Totara LMS version 1.1 is now available
corporate development, Open Source, Totara
This first major feature release since 1.0 includes a wide range of new features and system enhancements. The Program Management feature is a major new innovation advance enabling administrators to build structured programs from the catalogue and assign learning for divisions of personnel or the entire organisation en masse. Organisations now have user friendly management tools to set up training programs set for individuals, job roles or business units within an organisation. This is especially relevant for mandatory training and also allows administrators to automate a large part of the assignment process.
Version 1.1 also includes significant enhancements to Learning Plans, the Report Builder, and administrative features designed to make this popular platform meet the needs of corporate enterprises.
Sven Laux, Product Director at Totara Learning Solutions commented: "We’re very pleased with the mix of exciting new features and enhancements to current features. A big thank-you goes to Tesco. We worked closely with them on designing and developing the program management feature, to ensure it met their specific requirements and the wider community of users.”
Totara's CEO Richard Wyles commented: "Totara is a commercial open source company with collaboration being a key part of our business ethos. I think one of the most exciting aspects of the version 1.1 release, is how we’re paving the way for a more economically sustainable and innovative way of developing and supporting best-of-breed learning software. It is great to see so many businesses now understanding benefits of well designed, and supported open source software.”
