    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.

    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.

    Reviewed on 13/07/2018

    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.

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    BRIDGE and Litmos

    Reasons for Choosing 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

    Reasons for Switching to Totara Learn

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

    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.

    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
