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 in East Lansing on Monday, June
17 and Tuesday, June 18, with optional open worktime on Wednesday,
June 19.  You can find details and register for the workshop at:


1) Registration deadline is Saturday, June 15 or until the first 25
participants register.
2) Deadline to reserve on-campus dorm accommodation is today:
Wednesday, June 12th.

See the registration form for details about dorm accommodation.

For new teachers, the workshop will emphasize all the basic skills
required to effectively run classes for the 13/14 academic year.  New
teachers should attend the session on Monday, June 17. The goal for
new teachers is to master sufficient material to be able to use
LON-CAPA in a class for the upcoming academic year.

For current users, this is an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas  
with fellow teachers, assemble materials for the forthcoming academic  
year, and learn about new features in the upcoming LON-CAPA 2.11  

Experienced users should attend the Tuesday session.

If you wish to explore LON-CAPA 2.11 ahead of release please visit:

and click the "New User?" link to create an account.

Once you have created an account you will be able to create a
temporary course.

Note: the testdrive cluster is not connected to the main LON-CAPA
network so there is no access to the shared repository of over 400,000
learning objects. Also, courses created in the testdrive cluster will
not be backed up, so the system should only be used for exploration.

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