From CLEW Wiki
CLEW is used to support teaching and learning in face-to-face courses, distance education courses, and courses that are a blend of the two. Using CLEW, instructors can:
- post lecture notes or PowerPoint presentations on-line
- make class announcements
- guide learning through on-line lessons
- facilitate group work in discussion forums
- accept assignments on-line and provide confidential feedback
- post secure confidential grades
CLEW is also designed to support research and collaboration efforts. CLEW may be used to facilitate ad-hoc collaboration, to administer a study, to collaborate on a grant, or to run a study group between individuals within one or several institutions.
CLEW is part of a global network of educators using open-source software called Sakai, otherwise known as a Collaboration and Learning Environment (CLE). Sakai can be used beyond the classroom as free, open-source software, which offers the ultimate in flexibility, avoids the risks of vendor lock-in and escalating license costs, and can be customized. Also, institutions can join the Sakai environment with other well-known foundation partners like Stanford University, University of California, Berkeley, Indiana University, Yale University, University of MichiganColumbia UniversityOxford University, University of Cambridge, and the list goes on! The global adoption continues to grow. The University of Windsor is one of the first Canadian partners in the Sakai team.
