Totara releases LMS 2.2
As well as all the features of Moodle 2.2, the launch of Totara 2.2 also includes Totara Sync, which more easily enables integrations with 3rd party systems such as Peoplesoft, SAP or other HRIS. It enables the synchronization of user, position and organisation hierarchies between Totara and an external source.
New collaborative innovations also include Audience Management, which enables administrators to define groups of users on the basis of rule and rule-set combinations in order to manage course and program enrolments. This functionality is particularly important for larger enterprise clients.
Richard Wyles, CEO of Totara Learning Solutions said, “Collaboration and the distribution model are really important elements to get open source technologies into new market spaces. Rather than needing to take a ‘software development kit’ approach with the general product and sell to corporates on the potential of Moodle if customized, it is much easier to present the Totara distro, which is already designed and pre-configured for the enterprise. For this reason, Totara is a game-changing LMS for the corporate sector, comprising a rich feature-set and commercial grade support but with all of the benefits and freedom open source brings to play. We’re very excited to be developing on the 2.x framework, as it provides the foundations for a new wave of innovations, and further collaboration opportunities with our clients and the wider Moodle community.”
