Employees often say that income is just one of the factors that inspires them to stay motivated and productive at work. What matters more is some of the other elements that contribute to the feeling of satisfaction with their roles. Since we know that job satisfaction and motivation are closely related, the fastest lane to increased contentment and improved efficiency is keeping your employees’ motivation as high as possible.

You decided to immerse your learners in the online world? That’s great! The internet is an endless source of knowledge that you’ll finally start using productively. However, it’s also a source of distractions, and social media websites are considered by many to be the greatest distractions ever.

We live in an era where the popularity of digital solutions is increasing in almost every domain of activity. Everything is changing, and that is because of the fast-paced development of technology. In every field, you can now find digital software, professional tools, and innovative solutions for almost every possible problem.
It’s very easy to assume that everyone who works in L&D knows all about the tools available to them. But in fact, many people are brand new to the idea of technology-enabled learning, as their organisations may still be tied to the face-to-face training approach. That’s why we’re getting back to basics in this post to answer the question, “What does LMS mean?”
Customers often ask us about the simplicity of translating their Totara LMS interface into multiple languages. It’s really easy! Due to accelerating global demand for our LMS, we have released it in 25 languages, with more to come.
Totara LMS is available in English by default. Translation work has started on 25 language packs for Totara LMS 9, 21 of which have more than 80% language strings translated. You can view the available languages below.
There are a lot of myths surrounding open source, and over the years we've heard them all. In this post, we address some of the most common misconceptions people have about open source software, and explain why some of the world's largest and most trusted organisations opt for open source solutions.
The world doesn’t stand still. Every day there are new industry developments, research reports, case studies, product launches and articles. One of the big challenges we face is providing our learners with new and updated content to this external content as part of the continuous learning process. There’s too much content, too little time. It’s not practical to update your e-learning and blended courses every day.
One of the key benefits of using Totara LMS is that it’s open source, so as a customer you can extend the platform to make it do exactly what you need. Rather than having to rework your company’s processes around the LMS, the LMS can be shaped to fit your requirements. And the great news is that with Totara LMS 9, we've taken one of the key benefits of Totara LMS and made it even better.
