Creating digital tools to empower students

Digital technologies, if fully harnessed, can transform education for all students, especially those with disabilities. CISL, the Center on Inclusive Software for Learning, has created an innovative new learning environment, Clusive®. Clusive is designed to support the needs of diverse learners by making digital educational materials accessible, flexible, and engaging for all students.

Learn more about Clusive

Engaging and research-based

Clusive is based on the principles of Universal Design for Learning. Clusive supports readers by providing options, making clear, data-based suggestions, and giving learners ultimate control over their learning experience. All of our features are based on up-to-date research about what can help struggling students access content and learn about themselves to become empowered learners. We have also made much of our research available for parents, educators, and other ed-tech developers.
