This presentation will focus on the development and operating characteristics of the Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE), Clemson University's delivery system for all academic computing. The CLE promotes active, student-centered learning and collaboration. It is easy to use and universally accessible to more than 36,000 faculty, staff and students through a single userid and password. It provides a consistent suite of tools, services and class workspace for every course section taught. As a means of demonstrating the versatility of this environment we will also pro-vide two classroom applications of this computing environment by professors in the management and psychology departments.
