Ken Cook Co. gives you the ability to customize your Learning Management System and add plug-ins to make it truly your own.

According to, it is estimated that between 2017 and 2018 the Learning Management System (LMS) market will grow by roughly 23.17%. As LMS grows in popularity, customers expect more and more from their LMS provider. As a customer, you want your LMS to be adaptable and change as your needs change. You want your site to have personality. With Totara LMS, customization takes little effort. Every few years, customers are updating the look and feel of their websites. Their LMS site should easily reflect these periodic changes in look and feel.

“One of the main reasons we chose Totara as an LMS provider is the ability for customization and plug-ins. The options to make this system your own are almost endless,” notes Aaron Murray, LMS Administrator at Ken Cook Co.

Theming and Aesthetics

Choose from thousands of themes, admin-based fonts, colors, and buttons. Themes can be functional or non-functional. Totara LMS can be themed using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), HTML, JavaScript and many other coding languages to give your site a unique look and feel. Add logos and colors to truly make it your own without the custom cost of branding. You can easily change the interface. Simply build off an existing base and continue modifying the site to look the way you want. At Ken Cook Co., we can even completely design a custom theme for you if needed. We can essentially make your LMS an extension of your website.

“You can make the interface as vanilla or as fancy as you wish,” says Murray.
