Welcome To CLOI Literacy Courses For Maine Educators
What will CLOI bring to you? Individualized, job-embedded professional learning opportunities to apply for re-licensure, move across pay scale, and/or further your literacy instruction knowledge. Commonwealth Learning Online Institute provides online professional development courses for Connecticut area educators which implement-specific standards coupled with technology tools, research-based assessments, and best teaching practices. Our learning opportunities offer teachers, schools, and districts convenient, job-embedded access to facilitated courses five times a year, and self-paced programs with open enrollment year-round. The courses are modified to provide an individual learning experience that addresses each teacher’s specific instructional needs.
We provide convenient, 24/7 access to job-embedded courses. Our goal is to create learning opportunities that meet the needs of every teacher, school, and district.

In 1986, the Stratford Foundation Inc. was formed with the goal of becoming a valuable educational resource for the community. After establishing the Commonwealth Learning Center in 1988 and the Professional Training Institute in 1992, Stratford came into the 21st century in 2010 when CLOI, the Commonwealth Learning Online Institute, was formed.
Since our early days we have increased our offerings and university partners to meet the needs of educators nationwide. Today our program includes both self-paced and facilitated courses, and our credit offering institutions have expanded to include Gordon College, Westfield State University, and MidAmerica Nazarene University.
After nearly a decade, our commitment to being a valuable professional development resource for the community is stronger than ever, and we work towards this everyday by providing exceptional learning for educators across the country.
I have found that students who are struggling and reluctant writers are more successful when given the option to use computers. I also am hoping to motivate the students who are stuck in a rut and who have experienced a more traditional approach towards learning vocabulary. I am eager to bring such dynamic tools back to the classroom.
