Who we are


HISTORY - DeckChair Learning Systems Inc. is a unique Ontario corporation founded by pioneers in computer-supported learning to commercialize advances in teaching and assessment techniques developed at The University of Toronto. Their past commercial success includes developing a software program for Cengage Learning that has been a top-seller for over a decade. With the assistance of the University's Innovations and Partnership Office the new DeckChairTutor© software was spun out as a commercial product and DeckChair opened its doors in 2007.


DeckChair is different than all e-learning services on the market today. Our lab-tested technology enables educators to deliver better web experiences by creating adaptive, performance based learning environments that tailor content to each individual's personal progress. The system helps students learn on their own and at their own pace.
