Welcome to CDL

At the CSU Center for Distributed Learning (CDL), we build tools and facilitate educational communities that support teaching and learning. Working with faculty and students to understand instructional challenges and brainstorm possible solutions that can be shared among campuses, we are guided in all of our projects by the way teachers teach and students learn. Then we apply our knowledge of web technologies and design to create powerful applications and tools that support faculty and students in their teaching and learning processes.
