Information for Faculty and Staff

LON-CAPA is one of the course management and learning support systems used at Michigan State University. Its development started in 1992 by faculty here on campus in the Cyclotron Lab, and initially, the system was only used for physics.

Today, we offer LON-CAPA free of charge for courses and communities campus-wide. The system is fully integrated into MSU's campus IT-infrastructure, so for example your classlists are kept up to date, users can use their MSUNetIDs, and your exams can get scanned directly into the system. LON-CAPA includes all standard features of other course management systems in addition to having one of the most powerful assessment engines currently available.
