Sakai LMS Help
The Sakai Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) is an open source, web based learning management system which allows Instructors and Students to store and retrieve course material, communicate with each other and track student progress through the course. In addition to course sites, the CLE can host project sites where project members can share documents and collaborate. The CLE is accessible from any web connected device using your NPS user name and password.
- To access the CLE go to https://cle.nps.edu
- If you are a registered NPS student, login using your standard NPS credentials
- If you are a Non-NPS guest participant, login using your email address. (See 'Guest Access' below)
- if you are not able to login, contact the Sakai Help Desk at 831-656-2020 or at email@example.com
Non-NPS users must be invited by a course instructor or project organizer to access the CLE. More details about how to access the CLE once you've been invited is available in the Guest Access Overview.
