The progression of the Learning Management system at the David Geffen School of Medicine
The ANGEL learning management system (LMS) that served as a backbone to the DGSOM curriculum over the past decade expired in March 2015. Four years prior to ANGEL’s end of life, we formed an Advisory Committee, which consisted of faculty, staff, and students, to help us find the 21st century LMS that will support our innovative and evolving medical school curriculum. In 2013 and after careful review, our Institution chose Entrada (also known locally as Gryphon), a homegrown system developed by Queen’s University School of Medicine in Kingston, Canada. We joined Queen’s University School of Medicine and University of Calgary in the consortium and became the 3rd community partner that contributes to the development of the system.
In addition to being an LMS, Gryphon is a curriculum management system and contains a lot of features and functionalities that are designed to meet the unique needs of a medical school. The iCal Calendar Feeds easily allows learners to subscribe and automatically receive the latest class schedule. Each of the learning event’s objectives is prominently listed, along with resources (slides, notes, podcasts, learning modules, etc.) for that event. These resources can also be downloaded en masse by week or year, making it convenient for learners to quickly access all materials that are provided to them. Furthermore, the system allows our Institution to export data to Association American Medical College Curriculum Inventory portal.
