Last week we were lucky enough to be a part of the unveiling of the GoPro Developer Program For the last year, a handful of developers like BMW, Fisher-Price, Periscope, and EVALS, have been creating solutions that integrate with GoPro cameras. It is a brilliant move by GoPro to solidify their control over the wearable camera market, and also widen their user base from extreme sports enthusiasts.

It is a huge step forward in teaching specialized and complex, critical psychomotor skills. Both the first-person perspective, and the wide angle of the GoPro camera, give students the ultimate view of what success looks like from the professional example, and also gives them crucial feedback on their own performance, which is necessary to improve their skill execution.

 

EVALS’ Digital Evaluations that connect to a GoPro, allow educators and evaluators to control GoPro cameras from within the EVALS APP, and to upload these videos directly into the cloud-based, Digital Evaluation for self-reflection and/or formative evaluation of the learner. 

 

“The GoPro Developer Program was designed to enable companies to create new and important ways for our collective customers to use a GoPro. We are excited to see GoPro used to help train the public service professionals that make our communities safer.”

- Adam Silver, director of strategic product partnerships at GoPro
