Totara LMS recently worked with ASM Research to be approved as a vendor to the Federal Government/United States Army potentially paving the way towards the open source learning software being utilized by the armed forces for training.
Under what is called the Army’s Networthiness Certification Program which evaluates IT programs for risk and impact, Totara LMS is now cleared to be adopted and connected as software to the Army’s Enterprise Architecture/LandWarNet (LNW). For more information check out http://www.atsc.army.mil/tadlp/implementation/config/networthiness.asp.
Moodle itself was brought through the Networthiness program as early as 2012 paving the way for the LMS to boost capabilities of the US Army Intelligence Center of Excellence’s (USAICoE) Learning Innovation Office (LIO). At the time Moodle was intended to complement the Army’s existing LMS systems. Read more on page 61 here: http://www.fas.org/irp/agency/army/mipb/2012_02.pdf.

BEND, Ore.; June 20, 2014—Totara LMS has received the U.S. Army’s Certificate of Networthiness, enabling the company’s learning management system software to be used with Army systems. Totara, a custom distribution learning management software designed to deliver the benefits and cost savings of open source software to government and corporate clients, will work with ASM Research, an Accenture Federal Services Company, on implementation for federal clients.
ASM Research was selected to help develop Totara’s Solution Partner Network within the federal government, providing technical support for enterprise-wide installation and hosting infrastructure. Totara partners are selected based on their ability to deliver end-to-end solutions and ongoing customer support.
