The LearningOnline Network with Computer-Assisted Personalized Approach(LON-CAPA): 

The LearningOnline Network with Computer-Assisted Personalized Approach (LON-CAPA) Gerd Kortemeyer Michigan State University

LON-CAPA: 

LON-CAPA What is LON-CAPA?

LON-CAPA: 

LON-CAPA Learning Content Management System Assessment System Open-Source and Free

LON-CAPA: 

LON-CAPA Learning Content Management System Assessment System Open-Source and Free

LCMS: 

LCMS Providing high quality learning content in an online environment is time and cost intensive Typical scenario today: Online material is developed by only one instructor Online material is used by only one instructor Online material is used in only one course No assessment of learning effectiveness In-effective use of time and resources

LCMS: 

LCMS Much better scenario: Online material is developed and reviewed by more than one instructor Online material is shared among instructors Online material gets used across many courses and disciplines Continual assessment of learning effectiveness

LearningOnline Network: 

LearningOnline Network LON-CAPA learning content management is: a cross-institutional cross-disciplinary content repository a tool to seamlessly assemble this content a complete course management system to readily deploy this content

Integrated Scientific Typesetting: 

Integrated Scientific Typesetting Combined HTML/ LaTeX Source Configurable online rendering: As HTML As Image Using Mathtype fonts Compatible Compatible Configuration Low bandwidth high bandwidth Low bandwidth

Integrated Scientific Typesetting: 

Integrated Scientific Typesetting Print: HTML-andgt;LaTeX PDF output Combined HTML/ LaTeX Source

Licensing: 

Licensing Authors keep copyright and ownership Authors grant right of use Authors determine who can use their content and how Users cannot modify source Configurable so that users cannot even see source

Network: 

Network Network of connected servers Any server in the network can serve any resource in the system Content replication in background Network-wide persistent URL paths

Replication: 

Replication North Dakota State University server serving resource from Michigan State University First time the resource is accessed, it is copied in the background closer to user MSU not stuck with serving the resource will continue to work if connection to MSU down Leaves behind subscription on MSU server When resource updated at MSU, NDSU copy is either updated or deleted, depending on usage pattern

Bottom: Virtual Filesystem: 

Bottom: Virtual Filesystem Currently links 3 middle schools, 18 high schools, 4 community colleges, and 24 universities 20,900 content pages 18,600 homework and exam problems 12,500 images 2,100 content assemblies 1,100 simulations and animations 500 movies Publisher libraries, 'back of the chapter problems'

Slide23: 

Online assessment with immediate adaptive feedback and multiple tries Different students get different versions of the same problem different options different graphs or images different numbers or formulas LON-CAPA’s Approach

Slide24: 

Same problem, two students

Formative Assessment: 

Formative Assessment Feedback to the student 'how am I doing?' 'what is expected?' Feedback to the instructor 'how is my class doing?' 'what do I need to deal with, and what not?' Just-In-Time Teaching (reading and problems due before class)

Feedback to Instructor: 

Feedback to Instructor One Homework Set Average Number of Tries as a Measure of Difficulty

LON-CAPA: 

LON-CAPA Does it work?

Effectiveness: 

Effectiveness LON-CAPA is a tool, not a curriculum. Effectiveness depends on how it is used.

Time on Task: 10,000 students: 

Time on Task: 10,000 students x5

Time-On-Task: 

Time-On-Task Academic year 2004/2005 Approx 12,600 (fall) and 10,800 (spring) MSU students 100,000 logins 16 days into the year 1,000,000 logins by March, seven months into the year Approx 30,000 students systemwide
