Omnium is a Learning Management System designed specifically with artists and designers in mind. It has assessment and communication tools, and adds to that the ability to create galleries for the display of images. Its emphasis is on visual presentation. Omnium will be available to staff for development purposes in Semester 1, 2011 with a view to making it available for student access by Semester 2, 2011.

The Omnium Group

Omnium is a research group of academics, designers, artists, programmers and writers who work collaboratively (and from different countries) to explore the potential the Internet allows for what we term – online collaborative creativity (OCC). Omnium Software provides a web-based interface, designed specifically to encourage formation of professional, educational and public online communities and networks. It is ideal for use within visual arts & design disciplines and for others that rely on a high level of visual content. It brings members together for discussion and dynamic interaction, independent of their physical locations.
