ANGEL 8.0 Student QuickStart Tutorial

This guide is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of ANGEL and its primary tools.

ANGEL is a web-based course management and collaboration portal that enables educators to manage course materials and to communicate with students. ANGEL can function both as a complement to traditional courses and as a site for distance learning.

With ANGEL, you can take surveys, quizzes, and tests; send and receive course mail; post messages to threaded discussions and chat rooms; upload assignments using online drop boxes; and more. You can check your progress and grades at any time during a course. You can also create groups and teams for project or committee work.

A significant portion of ANGEL's power lies in its capability to be tailored to specific institutional needs. Please note that because your institution determines which tools are made accessible, some parts of this guide might not apply to your use of ANGEL. Contact your institution's support desk if you have questions regarding ANGEL administration.
