• imageGogy allows you to organize groups of presentations by channels. The channels can be defined by topics, categories or classes. For example, an everyday user could group all the presentations they want to share on their blog in a channel called “blog presentations.” An educator may want to group all the presentations they use for a particular class they teach on astronomy in a channel called “Astronomy 101.” By grouping presentations into channels, the user can administer and set permissions to the presentations within one channel while allowing for a different set of permissions in another channel. Channels make it easier for you to share your presentations with others in the way you want them to be shared!

  • imageGogy currently allows you to share your channels with a limited set of users. This functionality helps you to restrict the content of the presentations to those who you want to view it. You can always add more members to a particular channel or delete users you no longer want interacting with the presentations. Gogy will soon be able to support public presentations which can be both searchable and viewable by all. You will still be able to restrict access to commenting and bookmarking, but by making the channels public, the subscribers to your channel can freely share your content to others in their social networks and beyond!
  • imageWithin a particular channel, you can have a number of presentations. These presentations are shared with a community of subscribers that you have defined. It is easy to navigate to the presentation and even the exact slide that you want from the presentations view of the user dashboard. You can add and delete presentations within a channel as well as describe what the objective or overall theme of a particular presentation is. Gogy makes keeping your presentations clean and organized as well as making them social and interactive!
  • imageAt the heart of Gogy’s usefulness is its ability to let channel owners and their subscribers interact with one another on a slide-by-slide basis. Most presentations, even those given in person, are one way avenues for content dumping. Gogy changes all of that by creating a way to capture comments, questions, and interactions to specific content on a slide-by-slide basis. In this way, subscribers to a channels can interact, ask questions or comment on the specific slide they are interested in instead of doing so generally about the presentation as a whole. For the channel owners/presenters, it allows you to see where the greatest number of question/interactions are for a particular presentation and refine the presentation accordingly in future iterations of it.
  • imageGogy allows the subscribers to a channel to take personal notes on a slide-by-slide basis very similar to the commenting feature. Whereas the commenting is public to the other users the channel is shared with, the personal notes an individual takes on a particular slide are only visible to the user themselves. Not even the channel owner has access to these personal notes. This is a great way for students to retain access to their own thoughts on the presentation material while still having the ability to interact publicly on other thoughts in the commenting section.
  • imageGogy allows the presenter the opportunity to comment on each slide in the same way that an end user can keep their personal notes. The difference is that the presenter’s notes are public displayed to all channel subscribers. In this way, the presenter can add descriptions, instructions and/or interpretations of the content displayed on the slide to help the users capture the essence of the message being conveyed more effectively.
  • imageGogy currently allows users to comment on the content of a slide within a presentation. This feature can be used to carry out a dialogue on a particular subject framed by the slides and presentations around it. Unlike other educational technologies, users retain access not only to the content of the presentations, but also the conversations that occur around that content. In this way, Gogy enables the users to engage in participatory learning instead of passive listening. Soon Gogy will enhance its commenting feature to include threaded discussions, link/file insertions, bookmarking and so much more!
  • imageGogy will allow channel owners and their subscribers (when allowed by the channel owners), the ability to share presentations, slide within the presentations and even the comments surrounding the slides to popular social networks that the users are members of. Along with this functionality will come the ability to sign in using the login information of these popular sites to manage your account at Gogy. We want to make things simple and productive for all of our users and this is just one way we believe we can do that!
  • imageGogy is mobile friendly! We currently have created and tested a mobile site for iPhone users and will be rolling out functionality to Android and other devices shortly. We recognize that in some presentations the audience members are more likely to have access to their smartphones than to their computers. We wanted to make sure everyone could both comment and read other comments and so our mobile site was born! This version of the Gogy application looks and feels like a native application on your device and provides you with all the functionality that you already love about Gogy.
