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.

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.

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.

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
