The XpressLab Story
XpressLab began as a dream – to allow language students to practice their listening and speaking skills on their own.
Spurred by this vision, a pedagogy professor at the University of Windsor and her husband, who worked in education management, created a prototype that could deliver listening and speaking activities on the web.
But it was still far from ideal.
While students could record their speech, all the recordings still had to be individually reviewed and marked by the teacher. More importantly, the prototype did not meet the Ministry of Education’s security and privacy requirements.
That was when they approached Sharbel Lutfallah, founder of Wired Solutions, a custom software company headquartered in Windsor, Ontario.
Wired Solutions was the ideal partner to take XpressLab from concept to reality.
Not only is Wired Solutions committed to creating intelligent software solutions that solve real-world problems, it also has a long history of developing applications for the education sector.
Education is in its DNA.
Wired Solutions has built:
- the Course Writing System for e-Learning Ontario
- a student portal for the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC)
- the eCampusOntario portal for the Ontario Online Learning Consortium/Consortium ontarien pour l’apprentissage en ligne (OOLC/COAEL)
- an integrated course management system for the University of Toronto’s Centre for Interprofessional Education (IPE)
With Wired Solutions, XpressLab has become a robust cloud-based software for language learning and assessment.
Coding since the age of nine, Sharbel Lutfallah founded Wired Solutions in November 1998. Since then, the company has been providing user-friendly web applications that solve complex business requirements.
Aside from XpressLab, Wired Solutions has created applications for large organizations, particularly in education and healthcare.
Customer service, agility, and collaboration mark Sharbel’s approach to business. His team members know him as someone who is flexible, down-to-earth, and supportive.
