Goodbye Totara LMS 9, hello Totara Learn 10. Our friends at Totara Learning Solutions have just released the latest version of their learning management software.
Totara Learn 10 is the first release to use the new Totara Learn product name, recently introduced to replace the previous Totara LMS name and address the new, broader remit of today’s learning platforms.
Going forward, all versions of the learning management system will be called Totara Learn, better reflecting Totara’s commitment to giving organisations worldwide the freedom to learn without the constraints of a traditional LMS.
Here’s a quick run down on the main new features which come shipped with Totara Learn 10:

Create custom graphic-based navigation across the site using your own uploaded images.

- Instant learning access for self-registered users
Learners are added to dynamic audiences as soon as they register on the site, allowing them access to all assigned courses, programs and certifications.

Course completion progress bars now represent the number of tracked course activities a learner has completed.
- Course completion editor
Activity and course completions can now be edited directly within a new dedicated course administration interface.

Allows you to quickly restore accidentally deleted courses or activities.
Iain Napier, Totara Product Manager, said:
We are very pleased to announce the 10th major version of Totara. We have a bunch of new features that will benefit partners and subscribers alike. Totara Learn 10 includes 150 improvements over and above useful improvements from Moodle 3.1 and 3.2. Some are large and visible, others are focused on improving the platform under the covers.
