Can technology empower each and every learner to discover their interests? Can it help them choose preferences that work best for them, whatever their goals? Clusive and Bookshare say, yes!
Clusive is a free, flexible, and adaptive learning environment. It supports users to customize the display and options for their unique preferences and needs. Bookshare is the largest library of online textbooks, bestsellers, children's books, career resources, and more for people with identified reading barriers. The partnership of Clusive and Bookshare opens the full library of Bookshare to the power and flexibility of Clusive.
