Hello Teachers,

LON-CAPA training is again being provided to teachers at no cost this
summer.  This summer's workshop is both for teachers new to LON-CAPA
and for those experienced with the system.  The workshop will be on
MSU's campus from Monday, June 20 through Wednesday, June 22.  You can
find details and register for the workshop at:


1) Registration deadline is Friday, June 17th or until the first 25
participants register.
2) Deadline to reserve affordable on-campus housing is Friday, June 10th,
or until the limited number of dorm rooms set aside are all reserved.

See the registration form for details about housing.

For new teachers, the workshop will emphasize all the basic skills
required to effectively run classes for the 10/11 academic year.  New
teachers must attend the sessions on Monday, June 20. The goal for new
teachers is to master sufficient material to be able to use LON-CAPA
in a class for the coming academic year.

For current users, this is an opportunity to improve authoring skills
and learn about new features.  Experienced users do not need to attend
the Monday session, but are welcome to join and help teachers new to

For both groups, it will be an opportunity to:

(a) Meet and exchange ideas with fellow teachers
(b) Assemble materials for the forthcoming academic year

Please communicate this information with K-12 colleagues in your  
school and at other schools.
