ANGEL 1-2-3 ONLINE is the fully online equivalent of our face-to-face ANGEL 1-2-3 Training series. Like the face-to-face training series, ANGEL 1-2-3 ONLINE is an introduction to using the ANGEL course management system for instructors teaching online or supplementing their face-to-face course with an online component. It provides an overview of the ANGEL environment with hands-on opportunity to try out the various ANGEL tools, such as adding content, assignments, quizzes, and discussion forums. Training will also cover how to set up and use the ANGEL Gradebook and discuss other tools for course management. Participants will leave with a solid understanding of the basics of ANGEL so they can begin the course development process.
The online workshop is self-paced and allows faculty to complete modules and activities as they have time. The course is monitored by an Instructional Designer and requires faculty to complete work, not only in the main ANGEL 1-2-3 course (in which they have the role of a student), but in a practice course shell (where they have Instructor/Course Editor access). Check-in points and ANGEL tools are used to verify comprehension of the material and control the opening of lessons as each area is mastered.
Once faculty have completed the requirements of the course, they will receive a certificate equivalent to attending the face-to-face training offered through the Teaching Resource Center.
To register, please contact the Teaching Resource Center at 778-5611 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please email email@example.com to register. Please state what class, dates and times you are registering for. A confirmation email of your registration will be returned.
Seats are limited and reserved on a first come first served basis!
Agents are tools within the ANGEL LMS that can be programmed to automatically complete a task for the instructor at a specified date/time or upon specified student activity. Agent training will focus on three of the automations available within ANGEL: unlock, team enroll/unenroll, and email. The unlock agent is used to prevent students from accessing specific course content (Gateway Activities). The team enroll/unenroll agent can be used to simplify and customize team enrollment. And the email agent can be utilized to target at-risk students
ANGEL Advanced: Agents will be offered in a 1-hour time format to faculty who have completed the ANGEL Training 1-2-3 series.
Angel offers additional formats for conducting discussions beyond the standard discussion forum. These can incorporate many of the techniques employed in face to face classrooms such as role playing and Socratic discussion method. This training demonstrates how to use these different types of discussions, and under what circumstances, in order to enhance student interaction and content acquisition.
ANGEL Advanced: Discussions will be offered in a 1-hour time format to faculty who have completed the ANGEL Training 1-2-3 series.
This workshop will cover the types of ANGEL Reports that instructors can select for tracking log-in activity and identifying and communicating with students who are falling behind in participation or have low course performance. Specifically, we will demonstrate which reports best present the information necessary for the attendance reporting requirement in MyCollege.
ANGEL Advanced: Teams will focus on the different ways to create and utilize teams (or groups) within the ANGEL course management system. ANGEL teams can facilitate student discussion of content, sharing of ideas, and solving problems with a smaller number of students, which can lead to more in-depth analysis and improved interaction. Creation of teams for students that need extra time on assignments or exams will also be covered. ANGEL Advanced: Teams will be offered in a 1-hour time format to faculty who have completed the ANGEL Training 1-2-3 series.
ANGEL Advanced: Rubrics will focus on creating and effectively utilizing drop-box/offline item grading rubrics within ANGEL. A Rubric is a tool that lists the criteria for an assignment, providing clear, concise, and quantifiable standards for both the student and instructor. Rubrics are used to define “quality”, help students judge and revise their work prior to submission, and simplify and objectify the grading process for the instructor. This training session will cover the creation of a rubric and the use of that rubric within your ANGEL course.
When: Thursday, February 14th, 11am-Noon, TRC Lab
Hosted by: Carine Surdey & Jamie Heron-Starr
Managing your Online Course is a review of how to effectively grade, utilize the gradebook, and access student data via reports using the new ANGEL course management system. This training will cover how to grade discussions, assignments, and essay/short answer assignments and how to ensure these grades are accurately presented in the gradebook. Training will also include higher-order uses of the gradebook not covered in the original ANGEL Training 1-2-3 series. Finally, this training will provide a synopsis of the various reports that can be utilized to determine student participation and pin-point students who are at-risk. Participants will leave with a more complete understanding of the course management potential of the ANGEL course management system. ANGEL Advanced: Managing your Online Course will be offered in a 1-hour time format to faculty who have completed the ANGEL Training 1-2-3 series.
