help logoLON-CAPA Help

On many LON-CAPA pages, you will see one or more small blue circles (each with a white question mark inside) . These blue circles are links to relevant help documentation. Each LON-CAPA help page also includes a search box, in which you can enter keyword(s) to search all LON-CAPA help documents.

Also, a Help link is available in the upper right. This help page provides links to the course manual (from within a course) or the author manual (from the authoring space) and provides both an online version and pdf version. You may wish to save a pdf version of each so that you can reference the help for one role while working in the other role. The help page also provides a link to request help from the LON-CAPA help desk and a link to report bugs (Course Coordinators and Authors only). In some cases you may also see a green square containing a white question mark alongside the text: "FAQ". This provides a link to relevant help item in the user-contributed documentation found in the LON-CAPA FAQ-o-matic system.
