1 LON-CAPA 1 The LearningOnline Network with Computer- Assisted Personalized Approach (LON-CAPA) Gerd Kortemeyer Michigan State University

2 LON-CAPA 2 What is LON- CAPA?

3 LON-CAPA 3 Learning Content Management System Assessment System Open-Source and Free

4 LON-CAPA 4 Learning Content Management System Assessment System Open-Source and Free

5 LON-CAPA 5 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

6 LON-CAPA 6 Bottom: Virtual Filesystem “The aisles of your supermarket”

7 LON-CAPA 7 Bottom: Virtual Filesystem Static metadata: Dublin Core, cross-walk to IMS Dynamic metadata: use assembly data for recommender system:

8 LON-CAPA 8 LearningOnline Network

9 LON-CAPA 9 Bottom: Virtual Filesystem Currently links 4 middle schools, 36 high schools, 5 community colleges, and 34 universities 38,300 content pages 52,600 homework and exam problems 49,300 images 6,600 content assemblies 1,100 simulations and animations 500 movies Publisher libraries, “back of the chapter problems”

10 LON-CAPA 10 Middle: Resource Assembly Tool

11 LON-CAPA 11 LearningOnline Network Writes module on energy conservation Writes module on momentum conservation Includes the two into her unit on conservation laws Uses that unit in his course

12 LON-CAPA 12 Top: Complete Course Management System Course Navigation Tools Communication features (discussion, thread) Announcements Portfolio space Homework, Exams (online/offline)

13 LON-CAPA 13 LON-CAPA Learning Content Management System Assessment System Open-Source and Free

14 LON-CAPA 14 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

15 LON-CAPA 15 Same problem, two students

16 LON-CAPA 16 Focus on Science and Math Combined HTML/ LaTeX Source Configurable online rendering: As HTMLAs Image Using Mathtype fonts Compatible CompatibleConfiguration Low bandwidthhigh bandwidthLow bandwidth

17 LON-CAPA 17 Focus on Science and Math Print: HTML->LaTeX PDF output Combined HTML/ LaTeX Source

18 LON-CAPA 18 Focus on Science and Math Symbolic math grading

19 LON-CAPA 19 Focus on Science and Math Chemical formulas and structures

20 LON-CAPA 20 Focus on Science and Math Full support of physical units

21 LON-CAPA 21 Focus on Science and Math Dynamic Graphing

22 LON-CAPA 22 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)

23 LON-CAPA 23 Feedback to Instructor One Homework Set

24 LON-CAPA 24 Feedback to Instructor

25 LON-CAPA 25 Problem Analysis

26 LON-CAPA 26 Formative Assessment: Peer-Teaching

27 LON-CAPA 27 Summative Assessment

28 LON-CAPA 28 Summative Assessment

29 LON-CAPA 29 Turning Summative into Formative

30 LON-CAPA 30 Turning Summative into Formative

31 LON-CAPA 31 LON-CAPA Learning Content Management System Assessment System Open-Source and Free

32 LON-CAPA 32 LON-CAPA Open-source free software GNU General Public License No license fees Can be modified, extended, improved, adapted... Developed by educators for educators

33 LON-CAPA 33 Runs on what? Runs on Intel or AMD hardware Approx. 200 concurrent sessions per server Linux operating system Standard free distributions: Fedora, SUSE Enterprise versions: Redhat Enterprise Server No additional database, etc, needed

34 LON-CAPA 34 LON-CAPA Does it work?

35 LON-CAPA 35 Effectiveness LON-CAPA is a tool, not a curriculum. Effectiveness depends on how it is used.

36 LON-CAPA 36 Time on Task: 10,000 students x5

37 LON-CAPA 37 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

38 LON-CAPA 38 Before/After Time-On-Task vs. Perceived Helpfulness

39 LON-CAPA 39 Formative vs. Summative

40 LON-CAPA 40 Formative vs. Summative

41 LON-CAPA 41 Exam and Course Grades

42 LON-CAPA 42 Gender Differential phy231: traditional phy232: CAPA

43 LON-CAPA 43 LON-CAPA What’s Next?

44 LON-CAPA 44 Formative Assessment in Class In-Class Use of LON-CAPA Partnering with Harvard (Mazur group) and Erskine (Junkin) on next generation “clickers”

45 LON-CAPA 45 Formative Assessment in Class done

46 LON-CAPA 46 Integration of Computer Algebra System LON-CAPA can already deal with multidimensional symbolic expressions through sampling Integration of Computer Algebra System will allow more flexibility Working with University of Applied Sciences at Wolfenbüttel, Germany, on integration of Maxima CAS

47 LON-CAPA 47 LON-CAPA Academic Consortium Founding partners: Michigan State University and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Each institution commits $2M/year of five years toward further development and support

48 LON-CAPA 48 Current Funding Initially developed at Michigan State University Additional funding of CAPA by Sloan and Mellon Foundations Today funded by Michigan State University, partner universities, publisher and service contracts, and the National Science Foundation within the ITR and CCLI- ASA programs
