my own.

    Good product when you know what you're doing

    Reviewed on 2017/11/21

    Pros

    Has all I need to host a training or webinar, and gain insight into questions/attendees afterwards. It allows me to review questions that were asked and ensure that my attendees got what they came for.

    Cons

    Lots of features, before becoming familiar with it I sometimes don't know how to do what I need to. After using it for some time, I know exactly what I can do and how to do it.
