eMETA Learning Solutions: The eMETA concept and model was originally created by Geran Capewell as a means for Behavioral Health Organizations to better engage and educate their professional community.

In 2008, while providing administrative consulting for a major mental health organization in the United States, Geran saw a need for a learning management system that better catered to the needs of organizations providing professional development programs for their members. Geran brought together a team of Developers, IT Specialists and Educators to build the eMETA Platform. Over 20 different open source applications were integrated into eMETA, many customized to serve specific needs. In addition proprietary applications not available in open source were developed to exclusively serve professional development, continuing education and training Providers. The result is a "cutting edge", feature-rich Learning Environment now used by Provider organizations in a wide variety of professions and industries throughout North America.

The engine platform on which eMETA is built is ATutor licensed by eMeta Learning Solutions under the GNU General Public License (GPL) Protocol. ATutor was originally developed by Greg Gay at the University of Toronto in Canada and is now maintained by the Inclusive Design Research Centre at the Ontario College of Art & Design University. ATutor is being used as the principle Learning Management System by leading universities and learning institutes around the world.
