    Pros
    Overall, I'm satisfied with the product and we definitely recommend it to all our prospective and existing clients that fit the need.
    The customer service has been fantastic and they have gone out of their way to problem solve on issues that have arisen during our setup. Highly recommended Totara LMS.
    It is still a great tool, that can though still be adjusted to whatever someone likes it to be.
    Cons
    Some notifications are hard coded , which prevent us from customizing them.
    Usability very low because of too complex site-structure and permission management. Design very simple and overloaded with blocks, nobody knows what they are for in the first place.
    Need some technical skills to fully exploit it. It can be hard at first but once it's up and running it will give you all the tools you need to manage learning.

    Totara LMS for small organizations

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    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.

    Totara works for us

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    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

    Vendor response

    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 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

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    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.

    Vendor response

    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.

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    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

    Vendor response
