Session Description

 Even with the required use of an institutional LMS, instructors still have a wide range of open source options for providing a more customized experience for their courses. In this session, Paul Hibbitts will share with you his recent work with a modern flat-file (no database) Web platform/CMS called Grav (getgrav.org) to complement and enhance SFU’s Canvas LMS. His goal was simple: to deliver a better student experience while at the same time decreasing his own workload in maintaining the on-line component of his course.



Paul is a university educator as well as a practitioner and advocate of people-centered design. For over 20 years he has delivered successful strategies and design solutions through creating, leading and training for organizations such as SAP BusinessObjects, The Canadian Real Estate Association and The University of British Columbia. Leveraging this professional user experience design skill set with his extensive instructional background, Paul thrives on the challenges of learner experience design for today‘s multi-device world of connected learners.
