<p class="text-muted">Totem helps security trainers and learners extend the learning experience from a few days of actual offline training into a more continuous and on-going, interactive learning environment. For example, trainers can curate courses about basic tools and concepts which the learners can take before a face-to-face, offline training commences. Totem can also be used after a face-to-face training has concluded, so learners can continue to learn advanced concepts and stay engaged with the trainers using secure communication methods provided via the platform.</p>

<p class="text-muted">Although very effective and extremely useful, face-to-face, offline training is limited in scope. It is often difficult for trainers and learners to exchange knowledge about evolving threats, tools and tactics after a training has concluded. Totem aims to provide a platform where trainers can continue to exchange new knowledge about digital security and privacy with learners they have trained in the past via frequently updated curricula. This enables activists & journalists to retain and improve their knowledge about the topics that they have received previous training on.</p>
