UCSF Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) is getting an update. The CLE (powered by Moodle) will be upgraded from version 3.2 to 3.3 on December 29, 2017 and will be unavailable from 6:00 AM – 3:00 PM (PT) to complete the upgrade.

Results can include courses, course resources and activities, and even text within forum posts.
