This seems like a rather elementary but puzzling problem. If an instructor wants to online office hours via Angel for all their classes (in this case 4), is there an easy way to do it? We've come up with three ways, and none of them are very good...
1. Using 4 separate browser windows
2. Creating a merged section with all four classes
3. Using breeze instead (this is problematic because of the lack of a queueing system )
I figured I couldn't be the only one to run into this conundrum. Any thoughts or ideas?
Previously in ANGEL, an instructor could send an email out to the class, and see who opened it and when. I do not see that option in 7.3. Is it still there somewhere?
Two frustrating things about ANGEL's new mail setup:
1.) Adding address to the "To:" I use computers with fairly small screen (1024x768 and 1024x600), so the flash pop-up address adding window often has the bottom of that window (with the all important "Okay" button) hidden from view. Clicking on it gives me the ability to move it, but not resize it to my screen area. Since I can't drag it higher than the banner, this doesn't help.
2.) When I look at the emails I sent, they are *not* word wrapped. I have to horizontally scroll quite a way to read a long paragraph. Is this a formatting error on my part?
Does anyone have any suggestions for handling peer evaluations in Angel?
Information Technology Services (ITS) has canceled the ANGEL upgrade to version 7.2 originally scheduled for the weekend of July 19. Testing and analysis of 7.2 indicated that the new version (and some features) may not perform robustly in our environment, and for this reason we will remain at 7.1 for the next year. During this time frame, ITS staff will work closely with the ANGEL vendor to optimize a future release to meet the needs of the growing Penn State user environment. ITS will provide periodic updates to the user community throughout the coming year.
I know that Angel system can automatically group students into teams based on their response to a survey but don't know how to write the action scripts. Also, looks like I can only add action scripts at the survey level but not question level.
Does anyone know the action scripts? Thanks.
For example, I want the system to assign students choosing answer A to team one and those choosing answer B to team two.
Q: What do you prefer for your supper tonight?
Why doesn't an icon (new posts) show on my profile page when a student adds content to a discussion forum? This feature worked great in version 6.?
Without this icon, I must drill-down into the content of each course to know that a new post has been added I have not read.
Will this be corrected in v 7.2??
