As part of this partnership, GO1’s content marketplace will be accessible via Totara’s open source learning management system, Totara Learn, which is currently used by over 1,400 organisations. This will give over 10 million users around the world access to GO1’s catalogue of over 150,000 compliance and professional development training courses that cater to almost every training need.
GO1, which was named one of the world’s most disruptive startups in 2016, was founded in Queensland, Australia, and is run from offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Ho Chi Minh, Kuala Lumpur, London, San Francisco and Cape Town.
This is a highly beneficial strategic partnership for both partners, with Totara Learn users benefitting from access to GO1’s rich content catalogue through the LMS itself, and GO1 gaining access to Totara’s growing user-base, which includes organisations such as Sony, Kmart, Samsung, Toyota/Lexus and many more.
As well as this, Totara Learn customers will benefit from the fact that GO1’s content is updated automatically by its expert course authors, which will save hundreds of hours a month in learning administration time. Users are automatically notified when updates become available, ensuring they stay compliant and up to date with their sector’s regulations.
Richard Wyles, CEO of Totara Learning, said: “We see this partnership as an immense value-add to Totara users. Our partnership with GO1 now makes it easier and more convenient to access a large library of e-learning content that can be curated to the specific needs of your workforce, or your business outcomes, all through our Totara Learn platform.”
Andrew Barnes, CEO of GO1, said: “The decision to partner with Totara was an obvious one for us that will propel our vision to be the world’s number one source for professional training. Our missions are similar - to help individuals and companies learn and enhance their skills, whether for compliance or personal development goals.”
