A Town Hall session via an Adobe Connect desktop videoconference is scheduled for Wed., Oct. 3 from 9:00-11:00 a.m. Due to technical difficulties during the Town Hall that took place Sept. 11, some attendees at a distance were unable to “connect.” The new session scheduled on the 3rd will allow those persons, plus any other interested ANGEL users, another opportunity to participate. A Town Hall is an open discussion facilitated by ANGEL support staff within ITS, where in-depth exploration of all the new version 7.1 tools and features takes place, with time available at the end for questions and answers. To register, visit http://its.psu.edu/training/ and select “Register for Training.” The URL for the Adobe Connect meeting is the same as that for previous Town Halls, https://breeze.psu.edu/angeltownhall/.
Faculty members at University Park who would like one-on-one tutoring on teaching, learning, and class management tools can apply to have a technology-savvy student help them acquire computer skills on a range of topics.
Faculty and support staff are cordially invited to attend the next ANGEL Town Hall on Tuesday, September 11 from 1:00-3:30 p.m.
I just thought it was interesting that on August 22, for the first time since May 19 when version 7.1 went live, there were over 1,000 visitors to the ANGEL Help & Information Guide knowledgebase in one day. Now, should I consider that a good thing or a bad thing? :)
Folders on the Lessons tab don’t perhaps radiate the glamour of some other ANGEL features, but can be key in organizing course content and guiding students to the items they need. Article 1181 Folders: General Information in the Help & Information Guide describes several different approaches, including arranging content chronologically, by type, or by topic.
Please share with the community the ways in which you have used folders. How do you arrange your content? Do you use a different approach for different courses? How many levels deep do you place subfolders within folders?
Faculty who use or plan to use Penn State's Course Management System, ANGEL (http://cms.psu.edu/), are encouraged to take advantage of several upcoming opportunities to learn more about ANGEL.
