3 ANGEL 7.4 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. Conventions Used in This Manual Typographic conventions used in this manual are as follows: Items in bold represent links, buttons, or fields that appear on the screen. Linked items (online help only) are underlined. This text also features different types of special information: Icon Description Tip: A type of note that helps users apply the techniques and procedures described in the text to their specific needs. A tip suggests an alternative method that might not be obvious and helps users understand the benefits and capabilities of the item. Note: Calls the user's attention to information of special importance. Reference: Refers the user to another source of information. Caution: Advises users of actions that could potentially cause problems. ANGEL Home Page Once you log in to ANGEL, you will be on your Home page. Here is where all of your courses will be listed, as well as any community groups of which you are a member. Power Strip On the left side of the page is a row of vertical buttons called a Power Strip. These buttons will be available to you wherever you are in ANGEL. Copyright 2009 ANGEL Learning. All rights reserved. Page 3 of 33
4 1. Home. This is the Home button that will bring you back to your ANGEL Home page. 2. Help. The Help button opens an online Help manual as well as links to other manuals that can be downloaded and printed. 3. Log off. The Log off button will close your ANGEL session. It is always a good idea to leave ANGEL by using this button instead of closing the window. 4. Personal Preferences. The Preferences button allows you to add any personal information that you want to make available to other ANGEL users, as well as define some system settings, change your password (if allowed by your institution), and change your ANGEL theme. 5. Instant Messenger. The Instant Messenger button allows you to IM other currently online ANGEL users who have also activated an Instant Messenger session. 6. Accessibility. The 508 link allows you to define profiles for accessibility purposes or upload an Accessibility for Learner Information Profile (ACCLIP) file. For example, you could optimize your ANGEL environment for use with a screen reader or define color avoidance preferences. 7. PDA. The Personal Digital Assistant link allows you to activate the PDA display settings so that your ANGEL environment can more easily be used with a PDA or other mobile device. Nuggets All components, including those on the Home page, are called nuggets. Settings for nuggets can be edited by hovering the mouse over the nugget, which then reveals the editing functions for that nugget. The functions available for a specific nugget will vary. Copyright 2009 ANGEL Learning. All rights reserved. Page 4 of 33
5 1. Edit Settings. Click this icon to change settings or to edit the nugget. It is available only on nuggets that have setting or editing functions available. 2. Refresh.

Pop-up window icon detaches the nugget from the page and opens in a pop-up window so the nugget can be available from other ANGEL pages. Home Page Components The following figure shows a typical ANGEL Home page, with the following options: 1. Courses. All your courses in which you are enrolled will be listed here. You will not see your course(s) listed until your instructor or your institution has made it available for you to access. Click the course name to enter that course. 2. Community Groups. A community group can be a club or student organization that has an ANGEL presence. You will see any groups in which you are a member listed here. Click the group name to enter that group. 3.

