Arlo x Mimeo: Seamless course management & content delivery 

There are many things that make a course successful but there’s one that stands at the forefront of great learning: the content.

Ensuring your digital content is accessible, secure and readily available across a multitude of platforms and devices is a challenging yet important task. And today, we’re excited to announce our latest collaboration with Mimeo Digital, designed to help you do just that. 

Together, Arlo and Mimeo simplify the lives of training providers by streamlining administrative tasks and enhancing content delivery. Mimeo Digital provides content hosting, accessibility, and security. Paired with Arlo, you can manage registrations and automate content delivery for a seamless learner experience.

Introducing Mimeo Digital

Since revolutionizing the print space 20+ years ago, they have stayed in lock-step with what you need to get training content in front of your learners with their latest offering, Mimeo Digital.

Mimeo Digital is a simple yet powerful content distribution platform packed with features that enable the delivery of content in a safe, secure and accessible way. With Mimeo Digital you can:

  • Save, store, and update training materials in almost any format (PDF, MS Office, Video, Audio, SCORM and more)
  • Manage access to content before, during, and after courses, as well as making it available offline
  • Protect your content, with restricted printing, downloads, watermarking, and expiration dates
  • Increase audience participation and engagement with detailed notes, comments, and annotations. 
  • Access content analytics in a modern dashboard, as well as detailed breakdowns into content and student engagement per course or session
  • Free 24/7 live support for your students to ensure access to content and remove the burden on instructors 

Three common use cases: Before, during and after a course 

Here are three common scenarios of using Arlo and Mimeo Digital together, demonstrating how you can deliver content seamlessly before, during, and after a course to create modern, engaging, and blended learning experiences for your students.

1. Pre-course materials

Make sure your students are prepared by automatically sending them an introduction video as part of the registration workflow. 

Simply load the video in Mimeo, create access keys for students, and add them to your Arlo automated email sequences. With Mimeo Digital you can control who can access your content, and for how long, as well as seeing who opens and engages with the content.

2. Engaging workbook experience

Give you students access to your course workbook and ensure they are always looking at the latest version. 

This is great for interactive and multi-session courses where the instructor updates the workbook as the course progresses. Students can also add notes, comments and annotations in real-time to increase engagement and peer learning. Everyone has their own login, helping you to manage access and monitor interactions. 

To set this up, simply schedule an automated email before the course starts that includes a link to the workbook along with any other additional instructions.

3. Resources for knowledge reinforcement

After the course is completed, send your class the key takeaways and/or guide that they can use to apply their learnings in the real world/outside of the classroom. 

Arlo provides a full list of course attendees making it simple to select a list and send a one off follow-up email that will include key takeaways, and next steps for your students. Your content will be protected with built-in copyright coloring and branding that automatically applies when you make it available.

Bonus: Powerful insights into content performance 
Once your course has completed, jump into Mimeo Digital and get an entire breakdown of content activity. See what content had the most views, opens or clicks by individual student, providing a comprehensive view into engagement and student performance, aiding you to make calculated improvements to the material you provide.
