The latest version of CLEo (Sakai 12) includes a number of improvements to existing tools as well as a redesigned user interface and new Gradebook NG tool. Please contact cleo_help@whitman.edu if you have questions about using any of the features listed below. 

Navigation Enhancements

  • "Sites" button in the upper right-hand corner will display all of your current sites. 
  • You can "favorite" sites to pin them to your top navigation just like the previous version of CLEo, as well as easily reorder them.
  • "Breadcrumb" navigation shows you exactly where you are- just click a link to return to the page you're looking for.
  • Responsive design is more compatible with mobile devices and screen readers, automatically resizing to the resolution of the screen you are using. 

NEW Gradebook Tool

  • By default, the classic version of Gradebook is enabled for your site. If you would like to try the new Gradebook NG tool, please go to
