Moodle is the most widely used learning management system (LMS) in the world with 130 million users and counting! Moodle was built for the educational space and, while it is wonderful at what is does, it sometimes lacks the functionality needed for corporations. This is where Totara Learn really steps up to the plate!

How to find out if your organization needs Moodle or Totara?

Here is the list of things you should consider. Do you have a need for...

  • Programs: sequenced courses with prerequisites
  • Dashboards: multiple dashboards for different audiences, so learners only see what is relevant to them
  • Audience-Based Visibility: courses that can be shown or hidden to different audiences
  • Certifications: initial certification or the need to re-certify in a course or program
  • Team Management: the ability to monitor team's learning and goals


If you answered "yes!" to one or more of these questions, Totara Learn may be a better fit for your organization than Moodle.
