  • Today’s webinar is sponsored by Lambda Solutions
  • Our presenters today, are Lori Davies, Technical Solutions Consultant from Totara, and myself, Jim Yupangco, VP of Customer Experience from Lambda Solutions.
  • In today’s webinar we will briefly introduce you to Lambda Solutions talk to you about Totara LMS and more specifically on the features that make Totara an ideal cost-effective workplace LMS for your organization Lori will provide us with an high-level tour/demo of these features we will also briefly talk about the positive impact Totara has your overall training budget finally we’d like to show you what’s in store in the upcoming release of Totara.
  • Lambda Solutions is Moodle Partner as well as a Totara Solutions Partner. We have been working with Moodle since 2003.We continue to contribute to the Moodle community through our monthly HOW TO webinars.We offer services in and around Moodle and Totara, such as Managed Hosting, Application Support, and custom development and integration with other systems like HR and information management systems.
  • These are just some of our clients in the healthcare, corporate, government, and academic organizations
  • A distribution is a ready-made extended version of a standard product with its own particular focus and vision.Totara is an LMS specifically focused on the requirements of corporate, industry and vocational training in contrast to a standard release of Moodle which is focused on learning management systems for the academic setting.
  • Totara is a Moodle distribution focused on corporate learning, the features of which are built upon the best practices learned from the needs of other organizations.
  • This is just a birds eye view of some of the features Totara offers to support corporate organizational learning. These features focus on three key domains for competency-based learning: hierarchies, user management, and accreditation.Hierarchies are the fundamental building blocks for aligning an organization and its position framework with the required competencies and skill sets. Totara allows you to build custom frameworks that fit your organization.In virtue of the frameworks that have been established in the hierarchies, users can then be managed into teams and “audiences”. By audience we mean site-wide groups that can be automatically assigned to courses or groups of courses or course programs.Totara supports accreditation and compliance through badges or “digital artifacts of recognition” for courses or competencies achieved. Of course just like Moodle Totara is also able to issue PDF certificates for courses completed. For compliance purposes, especially for recurring or cyclic scheduled courses or programs Totara has a Program Management feature that allows you to establish repeatable cycles of course releases and notification.
  • Before we move into Lori’s demo of the features that make Totara an ideal workplace competency-based learning LMS, I just want to show you some of the front pages and themes that have been developed for Totara.
  • Our key features demo will cover the following:
  • Open Source provides flexibility in design, and facilitates customization and integration with other systems.The fact that Totara is License free makes it affordable to serve very large communities and to maintain multiple internal and external Learning PortalsPre-hire assessmentUse and external Totara portal for pre-hire assessment Organizational HierarchiesOnboardingLearning Plans, IndividualLearning Paths, and Competency based learning make it easy to roll out personalized onboarding programs Competency based learningCompetencies and skill profiles can be loaded and synchronized with other systemsCommunities of practiceInformal workplace and social learning helps people serve external communities while sharing one Content Management SystemRepositories and external content access
