    Excellent tool for education and online training

    Reviewed on 25/4/2018

    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

    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

    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 :)

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

    Reviewed on 13/7/2018

    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.

    Great but lacking some aspects.

    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

    Response from Totara

    Rob, thank you for your review of Totara Learn. We're happy to hear that you're enjoying the many adaptable features, functionality and value for money. We're always actively working on improving Totara Learn with every release (and gathering the required research and customer feedback in order to do so), so we really do appreciate your feedback. Speaking of which, we'd kindly suggest ensuring that you're using the latest version of Totara Learn, Totara Learn 13. It features multiple improvements to user experience for your learners and admins. This includes improvements to site accessibility, more streamlined navigation (particularly when viewing learning plans or creating user accounts) and much more.

    Have an application focused on business learning, with tools focused on the corporate area to prepare quality professionals who know the business and its function in the company is optimal.

    Pros

    Totara is one of the most complete learning applications for the business world, noting the great detail that it is free, extremely complete where you can manage face-to-face and non-face-to-face training, evaluate the performance of workers, create reports on the progress of each employee to evaluate their evolution, strengths and devilities and all with a very comfortable interface and all this for a fraction of the cost of a private application, as it is focused on the corporate area its functionalities are focused on the development of complete professionals, to teach them the rules of business and strengthen your company, use it!!!!

    Cons

    Being free may not have the service and attention problems of a proprietary software, this is why you need the support of software specialists for problems that may arise, or solve any inconvenience of the stability of the program.
