This is Community. With DevLearn 2018 taking place on 24th-26th October 2018 at the Mirage, Las Vegas, the Totara Learning team is showcasing what Community really means. For the first time ever Totara Learning will be showcasing the free, online Totara Community within the Totara Village, at stand 516.

Currently, there are thousands of learning professionals within the Totara Community who are sharing knowledge, best practice and their learning technologies success stories every day. The Totara Community welcomes Totara Learn subscribers and non-subscribers alike, giving members dedicated space to connect with and talk to others in the industry to share challenges and learn from others who may hold the answers to learning and development questions.

As part of the larger Community, Totara Academy also offers free courses for members. The courses in Totara Academy are designed to help users increase their skills, and help Totara subscribers get the most out of Totara Learn’s functionality. These blended learning resources cover topics such as seminar management, theming and learning plans, and include demonstration videos, system simulations and best practice advice from Totara experts.

The Totara Community was originally established to support the specific needs of those using Totara products. However, having grown to include over 7000 learning professionals from around the globe and in organisations of all sizes and sectors, it has become a powerful place to share and establish best practices, particularly in the successful application of learning technology in the workplace. Learning technology has never been more important to the strategic needs of organisations as they grapple with the rapid and uncertain pace of change they face, no matter which market or region they operate within, and yet, many learning professionals lack access to the expertise, skills, and direction needed to harness technology effectively.

Lars Hyland, Chief Learning Officer of Totara Learning explains: 

“The Totara Community is a place for all learning professionals to learn and develop their own craft. It’s open to anyone who has a strong desire to support their learners with powerful, engaging learning experiences - come and join us.”

DevLearn 2018 is unlike any other L&D conference.  The open and collaborative nature of L&D professionals really comes to the fore every year in Las Vegas. There is a genuine sense of camaraderie within the delegation. With an event that is already geared towards preserving and uplifting the global community of L&D professionals, it’s no wonder that Totara Learning is showcasing the Totara Community to the delegation at DevLearn 2018.
