Frequently Asked Questions for Faculty
How do I access my online course?
Once you complete the ANGEL 1 2 3 training, you can access your online courses by entering your ANGEL username and password at http://broome.sln.suny.edu . Your course will be listed under your Course Nugget on the ANGEL homepage. Courses listed on your Course Nugget are not automatically available to your students when the semester begins. Instructors are responsible for enabling their courses for student access by the first day of the semester. Step by step instructions on how to enable your course are available through the SUNY Broome Specific Help and How-to’s page.
Can I use my smartphone or iPad to access my online courses?
ANGEL currently does not support mobile browsers for devices such as smartphones, iPods, iPads, etc.
ANGEL 1 2 3 is offered through the Teaching Resource Center on a regular basis. Check the Faculty Training schedule for current offerings and times. All instructors who plan to use ANGEL for supplementing their face to face courses or teaching online must complete the ANGEL 1 2 3 training.

We recommend that faculty back up their course at minimum of every week. Faculty should also consider creating a back up of their course any time they make a substantial change to their course or students have submitted a significant amount of work. Step by step instructions on how to back up your course are available through the SUNY Broome Specific Help and How-to’s .
If you believe something has gone horribly wrong with your online course (content missing, file corruption, etc) and you have a recent back up of your course, you can bring the back to the Teaching Resource Center and an Instructional Designer will assist you with restoring the course files. Please do NOT attempt to restore a back up file to your live course as this could result in a loss of student data.
If you are having difficulty using the online form to retrieve your ANGEL username and password, you should contact BCC Information Technology Services at (607) 778-5011 .
