Sakai Collaboration and Learning Environment (CLE)

Tools integrated or associated with the Sakai Learning Management System:


  • Wikispaces – Summer 2013:  URI has implemented Private Label Wikispaces as a tool within Sakai 2.8. If you are currently using Wikispaces on your own, you will be contacted by Wikispaces, to plan the migration of your academic wikis into the Private Label version. One feature of this system is the dashboard where you can manage all of your wikis from one area. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Other commonly used software:

The Hot Potatoes suite includes six applications, enabling you to create interactive multiple-choice, short-answer, jumbled-sentence, crossword, matching/ordering and gap-fill exercises for the World Wide Web. Hot Potatoes is freeware, and you may use it for any purpose or project you like. It is not open-source.
