Overview: Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE)

The UCSF Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) is UCSF’s space for online teaching and learning, and is used by thousands of individuals each month. The CLE is powered by Moodle, a well-known open source learning management system and integrates with complementary systems, including Media@UCSFilios, and Class Capture.

The CLE supports Firefox, Safari and Chrome. Please avoid using Internet Explorer as some functionality may not work properly while using Internet Explorer. Other content that is embedded into the CLE, like Class Capture or Articulate modules, may work better in certain browsers than others.

CLE course shells are created by the category manager in your school or department. Contact your category manager to request a new course shell, or contact the Learning Tech Group if you are unsure who your category manager is. 

The Learning Tech Group provides support and training for the CLE and works closely with the development teams to keep the systems updated and running smoothly.
