			<tex content="We hope by now you're as excited as we are about the system. LON-CAPA
is really powerful and good for both students and instructors, and
you can't beat the bang-for-the-buck.

Now you know what LON-CAPA is all about, let's start looking at the
internals to see how we do all this great stuff." />

	<section name="Resources Overview">
		<tex content="In a nutshell, LON-CAPA is all about bringing learning \textbf{resources} and \textbf{people} together with \textbf{technology}. Thus, the best way to understand the system is to understand how it models learning resources, how it understand people, and last (and really, least importantly) what technology supports it." />

		<subsection name="Courses">
			<tex content="The end result of all of this assembly is an actual course that students can participate in." />
			<tex content="Courses are themselves sequences that tell the system what the course consists of. Course instructors or administrators can manipulate this sequence through the use of the Course Documents screen; see the Course Documents Screen chapter in the Course Management Manual (http://msu.loncapa.org/adm/help/course.manual.pdf) for more detailed information about that." />
			<pod file="../rat/lonuserstate.pm" section="OVERVIEW/.+" h1level='2' />
			<subsubsection name="Sections">
				<tex content='LON-CAPA fully supports the idea of "sections" in a course. Roles can be assigned to specific sections, allowing you to create Teaching Assisstants or Instructors that have power only over students in their section, and directly recieve student feedback from their corresponding students. As discussed in the next section, assignments parameters such as due dates can be set by section, which is extremely helpful in very large courses with tens of sections.' />
