Totara is delighted to welcome Wahoo Learning to its global Totara Partner network.

Leading e-learning managed training service provider, Wahoo Learning, will provide a new take on the delivery of training to external learners.

With over 25 years' experience delivering managed learning services on behalf of leading global organisations, when it came to revamp their learning management system (LMS) Totara Learn was the natural choice.

Wahoo Learning initially worked with Totara Partner BuildEmpire to create their initial Totara Learn platform, which needed to support a wide range of external clients with both client-branded LMS solutions and a Wahoo-branded solution, as well as the ability to purchase e-learning courses. Following the success of the project, Wahoo Learning have now taken the next step and decided to become a Totara Partner in their own right.

"Delivering a successful external training programme comes with its own unique set of challenges, for which traditional internally focused learning management systems are not best placed to solve," said Lloyd Smith, Wahoo Learning MD.

"We needed a solution that offers the advanced feature set expected of a modern-day LMS, but with the flexibility to build in additional features required for the demanding external training market. Totara ticked both these boxes for us."

Aimed primarily at organisations that deliver external training programmes, whether in a large partner network, franchise market, or direct to end customers, Wahoo Learning brings together a unique set of services which allow these programmes to get to market fast and with minimal effort.

James Donovan, Wahoo Learning Enterprise Account Manager, says "The internal and compliance-based training market is well served by many organisations offering services and solutions specific to this demand, but we have found that this is not the case for the external training and we believe this will be a large growth area as companies look to leverage existing customer opportunities through partner and channel programmes."

Totara Learn is one of the leading learning management systems available today, and its open source nature allowed Wahoo Learning to develop a unique set of features that tailor it specifically to the demands of the external training market.

This includes:

  • A catalogue that showcases training
  • Advanced e-commerce platform
  • Customisable discount codes
  • A content management system
  • Tailored organisational structures
  • Advanced reporting
  • Localisation for system and training in over 100 languages

Wahoo Learning will be celebrating their new partnership with Totara and showcasing their LMS and bespoke e-learning content capabilities at Learning Technologies 2020 on 12th-13th February at ExCeL London, where they will be available at stand F65 throughout the show.
