Our experiential program was at a crossroads and one of our major goals was to find ways to work more
efficiently. CORE helped us do that. Although we're only into our first year using the program, we
already use functions that save time and we anticipate saving much more as we learn more about it. The
training process was actually a lot less stressful than we thought and the conversion from our old
program was made seamless by the CORE team.

Director, Experiential Education
I enjoy precepting students from the University of Connecticut but have little time for additional paperwork. I appreciate the investment the University has made in the CORE software which allows me to easily access my student schedules, electronic performance evaluations, and student profiles.

Before CORE, students spent valuable study time researching hundreds of potential sites while
administrators wrestled with a decentralized email-and-spreadsheet system to offer a semblance of
structure. CORE’s ELMS upended this paradigm with an intuitive, customizable tool that empowered me to
quickly research and select my experiential opportunities. After meeting success with this product, I
can confidently say that any institution that does not use CORE is operating beneath the new industry
Student - Class of 2014
We are just beginning to use the CORE suite. Our students and preceptors like its straight-forward
format. Support has been wonderful and their team is always willing to listen to our concerns and help
determine the best way to implement and use the software to meet our needs.

University of Arizona
The staff at CORE have been wonderful to work with. They have been very responsive to our requests…
and in a timely manner. Our preceptors have found this educational management system very user friendly.
They continue to add and update system features that make our jobs easier. Most importantly, they listen
and respond to our needs.

Director of Experiential Education
University of Rhode Island
I am a preceptor with four different Colleges of Pharmacy. Over the years, I have been provided with
other Experiential Learning Management Systems to manage my students. I find CORE ELMS to be by far the
most intuitive and easiest to use… making my job easier.

As an experiential learning site for St Johns University, CORE ELMS software makes my job much easier.
The fact I can view student bios, student schedules, and evaluate all of my students in one convenient
location is a tremendous help.

CORE ELMS provides a virtual conference room in which every detail of an internship may be ironed out
as a cooperation between student, preceptor and educational institution. Without CORE ELMS, organizing
rotations would be a mess of crisscrossed letters and cumbersome email storage.
