How Totara Engage helps create a high-performance culture 

Content curation from any channel

Let learners take the lead. Quickly source, curate knowledge from subject matter experts in the form of articles, blogs, photos, podcasts and even videos to develop personalised learning paths. The learning journey becomes smooth, and learners are more motivated to learn.

Social and microlearning

Facilitate peer-to-peer interactions like ratings, comments and curation to build a vibrant, connected learning culture. Content that is accessed quickly, with just in time training providing specific learning outcomes. Widely available on any device and designed in media rich formats.

Content recommendation

Identify and suggest content relevant to your employees’ interests, skills and needs with a robust recommendation engine. Content curation is effective when you share the resources with the right group of learners, just when they are searching for the information, and on channels that they can readily access.

Gain insights from surveys

Collect valuable feedback from your teams with easy to create, customisable surveys. Helps management understand the health of their company culture and how employees perceive the organisation.

Efficient administration in complicated hierarchies

Flexible sharing, visibility and access settings leveraging the hierarchies inherent in Totara simplify the administration and delivery of content. Specific content may be targeted (or restricted) directly to users/groups/organisations within your Totara hierarchy structure.

Track employee engagement

Spot rising talent, subject matter experts and thought leaders, as well as less-engaged staff, with in-depth user and content engagement reports. Maintain a positive work flow and take action when it matters, create an environment where employees feel engaged and their performance is valued.