All rights reserved. Page 5 of 33
6 10. Edit Page. Allows you to add or delete components to your ANGEL Home page, as well as move present components to different columns. Editing Your Personal Information You can edit your personal information stored in ANGEL and can add additional information. This information can be seen by others through use of the People Search link on the Search and Help nugget on the ANGEL Log On page (if available) or on the same nugget within the ANGEL Home page. Users can also see this information if they click the User Profile link on the course roster within an ANGEL course. You can specify who is allowed to view the different types of information. For example, you could make your name available to be viewed by anyone, including non-angel users, but could restrict your address to only be seen users with student rights and higher. 1. To begin, click the Preferences button on the Power Strip. 2. On the next screen, click Personal Information. Copyright 2009 ANGEL Learning. All rights reserved. Page 6 of 33
7 3. Each section of information includes a Viewable By setting that allows you to designate what rights are needed to be able to be viewed by specific user. The Viewable By options are illustrated in the following figure. Everyone. Indicates just that; and also means that non-angel users who may have accessed the information using the People Search option on the Log On page can see this information Authenticated Guest. Persons who have ANGEL accounts and have logged in to ANGEL, but have accessed the information outside of a course or group. It could also refer to persons who have guest rights within a course or group. Students/Members. Student members of a course or group. Team Leaders; Course/Group Mentors; Course/Group Assistants. Anyone within a course or group that has been designated with those rights. Course/Group Editors. Typically these rights are only held by faculty within a course, although sometimes students have these rights within a group. 4. Add any information that you want to share, designating the rights needed to access that information. You do not need to complete every section. 5. The About Me section allows you to use the HTML Editor to format your text and also add pictures and/or links to other websites. This might be used as an introduction to other classmates to add additional information about you. 6. You can also add a picture of yourself. The picture needs to be small; about 200 pixels in width or smaller will work well. If the picture will not upload or you receive an error message when you attempt to upload it, it is Copyright 2009 ANGEL Learning. All rights reserved. Page 7 of 33
8 probably too large. To add a picture, go to the Photo URL section and click the Add button. Click the Browse button on the window that will appear, and navigate and locate the image you want to upload. 7. Click Upload Picture when the file is located and within the Browse window. This picture will not only appear when the User Profile is clicked, but also in mail and any discussion forum posts from this user. In the discussion post in the following figure, the picture displays when users click the student's name on their post in a discussion forum. 8. Save all edits at the bottom of the personal information screen. The following figure shows how the profile will appear to a fellow classmate within a course. Copyright 2009 ANGEL Learning. All rights reserved. Page 8 of 33
9 The following figure shows how it will appear to the instructor of the course. (Note that the instructor can see Karen's work phone number, but the classmate cannot because of the way that the student designated who could see that information.) Elements of an ANGEL Course A course in ANGEL is divided into six sections: Course, Calendar, Lessons, Resources, Communicate, and Report. Your institution and individual instructors do have the ability to customize courses, so your own courses may differ somewhat from what is described here. Course Page The Course page is the Home page for the course. The nuggets within this page may vary by institution and instructor. The following figure shows a typical layout for the Course page. 1. Navigation tabs. The Navigation tabs for each section. 2. Map. The Map is located on the left side of the screen and is opened and closed via a handle in the upper right. You can open and close the Map as needed. The Map offers several useful navigational views of your course. Each view option is discussed below: Map. Allows you to navigate to any section or content item within the course, group, or repository. The view can be expanded and collapsed. Copyright 2009 ANGEL Learning. All rights reserved. Page 9 of 33
10 What's New. Displays any new items that have been completed, such as new discussion forum posts, new content items added, new mail, new drop box assignments to be graded, and new assessments to be graded. Tasks. Displays any items that need attention, such as unread mail, ungraded items, and unread discussion forums Search. Allows you to search your course content, calendar, mail, or roster and quickly browse the search results. Design Help. Provides tips and techniques for best using ANGEL's content tools. About.

Whenever you enter your course, check to be sure you read any new announcements. 6. Your Grade. Shows your current grade by category. Because this student has just begun the course, she does not yet have a course grade. 7. Identity bubble. Displays your name. Clicking the down arrow at the end of the label will open up a list of all of your current courses and groups and allow you to navigate to one of these without having to return your ANGEL Home page. Calendar Your instructor may use the calendar to display important dates for the course. The calendar can display in either a Grid View (1) or List (2) View. Lessons The Lessons section is where the bulk of the course activity will take place. The Lessons content items are usually organized within folders. Content items may include assignment drop boxes, discussion forums, assessments (quizzes, tests, exams), blogs, wikis, surveys, links to other websites, and (of course) documents. The following figure shows the main Lessons page with the (1) Orientation Module folder and the opened (2) Orientation Module folder with the content items contained within it. A folder is opened by clicking it. Copyright 2009 ANGEL Learning. All rights reserved. Page 10 of 33

It can be customized by institutions and instructors to include other components. Copyright 2009 ANGEL Learning. All rights reserved. Page 11 of 33
12 Communicate Page Communication nuggets are located within the Communicate page. These nuggets commonly include Course Mail, Course News and Events, Discussion Forums, and Live Office Hours. Other nuggets, such as Live Chat, may also be added by the institution or instructor. Report Page The Report section contains the Reports Console, which allows you to run a variety of reports that are based on your own course activity and data, including your grade report. Navigating Within a Course After selecting your course, the navigation options are similar to those on the main Home page, but with some additions that are covered in this section.
