Excellent product although greater support and more education at implementation would have ensured my project team would have had a greater understanding of the system, including migration of historical data to ensure its structured in the best way .the system is well suited to large organisations where staff work out of multiple sites and multiple devices including mobile devices.

Totara LMS

  • Pretty easy to use and loads plug-ins that can give you some useful functionality - also the fact that everyone who uses Totara LMS can create plug-ins as they come up with new ways of using the LMS makes it a dynamic environment. If you need a piece of functionality, ask around - someone may have developed it already as a plug-in, or you can work with your vendor to create it yourself. It's not expensive to add new plug-ins, although creating them costs a little more, it's well worth it for the end result — lots of support and user groups available to share ideas and learn from.
  • Easy to add your own courses, quizzes, and resources, and easy to add external courses using the integration options.
  • In my experience, you have to bring the reports into Excel to properly analyze the data, so they do need to do a bit more work on reporting.

Cons

Kallidus LMS

  • Simpler hosting of e-learning - scorm objects can be slow AICC seems to be the best solution

Darryn Allcorn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Totara LMS

  • Reporting can be a little inflexible - sometimes, the report cannot be customized to have all the columns you need as they are not available from that area of the LMS.
  • Graphic reporting needs some more work to be a bit more professional looking.

Easy to access both local support and support/advice from other Totara LMS users as we keep in regular contact as a part of the totara government users group. Our vendor also keeps in touch with this group and a lot of knowledge is shared. It's easy to access the Totara LMS users academy, and one of my administrators has also set up a local forum where they ask each other questions and share knowledge as well. Our vendor is easy to access via our support plan and we have monthly catch-ups with our account manager where we hear about anything new coming up.
