Center for Language Education and Research

Resources for foreign language educators include evaluation and assessment projects from the web site CLEAR, Center for Language Education and Research. The "store" is a good starting point because it moves you quickly to the mostly free resources such as rich Internet applications (RIAs). For people in a hurry, go straight to the page with All Products.

CLEAR is a U.S. Department of Education Title VI Language Resource Center. Obviously, the emphasis on content is languages. The RIAs and other technology resources are for everyone, with user-friendly interfaces to support use of Flash word processors, game creators, mashup creators, etc. The talent behind the works: Michigan State University.

There are 15 Department of Ed language resource centers, accessible from another web page at Michigan.
