Who we are
Leara is a full-service, client-focused elearning company based in Calgary, Canada. We do everything elearning, including course development, LMS implementation, instructional design, and SCORM consulting. We are known for exceptional customer experience, evidence-based approaches and leadership in mobile elearning.
We've been passionately creating elearning since 1999, so we've seen a ton of transformation in the industry. Our passion led us to the development of our in-house, innovative, award-winning content creation tool, Respond5, which helps us design intelligent, accessible solutions for you and your learners.
The name Leara [Lair·uh] is inspired by the Icelandic word læra, meaning both to learn and to teach. We love that this single word encompases both elements, which are at the heart of our purpose. Our mission is not just to upskill, train or onboard, but to inspire, make positive change and empower.
What sets us apart?
We do things smarter.
Our courses are fully responsive - meaning they're intelligently optimized for every screen size, automatically optimizing size, layout and interactions for every device. Your learners get the best experience on every screen.
After we deliver your course, our technology allows your team to easily edit your own content. Intuitively edit inline, then just click "publish" and your content will be updated everywhere it's hosted - instantly.
Our use of Google's Material Design ensures your course looks great from the start, minimizes cognitive load on learners, and incorporates your branding throughout. The courses we design are beautiful, interactive, and engaging.
The science of learning
Our evidence-based approach applies the science of learning to every course we create. The power of learning science drives our instructional design and leads to smarter learning programs that really make an impact.
Our award-winning technology allows for narrated elements, videos and engaging interactions that work on all devices - including iPhones. This technology has been licensed to NASA and Expedia, and we can bring this expertise to your next project, big or small.
We are elearning, LMS and SCORM experts. Our content is fully SCORM-compliant and automatically handles tracking, flow-control and bookmarking - and it works in any LMS. We also offer our "Micro LMS" for those looking for simpler, more cost-effective tracking.

We love an amazing organization called Sun Books, an initiative of the World Literacy Foundation, who's mission is to eradicate illiteracy in children. They're doing this in a remarkable way - by providing solar-powered tablets pre-loaded with ebooks, literacy activities, and educational content to remote, underprivileged classrooms around the world. They equip areas without internet or electricity with sustainable, solar-powered digital learning tools while preserving local language and culture and supporting and training teachers. We think they're incredible and have donated a portion of our revenues to them since 2017. Get in touch to learn more.
