Nurturing your Totara Courses

If you've ever nurtured a garden or watched a flower or tree grow you understand the key concepts that play into its success. Within this course we propose that your current SCORM content is the seed, and with the development of supporting content you'll be in a position "watch it bloom". After you complete this course and explore various Totara content types you'll be prepared to tend to a Totara course that well supports end users and presents a robust learning experience.

eThink's "Nurturing your Totara Courses" consists of eight modules, paired with 'webinar workshops' over the course of five weeks. Following a 30-minute kick-off webinar where we provide an overview of the sessions, participants will gain access to a few modules at a time within a supplemental course. In the following four weeks, we will hold a 1-hour webinar to cover the key points of those modules and hold an open discussion/Q&A session on those topics.


Webinar #1 (Seeding your course) – September 24

Webinar #2 (Surrounding your seedling) – October 1

Webinar #3 (Cultivating a prize winner) – October 8

Webinar #4 (Companion Planting) – October 15


Participants can expect to spend approximately 2-4 hours per week between the webinars engaging with the supporting content and activities, and working to cultivate changes in a course you have already designed or are managing. By the end you'll be well positioned to tend to your own thriving Totara course!
