Excellent tool for education and online training

Pros

I have tried this platform and I think it is very complete, since it allows you to educate other people individually and train both employees and clients, very good

Cons

Despite being very good, its interface is not competitive with other platforms, they have to develop a better interface because this platform has potential

Totara works for us

Really happy with the supplier support and the way the software keeps evolving

Pros

The product is easy to implement - it is fairly intuitive for the learner and easy to brand and upkeep as an administrator.

Cons

The moodle base means you have to be careful about retakes - it only records the first one - so if you need certifications updating then plan ahead

Reasons for choosing Totara Learn

Cost was a factor - cheaper - plus a organisation wish to go moodle based.

Reasons for switching to Totara Learn

Useability and uptake

Response from Totara

Hi Steve, thank you for the amazing review! Glad to hear that it was easy to implement and that you're happy with the support from your Totara Partner. We have lots of stuff coming up on our roadmap so stay tuned :)

July 2018

Our company implemented Totara through a third party reseller. We migrated from Moodle.

Pros

It is hosted off-site so we don't need to rely on our small Systems team. This is really the true value to me as an LMS administrator as previously it was impossible to upgrade our Moodle versions. Navigating to the courses is very simple. The look and feel is decent. So far it's been pretty stable.

Cons

I would like to see more features that are not already available in the free Moodle LMS system. I would like to see the Reporting features better implemented. I would also like to see support for plug-ins that are currently supported in free Moodle, particularly H5P.

Totara Learn

Pros

We find Totara Learn to be incredibly versatile and we're always finding new ways to use its features.

Cons

You can configure just about everything in Totara, which we found a little overwhelming at first. But once you've set things up and gained a bit of experience, it's fairly straightforward to use.

From Learnforce to Totara and beyond

We have been using Totara Learn for past 2 years (almost). We love it even more because of the exceptional customer support by our vendor Kineo. Since we moved from Learnforce LMS, which had a completely different interface, some ulearners find it difficult but LMS admins love the flexibility now they have to configure even things like custom fields etc.

Pros

The flexibility that an admin has in configuring this software.

Cons

Inconsistency in different reports. e.g. SCORM reports are filtered differently where as other USer reports are filtered differently.

Reasons for choosing Totara Learn

We chose totara by going through an extensive Tender process. Totara Learn fulfilled most of our functional/non-functional requirements.

Reasons for switching to Totara Learn

- Lack of configurability for Admins in Learnforce - Needed one platform for Face to face and eLearning courses, which learnforce didn't have. - Lack of accessibility for user reports

Response from Totara

Hi Sahar, thanks for the lovely review! Our partner Kineo will be delighted to hear that. I'll pass on your feedback about the user reports. Glad to hear your LMS admins enjoy the flexibility of the platform.
