In the run up to our unmissable 'Success with eLearning' seminar on 7th June, we will be featuring information on our speakers and their background, as well as a snippet into what they will be talking about at the event, and why you won't want to miss it!
This week, we would like to introduce Andy Kirk from Totara HQ.
About Andy and Totara:

Totara LMS is a distribution of Moodle developed with the enterprise in mind. Totara LMS gives you powerful tools to manage and facilitate learning online.
Totara LMS maps to your organisation’s structure, so that learning can be automatically allocated based on a range of organisational and system criteria. Learning can be specific courses, programmes of required learning – with recurring certifications if required. Totara LMS is much more than a course management system: performance management through flexible appraisals, learning plans, self-service face to face course booking and great reporting!
"Open Source success: Stories from Totara Learning"
Ever worked in an organisation where the LMS was underused, under supported, under loved and generally unsuccessful? This doesn’t have to be the case.
With the correct planning (and a flexible and adaptable open source product) you can not only roll out a LMS which will meet your immediate business objectives but can grow to meet your future, maybe as yet unknown, needs.
This session will share some of the best practice involved in a staged roll out of a feature rich enterprise level LMS such as Totara LMS.
Highlighting a range of examples from the Totara community, spanning; retail, hospitality, healthcare, finance, local government you will find out how organisations across have utilised a commercial open source model to achieve and exceed their own measures for success, including staff retention, improved efficiencies, cost savings and have also been able to ‘future proof’ their learning.
