Spread knowledge through your organisation with Totara Engage and Synergy Learning

Discover the benefits of introducing technology that makes formal and informal learning a truly social experience for your team.

Totara Engage is an integrated learning experience platform (LXP) that transforms learning from a standalone activity to something that’s absorbed in the course of your team’s day-to-day work, with resources, insights and learning experiences easily shared between peers.

We are proud to have held Platinum partner status since 2011 and in that time have worked with many corporate businesses and organisations to produce workplace learning platforms using Totara Learn. Due to our long-standing partnership with Totara, you can be sure to receive the highest level of support, knowledge and service with your Totara Learn platform.

How Totara Engage will
boost productivity

Learning playlists

Easily curate and share playlists incorporating videos, podcasts, articles, blogs and other learning content. Users can create their own playlists to share learning across the organisation.

Workflow learning

Bitesize chunks of learning are integrated within the normal flow of work for each user. This makes learning more efficient and less daunting, while raising productivity amongst your team.

Unite your team

Use Totara Engage to increase engagement with learning and between your team members. Drive increased productivity, higher work quality and better talent retention.

Encourage social learning

In a time of remote working, restore the peer-to-peer interactions that account for 70% of workplace learning. Informal learning flourishes in Totara Engage’s collaboration workspaces.

AI learning recommendations

Totara Engage’s powerful recommendations engine generates personalised learning content for each of your learners based on their interests, skills and role.

Gamification of learning

Reward your team for completing and creating high-quality learning content. A competitive element boosts morale and motivation.

Detailed analytics

See who’s driving the organisation forward, spot experts on particular topics and identify those who are not fully engaged.

Easy integration

Totara Engage integrates seamlessly with Totara Learn and Totara Perform, as well as communication tools such as Slack and Microsoft Teams, to create a complete learning and communication platform.

Flexible sharing settings

Retain full control over access rights to content shared in playlists or workspaces. Totara Engage lets you share content only with specific learners or people in particular roles.

So, why choose Synergy Learning as your Totara Engage partner?

Strong Totara pedigree

We’ve been supporting organisations with Totara since 2011, becoming Platinum Totara Partners in the process. In that time, we’ve built more than 200 Totara sites and also built a wealth of knowledge of how to get the most from the platform.

Learning experience specialists

 We’ve been shaping learning experiences since 2005. An LXP like Totara Engage is the latest example of us applying our longstanding e-learning know-how to emerging learning technologies. Combining the new technology, our experience and your knowledge of your organisation, we’ll get the results you need.

Customised to how you work 

Having tasks and learning content dropped into a continuous workflow is efficient, but that workflow needs to reflect your ways of working. We’ll customise Totara Engage so it’s perfectly suited to how you do things.

Giving you more

Perhaps Totara Engage is missing a feature or functionality that is key to your organisation. If so, we’ll build it for you. Our experienced Totara developers regularly write new code for clients or sometimes for the open source community, so we’ll be able to develop whatever it is you need.

Engaging design

We’ll create a Totara Engage platform in your organisation’s image. Working to your brand guidelines, our experienced UX designers will craft an engaging user journey for your team members.

Straightforward integration

 We’ll deliver Totara Engage as a standalone LXP or integrate it with a new or existing learning management system, such as Totara Learn, to coordinate all your training and learning activities.

Sometimes you expect to be able to work with a platform straight out-of-the-box, but there are always quirks when it comes to adapting to your systems. Synergy Learning were instrumental for us in providing the development and consultancy we needed.

We were impressed with the flexibility and the level of consultancy that Synergy Learning was able to provide. They were able to understand our requirements and create a user friendly learning portal for staff, and one that we can amend and be comfortable using without having to go back for minor changes.

Save the Children's LMS, an example of an LMS for charities

Synergy Learning is always really responsive. The team is very approachable and communicative – they reach out to me a lot and stay in contact even when we don’t have ongoing work. Given a short deadline, they are always able to work to really tight timelines. They’re also very flexible when those timelines change.

We would like to thank Synergy Learning for turning this project around so quickly. UHB is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in England and we are at the forefront in the fight against COVID-19, along with our colleagues across the rest of the UK. We are very proud to be launching this platform in the West Midlands and hope it helps alleviate some of the worries I know many colleagues have.
