A presentation by Andrew McAllister and Christopher Bennell, Faculty IT Support Technician
As Canada’s oldest art and design University, the Ontario College of Art & Design requires IT systems appropriate for
visual teachers and learners. Since 2004, OCAD developed and maintained its own learning management system instead
of looking elsewhere.Why not use the plethora of other tools? With open-source tools like the Zend framework, and
user-centered design methodology our LMS has been a string of successes. In this presentation, we will show you how to
excite your faculty and IT team alike by focusing on innovation from within.
