We are excited to share an article that was published today on GitHub.com about the Elentra Consortium at Queen’s University’s use of the GitHub platform: https://github.com/customer-stories/queens-university This article gives Elentra some wonderful exposure (right beside Pinterest, Qualcomm, SAP, and Spotify), but it also highlights and markets how universities can use GitHub to collaborate on software development.

Elentra is a community-source Integrated Teaching and Learning Platform™ created by an International consortium of medical schools, which provides learners, instructors, and curriculum administration with a simple way of accessing, interacting, and managing information within a unified online environment.
The Elentra Platform™ is well suited for health sciences education because of its tightly integrated curriculum management and clinical scheduling support. Although Elentra was initially designed to meet the needs of medical education, it could easily be modified and adapted to suit many other professional programs.
Elentra is full featured, and takes a much different approach to online learning than a traditional course-centric Learning Management System; so much so that we try not to classify Elentra under that umbrella and have instead coined “Integrated Teaching and Learning Platform.”Schedule a Demo
On behalf of the Elentra Consortium community, I am pleased to announce the immediate release of Elentra ME 1.18, as well as maintenance releases of Elentra ME 1.17.1, 1.16.2, and 1.15.3.
The Elentra Platform consists of three independent apps that can stand alone or work together: Elentra Admissions, Elentra ME, and Elentra CPD.
Our flagship app, Elentra ME, has seven major pillars to meet the needs of medical education:
- Curriculum Mapping and Reporting
- Academic and Clinical Scheduling and Calendaring
- Learning Management
- Assessment and Evaluation
- Learner ePortfolios
- Faculty Accountability and Annual Reporting
- Community functionality and “Social” integration
The Elentra Consortium™ is built upon the philosophies of open access and collaboration, and we welcome new interest in the project.
