CeLS is a web-based system designed to create and reuse Activity Structures; runable formats reflecting various collaborative instructional strategies e.g., creating and analyzing a common database, reaching an agreement, peer-product evaluation, contest, creating a group product. The unique feature in CeLS's design is its ability to use learners' products from previous stages and to design complex, multi-stage, structured activities. CeLS provides a sample of content-free Activity Structures and a searchable domain of all the activities that were implemented with students. Teachers can explore these examples, adopt them for personal use and adapt their structure and content to suit their specific needs. If none of the existing pre-designed resources seems to suit the needs, they can create new structures using basic building blocks.

It is center on the design of learning activities. I like the practical approach and the usability.

To share activities and re-use is a good approach.  the management of the groups is very interesting.

It is a dynamic system but I think that it is not only to collaborative learning, it could be use in other kind of activities

The application is one of the few that supports: design, store, use, share, reuse, rework, remix of activities. Congrats! You should rend it interoperable.

The system has some really interesting perspectives for building activities for both individual and social purposes. The combinations of "building blocks" is really interesting and make the possibilities for new kind of activities to be combined.

I though would have loved the possibility to export to other platforms or the possibility to access the activity build within the system without login. Transparency in the use of this system together with other LMS, VLE, etc. systems.

This application support that teachers can create and make any activity that they need, good software, well done! Activities can be share, and teachers can adopt and adapt activities that others teacher have build.

The application is based on the design of activities, it is very easy to use .  The most important is to share and re-use the design of different pedagogical approach

This is really interesting work and i think that 'the masses' are getting ready to see stuff like this. I know the subject is touchy but I still hope that a wider audeince will be able to enjoy this at some point!

Thanks very much for making the time to share your wonderful work! Can you also post a paper/chapter that describes it so I can share this further?

Thanks!
