LON-CAPA is content-driven, for example:

  • You put content into your course, the navigation is dynamically updated.
  • You put a problem into a folder,
    • it goes into the grade book,
    • you can set its due date and point value, etc.
  • Discussions are attached to the content and thus in context.
  • Messages are sent in context.

This is what we mean by: the content drives the system. You select the content, the system runs it.
