EDUCATION

TRAVIS GO enables you to easily create a lesson based on an audiovisual media product (such as a movie clip, music video, or commercial) on your laptop or tablet. You can design work tasks and exercises using existing teaching material or by creating new tasks in TRAVIS GO.

Which didactic requirements does TRAVIS GO meet?


TRAVIS GO was designed in close cooperation with teachers for the use in school education. As crucial requirements, teachers mentioned, for example, simple technical management and use, flexibility in generating tasks for the students, or innovative forms of working with audiovisual media products. These key requirements were implemented into the program structure and workflow of TRAVS GO.
