Please note the recent call for proposals for the April 14 Penn State Symposium for Teaching and Learning with Technology at:
On Jan. 9 I interviewed Allan Gyorke and Jeff Swain, fellow members of the ANGEL support team, about new features in 7.1 for an upcoming article. They suggested podcasting our discussion; however in the Myers-Briggs system I score as 100% introverted. :) However, I have transcribed highlights of the interview to share. See attached.
I have just added Internet Explorer Version 7 and ANGEL: Issues and Recommendations to the online ANGEL Help & Information Guide. We will be sending an announcement out on this shortly.
Following is an edited version of the Course Gradebook Quick-Start Guide in the standard format for ANGEL documentation, both as PDF and HTML. Included are:
PDF 168.3 KB
When you have implemented the Gradebook in your course, you can enter grades either within the Gradebook or, as has always been the case, within the individual content item's Utilities.
My testing reveals that if you grade submissions within the individual item's Utilities, and only afterward decide to include the item as a Gradebook assignment, those formerly assigned grades do not show up in the Gradebook.
You can, of course, enter the grades a second time in the Gradebook. However, if you perchance enter a different grade for a submission than you did the first time, you will see two different grades, depending on whether you are viewing grades in the Gradebook or the item's Utilities. They will not be synchronized.
The Course Gradebook documentation is now available within ANGEL help at:
For a print-friendly PDF of the documentation:
1. Within ANGEL, select the Help link.
2. On the right, click ITS Training Services Seminars.
3. Select the Get Seminar Handouts link.
4. Next to Using the ANGEL Course Gradebook, select PDF.
As of today the option to use the Course Gradebook is available to all faculty when they go to the settings screen to enable a new course.
