thirst.io is the latest addition to Totara’s growing extensions library, offering a powerful, mobile-first authoring tool which allows users to create SCORM content which feeds directly into Totara.

The new plugin, created by Totara Partner BuildEmpire, removes the need to export and upload SCORM files, making it easier than ever before to create content that works seamlessly within the Totara learning management system.

thirst.io brings the editing power of traditional desktop authoring tools into the cloud-based world. Users now have the freedom to create their own dynamic interactions and e-learning content within thirst.io’s intuitive WYSIWYG editor for truly engaging experiences, with the live stream ensuring that everything is updated in real time.

Fred Thompson, CEO and founder of BuildEmpire said: “Most of our clients use Totara Learn, so it seemed the logical next step to build an integration between thirst.io and Totara to make the e-learning development process easier and more efficient.” 

Totara users can add thirst.io to their platforms to craft personalized learning journeys to support and engage learners. The tool also supports the sharing of projects, resources and themes within teams, saving time by ensuring everyone has access to the most up-to-date version of content in one place.

Additionally, Totara users using multi-tenancy platforms will benefit from the ability to create custom themes to achieve brand consistency and create unique learning environments for different audiences.

Totara’s extensions library currently houses a range of plugins, such as the Anders Pink content curation tool, GO1’s content library and the Zoola Analytics tool for enhanced learning analytics and reporting.

For more information, visit BuildEmpire/thirst.io at Learning Technologies 2020 at stand E62. Fred Thompson will also be giving a public demo of thirst.io on day 1, Wednesday 12th February, at 11:00am in Theatre 4.
