About the On Demand Academy Team

Denis LePage, Founder, B.Sc., B.Comp., B.P. (banjo player!)

Denis LePage founded On Demand Academy on the principle that learning should be an engaging, interactive and rewarding experience.

Throughout his career as a parts distribution executive, a service shop owner, a musician, an IT executive and a college instructor, Denis has always used his passion for learning and his love of technology to help those around him strive to be better and to find better ways to learn. Whether it was training staff on new automotive products, training technicians new service procedures, teaching aspiring banjo players, or teaching programming skills to IT students, he has always tried to make learning engaging and rewarding for both the instructor and the student. Denis continues to place high value on education in his personal and professional life and firmly believes that everyone can improve through learning.

Gradpass Systems Inc. is the manifestation of this philosophy. On Demand Academy uses the e-learning engine developed by the team at Gradpass Systems Inc. to bring together instructors, instruction materials, learners and reward systems in corporate environments. Through the use of today's technologies, Denis's dream of establishing an engaging, easy to use, easy to access learning environment is one step closer.

Rachel Shuttleworth, B.Comm, MBA

How Rachel finds time to help us out at On Demand Academy is a mystery to everyone. When she's not not tending to her bouncing baby boy or working her full time position, she brings her penchant for strategic communications and her passion for creative marketing to On Demand Academy. We are thankful for the time she is able to contribute! Rachel has 10 years of experience in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. She has a Masters, Business Administration with a specialization in strategic management and a Bachelor of Arts, Honours Communications. Her love of language and globetrotting tendencies have allowed her to work or volunteer in various countries in English and French. She also speaks some Spanish but like most people ‘Cerveza, por favor’ were the first words she learned in that language.
