Totara LMS

Totara LMS is an open source platform co-developed originally by Kineo UK, Kineo Pacific and Catalyst IT. We collaborated to create what we believe is a game-changer in the LMS market. It’s built on Moodle, the world’s most popular LMS – with a comprehensive and growing set of features for business.

Now used by over 800 businesses globally, including Samsung, Sony Europe, easyJet and The Football Association, Totara LMS is a leading global LMS and learning portal solution.

Benefits of Totara

Value for money

If you already have a proprietary LMS the chances are you think you’re paying too much. We agree. Totara is an open source LMS and there are no per user licence fees.

Totara offers the key features and robustness you expect from an enterprise LMS, and some further innovations besides.

We believe Totara is up to 80% more cost-effective than other LMSs because we have extended the open source Moodle platform to be specifically aligned to the needs of workplace learning.

  • Align competency structures to job roles and learning resources and courses
