About Totara LMS
A powerful learning management system (LMS) that’s open source – and open for business…
What is Totara LMS? Totara LMS is a distribution of Moodle, developed with the enterprise in mind. It gives you powerful tools to manage and facilitate learning online, right across your business. Totara maps to your organisation’s structure, so learning can be automatically allocated based on a range of organisational and system criteria – specific courses, programmes of required learning, and even recurring certifications if required. But Totara is much more than a course management system; it also offers performance management through flexible appraisals, learning plans, self-service face-to-face course booking and great reporting.
