Totara LMS for small organizations

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Very positive - it was a first LMS for our company and the set up and implementation were smooth. Users did not have much difficulty using this (construction workers) and it has been easy to maintain.

Pros:

I liked the ability to customize and make the system work for our needs. We were able to work with our vendor to add some functionality to fit our business.

Cons:

From an admin role it helps to be a little techie/geeky. But the support from our vendor really helped get through that.

Comments: 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

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

3.0 6 years ago

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.

From Learnforce to Totara and beyond

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: 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.

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.

Great but lacking some aspects.

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: We love it. Our clients hate it. They find it difficult to navigate and over complex.

Pros:

Payment gateway for access to courses is a major challenge. The use of HR import and a Wordpress shop make for a clumsy integration.

Cons:

Better certificate issue and management for different instructor groups
