The LearningOnline Network with CAPA
|Home > Installation > CAPA Upgrade|
If you have been running "classic" CAPA and would like to upgrade to LON-CAPA ... well, there really is no upgrade: CAPA and LON-CAPA are different systems, and you might be best served by installing a fresh operating system and the latest version of LON-CAPA from scratch.
Also, LON-CAPA needs significantly more computing power than CAPA, so a new piece of hardware might also be needed.
However, you might want to transfer your CAPA problem libraries between the systems. If your library mainly consists of textbook problems or problem libraries from MSU, FSU, Ohio U, SC, or ELPS, you likely don't need to bother, since those have been translated already and are available in the LON-CAPA network.
If you have your own problems, here's a way to translate them between the systems:
We would suggest to first learn about LON-CAPA by creating and editing some problems in LON-CAPA to get a sense of how it works - we did hopefully improve things and make things easier in the change.
That being said the conversion programs can be gotten here:
need to compile the included program, this should just require running
After running make, there should be a Linux directory and the program convert in there.
Oftentimes you have entire libraries of resources. Included
in the tarball is the subdirectory
Please let us know how we can assist in the conversion.
