A new community partner, a new collaborative software development platform, and a fancy new Entrada software release. Welcome to Entrada 1.5.1.

Welcome David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA

We are pleased to officially announce that the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA has joined the Entrada consortium as our 4th official Entrada Community Partner. With the help of their focused and driven software developers, not to mention feedback from their world renowned medical educators, we have already seen great contributions from them to Entrada software. Thank-you, welcome, and we are very excited to be working with you.

Entrada on GitHub

In our continuing efforts to improve project collaboration, visibility, and efficiency we have moved and consolidated our software development management into the world’s largest open source community, GitHub. GitHub’s robust platform now powers our code management, issue management, and documentation wiki. Fork us on GitHub!

Entrada 1.5.0 and 1.5.1 Released

It is with great pleasure that the Entrada development community announces the immediate availability of Entrada 1.5.1 from the downloads page of the Entrada website, as well as the master branch of our Git repository.

  • Ability to add custom user profile fields for users in certain departments
  • Ability to time release objectives within learning events
