The Federated Academic Digital Imaging System (FADIS) is a consortial learning management and courseware system developed for image based teaching of art, architecture and visual culture. The goal of FADIS is the creation of a freely available common repository and delivery system for education and research available to contributing institutions. Access is restricted to faculty, students, and staff of each participating institution. All content is to be used for the purpose of private study, research, criticism, and review. It is the user's responsibility to operate within and to observe the copyright laws of Canada. For more information about joining please see Joining FADIS.
FADIS was initially started in 2000 as pilot project at the Department of Art, University of Toronto and quickly expanded to all three campuses as a digital replacement for slide libraries. It has since expanded to mulitple institutions across Canada.
