SumTotal Reviews & Overview

What is SumTotal?

SumTotal Learn is an evolution of the aging, one-size-fits-all approach to learning management systems (LMS). Rather than simply throwing every possible feature into a single solution, the SumTotal team chose to focus on connecting the skills that your employees need for their careers with the measurable achievements you need to track for your organization.

With SumTotal Learn, you’ll be able to optimize your workforce and create an organizational culture of continual learning. By helping you create meaningful course content and actionable, adaptive learning plans, SumTotal Learn generates an upward spiral among your learners. In short, it’s a learning management system that’s more than the sum of its parts.

Part of the Skillsoft SumTotal suite (which also includes SumTotal Talent, SumTotal elixHR, and SumTotal Work), SumTotal Learn is dynamic and engaging, unlike other learning solutions, which can quickly feel bogged down by their everything-for-everyone approach. With over 30 years of industry leadership, the SumTotal team has crafted one of the most intuitive, modern user interfaces available in the LMS market.

SumTotal is accessible to learners and instructors, with responsive mobile design and an available web-based interface that can be accessed from any Internet enabled computer or mobile device. Further, each person in the communication chain, from learner to administrator, can have a customized experience. Provide more freedom to higher level workers or to learners who work well at their own pace, while controlling access for those who need a more curated learning experience.

Since your organization is unique, the SumTotal experience can be tailored to meet your needs. Run your learning team through Skillsoft’s hosting services, or have an in-house installation. Whatever solution works best for you and your learners, SumTotal can rise to the challenge.
