Robb Allen

Director, IT

Summary

Robb joined LINGOs in October 2008 as director of technology. He oversees all aspects of LINGOs technology systems such as learning management systems (LMS), learning analytics platforms, content delivery systems, WordPress, Office 365, and SQL databases.

Robb was poached from Connected Learning Network (CLN) where he worked for over nine years as vice president of information technology overseeing technology operations, LMS, and 24/7 live support for online learners. The first LMS used by LINGOs was hosted by CLN, so Robb feels like he has been part of the LINGOs family since long before 2008. Prior to CLN, Robb worked in various technology positions at the University of Louisville for over nine years.

Robb graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts – Lowell and a Master’s degree from Boston University (both degrees in Computer Information Systems). He lives in Louisville, KY (home of the Kentucky Derby).

Q + A

Dogs or cats? Do you have any pets, if so, details?

I am absolutely a dog person. I have a 3-year-old Havanese named Willow. Prior to Willow coming into my life, for 11 years I had a Yorkshire Terrier named Izzy until she passed away in 2014. I have separation anxiety when I leave my furbaby for any length of time but that can quickly be soothed with a treat and nap.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Or dessert in general?

I’m a plain vanilla type of person when it comes to ice cream and dessert (and, in general, most other things).
