September 2012: 20th Anniversary of LON-CAPA

  • Sep 1, 2012

The initial roll-out of the Computer-Assisted Personalized Approach (CAPA) system, developed by members of the MSU Department of Physics and Astronomy, was 20 years ago this month.

This system, enhanced and merged with other projects, evolved into the current LearningOnline Network with Computer-Assisted Personalized Approach (LON-CAPA) system, which is now used by more than 140 educational institutions worldwide, not only for physics courses, but in many other fields as well.

See this MSU News story for further information on the anniversary, and the LON-CAPA web site for information on the available features of the system.
