CLE for Learning Management

The Sakai CLE provides an environment for teaching and learning that is grounded in collaboration and open sharing of knowledge.

The Sakai community has identified a set of “core” capabilities that are adopted by virtually all institutions using Sakai. The community tests, manages, and maintains the core capabilities through the community release cycle. The core tools in the 2.7 release are listed below.

In addition, there is a large number of add-on tools, called “contrib” tools, available that have been developed by the community and are in use by many institutions.
