Totara Recipe 14 – Customer Service

Question: Who is involved in customer service at your organisation?

Answer: Probably everyone!

E-learning has the potential to transform customer service training by allowing learners to practice their skills in safe, non-confrontational settings before they have to use these skills in the real world.
But where do you begin?


  • A mission statement. What are the training goals being pursued? Outcomes such as product knowledge and stress management are also part of customer service.
  • A flexible and scalable LMS.
  • Powerful reporting tools to track user progress.
  • Cloud hosting for access anytime, anywhere.
  • Social learning tools.

  • Share your video on company vision and values.
  • Integrate your customer service training with existing internal systems. Build the ethos that everyone in your organisation is involved in customer service.
  • Opt for user-centred design to promote engagement. How does this training connect to real-life situations?
  • What are your targets? Set measurable objectives to gauge improvements, e.g. cross-selling targets or a particular metric.


  • Show your team what the gold standard of customer service looks like. Your content should enable learners view interactions with a critical eye.
  • Build engagement early through collaboration. Everyone will have a story to share and this will add authenticity and personality to the learning.
  • Communication is key. Build in regular reminders and bite-sized learning to ensure everyone is on track with their learning.
