What do we like best about Totara Learn here at Team Chambury?
It's Flexibility; we can 'bend' Totara to meet our customer needs. Its open source and our developers can manipulate the code to make it truly reflect local needs.
It's Highly Configurable; there are so many configuration options we can make the LMS work exactly as our customers want stying within core functionality.
It's identity; the LMS can be made to look exactly like the customers website, reflect local branding and truly enable their staff to not raise they are in another system, This makes user engagement so much higher and easier.
It's Integration capabilities; linking to other internal systems providing single authentication from any device anywhere. Linking to HR systems to update user data and management hierarchies as often as required. We can also send data to external systems.
It's Online course building tools; you don't need fancy expensive authoring tools, Totara's core activity builder allows you to create interactive attractive content easily without any authoring experience. Yes you can upload or link to SCORM objects, but its not necessary.
It's Cost Effective; our customers don't like huge invoices that they would get with proprietary systems. It fits with public sector budgets.
It works on any device. Anywhere.
It's support. Even though it's open source there is a fully dedicated development team and technical support meaning that if, and I say if we get any issues, they are fixed, tested and released very quick. We get bug, security and new feature patches every month and a major upgrade every year - in 2018 we are getting two .!
Increased Compliance. All our customer are celebrating and enjoying compliance in excess of 94%
User engagement. Staff who work for our customer love Totara. Over 90% log in every few weeks.
Professional development opportunities. We can manage CPD and revalidation processes in Totara. Professionals love it. It makes the LMS belong them to them and not just a tool to do the day to day training on.
Cost savings. We have case studies to prove how much time and therefore money it saves our customers. Staff complete training more readily and it automates most training admin tasks (it cant set up a room though!)
Accessibility. So simple. So easy.
