Citrix GoView, which debuted at DEMO 09, is an easy-to-use Web-based service for recording browsing sessions and application training, and then sharing those recordings with colleagues and clients. The GoView beta has many shortcomings, not the least of which is that it is Windows-only when it comes to making recordings and is lacking in capabilities such as decent editing tools. But GoView has a lot of potential for those needing training and demo videos useful for walking employees and clients through processes and new applications, but not needing the complexity and price of traditional applications in these areas, such as Adobe Captivate. Currently GoView, which is in a closed beta, is free to use.
