Our Story

Where we came from

In 2004 Queen’s University School of Medicine needed a modern teaching and learning environment. However, nothing on the market met their accreditation driven requirements of knowing exactly where, when and how their curriculum was being taught and assessed. Elentra was born out of delivering that need.

A key focus of Elentra centred around our Curriculum Mapping and Management module which enables us to demonstrate exactly how our curriculum was being delivered and assessed. This revolutionary feature made other institutions take notice resulting in the Elentra consortium being set up.

Where we are now

After working within the Elentra Consortium for over a decade on creating a truly unified solution, providing schools with the ability to digitise the curriculum using one platform to drive efficiency, Elentra Cloud has been launched to provide the offering to non-consortium schools.

We recently added state of the art LMS capabilities as well as the ability to deliver Competency-Based Medical Education (CBME). Both additions have further enhanced Elentra’s focus as a modern, flexible, Integrated Teaching and Learning Platform.
