LON-CAPA at UIUCWelcome to LON-CAPA at UIUC! We will be using a new platform, LON-CAPA, or The Lecture Online Network with Computer-Assisted Personalized Approach, in your Chemistry course. The software was officially piloted in MCB during Spring 2005. The program itself is a combination of learning assessment tools with course management capabilities. You may use LON-CAPA this semester to access and complete assignments, like pre-lab and post-lab questions, and for exams, in addition to using many other features the system supports.
Access Instructions:In order to use log into LON-CAPA you must have a username and a password. Your username is your UIUC NetID. The password for LON-CAPA will have to be established by setting up an Active Directory (AD) password with CITES. To set up your Active Directory password visit the following site:
Click on the “Change PASSWORD” box to set up your password if you haven’t already used Active Directory. You will then need to enter your NetID and your Bluestem password. Set up your Active Directory password (please make a note of it to avoid forgetting it later!). Once you have created an AD password visit our LON-CAPA website at:
however LON-CAPA is also fully functional without the Remote Control by using the inline menu that can be accessed at the top of the screen.
Browsers:LON-CAPA functions using all common and current web browsers, like Mozilla, Netscape, and Internet Explorer on PCs. On Macs, Netscape should work, however, some problems have been reported about Internet Explorer on this platform. Netscape and Mozilla will work well on Linux.
