  • Description

    The Sakai CLE is a free collaboration and learning environment platform for use in teaching, research and collaborative scholarship; developed by Sakai Foundation contributors.

    Sakai CLE includes many of the features common to course management systems or VLEs, including document distribution, a gradebook, discussion, live chat, assignment uploads, and online testing.

    It also features a personal workspace with a range of user oriented tools such as: Message Of The Day; Generic collaboration tools; Announcements; a Drop Box which allows instructors and students to share documents within a private folder for each participant; an email archive; shared resources folders; a chat room; forums; a message center to communicate using internal course mail; news / RSS feeds; and a user poll tool.

    There is also a facility to upload and share slide presentations; a profile / roster function; full repository search; and a schedule which allows instructors or site organizers to post items in a calendar format.

    For an in-depth look at the Sakai CLE and the broader Sakai Project check out the Official Sakai Guide Book and the newly published book Sakai: Free as in Freedom.
