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.
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.
Get in Clusive!
Looking for ways to get started with Clusive? We have Quick Start guides for students, teachers, parents, and caregivers, a list of all of our Public Library titles that you can filter through and sort, and lesson plans to help bring Clusive to your learning environment.
Explore different displays and settings by adjusting the font style, line height, and letter spacing to suit the topic or situation. Choose a dark background color, smaller text size, or turn on the built-in glossary feature. Set personal motion preferences. The customization possibilities are endless.

All of the software for the Clusive Learning Environment is free and available on GitHub for open source download, development, and improvement. Follow along with our active development process and find the latest release of our software.
