Educational content should not live on an island. While independent learners are welcome in our system, our particular focus is weaving granular content into connected and organized learning venues: courses.
LON-CAPA lets educators manage these courses in a diverse set of environments: schools, colleges, and universities; for-credit, open, blended, or massively online.
Content that has been woven together can immediately be used in courses, there are no exporting and importing hoops to go through – and no compatibility problems, either. The system provides the navigation and management of dates and associated discussions.
Learners are presented with a coherent user experience, which does not require them to switch back and forth between systems, juggle different user interfaces, or navigate back and forth between different components of a course. Course components can be arranged by pedagogical considerations rather than according to system cubbyholes: assessment can be embedded into content, discussions can be attached to content, etc.
