Overview: Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE)

The Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) is UCSF’s space for online teaching and learning. The CLE is powered by Moodle, an open source learning management system where instructors can organize their courses and materials and students can interact with resources and participate in classes. The CLE integrates with complementary systems, including Media@UCSFilios, and Class Capture.
