LON-CAPA is an open-source online Learning Management System (LMS) well suited for courses in engineering/technology. Its capabilities for managing technical problems far exceed those of other LMSs. Instructors can create a wide array of online problems not possible in other systems, including complex equation rendering, multi-part problems, dynamic graphing, and interactive plots. Participants will learn about the power of LON-CAPA and get experience creating a variety of their own problems during the session.
