Create dynamic content

Learning doesn’t have to be a linear journey. With thirst.io you can craft personalised learning journeys designed to support and engage your learners.

Allow students to work their way through your course, carving their own path and unlocking hidden content. Assess your learners’ progression by setting essential tasks which require completion before they can move ahead.

Mobile-friendly design and delivery

All eLearning content built within thirst.io is automatically mobile-friendly, so whatever device your learner is accessing Totara on, your thirst.io content will still look great.

thirst.io works on a grid layout, so your content automatically stacks on a mobile device. You even switch to mobile-view as you edit so you can build your course in mobile view.

Team friendly

Built with teams in mind, thirst.io allows you to allocate ‘seats’ to other members of your organisation and give them different roles and permissions.

Teams can share projects, resources, and themes. This can save time when it comes to collaborating and gaining approval from stakeholders, knowing everyone can access the most up to date version in one place.

Create customised themes

thirst.io also allows you to create and save customised themes, perfect for multi-tenancy platforms which require different branding for different customers. These themes can be shared with others in your organisation, which means you can achieve brand consistency every time, and avoid duplicating work across the team.

If you need to change the branding of a course, simply edit the theme and your course will be automatically updated, including live activities within Totara.
