Default Inline Menu

By default, LON-CAPA is controlled by a combination of the Inline Menu and the Main Menu. The Inline Menu will appear at the top of every page in LON-CAPA. Click on the Main Menu link within the Inline Menu to access the Main Menu.

Remote Control

LON-CAPA also offers a Remote Control menu. The Remote Control is a separate pop-up browser window, and is automatically sized and placed in the upper left of the screen. To enable and experiment with the Remote Control menu, navigate to: Main Menu > My Space > Set my user preferences > Content Display Settings > Launch Remote Control. To exit from the remote, either close the window, or look for the inline menu command to exit on the upper right of the parent browser window.

Hints for each button appear when hovering over the buttons. Click the words Extended Display immediately above the remote command display to obtain a list of hints.
