Totara Social

Totara Social

Totara Social is an open source Enterprise Social Network (ESN) designed to manage and connect your people to the knowledge and resources within your organisation.

Social learning and networking is essential for collaborative working in the internet age. While public social networks have become part of our daily lives, the co-creation of content, communication, sharing of ideas, resources and company policies needs secure spaces for your organisation or extended enterprise. You should own your data and set your own policies for its usage!

Totara Social opens the flow of knowledge and is a catalyst for collaboration throughout your organisation. Social learning is about conversation and collaboration. It is centred on individuals coming together often in unstructured ways – sharing and creating new information, bouncing ideas around, asking questions and finding out what’s really happening.

Use Totara Social as your Enterprise Social Network to become more adaptable, to learn, share information and innovate at speed. Complement the organising power of the LMS with Totara Social – fun, social, effective!

Create, Remix and Share

Create content, add web pages, use your favourite tools and embed external media, pull in Google Apps, add recent blog or forum posts, videos and more. Mix and mash with drag and drop. Share - you decide where. Spin off a copy and remix for a different audience.

Social Networking

Break the silos with Connections and Groups. Stay connected without the noise. You control what’s included. Choose the right level of notifications to receive and select the contributions, people, and tags that interest you. Use Group based feeds to ensure focused up-to-date information. 

Engage with Comments, Forums, Chat

Add Comments to content, pages and feeds. Join Discussion Forums or use individual or group based Chat.


Work “out loud” virtually. Create separate blogs for projects or groups. Use the WYSIWYG editor, embed images, add files and choose whether to accept comments. Share posts or whole blogs with your connections or Groups. 




Share Ideas, work on them together

Propose ideas, add descriptions, tags and files. Choose where to share, everyone, individual connections or one or more groups. Or develop your idea further in private. Vote on ideas and add comments. Include your ideas when mixing pages to share.

Build and Share Knowledge - Ask Questions

Ask a question. Define who it goes to – get a list of answers. Answers can be sorted by most recent or “like” votes on the answer. The Question owner can mark any answer as the best answer as well as change their best answer choice at any time.  And the Answer authors can edit/delete answers – the status of the Question will open again. Searchable, shareable, powerful.

Skills Profiler

Create talent pools, a digital resumé or an extended profile with a range of flexible fields. Share one or more fields when creating a page to share.
