ANGEL 8 Upgrade (Unavailable 5/21)

ANGEL will not be available on Monday, May 21, 2012 from 6 am - 6 pm, while we are upgrade to ANGEL 8. Faculty and students will notice only minor differences with this newer version of ANGEL.
 
We are upgrading primarily because ANGEL 8 offers us the best future migration path to Blackboard. However, ANGEL 8 also offers us a few enhancements as well:
  • Chrome and Safari are now supported browsers, in addition to Internet Explorer and Firefox.
  • Grading rubrics can be applied to Discussion Forums.
  • Faculty can configure a Dropbox, so students can see it, without being able to submit to it until a specified date/time range.
  • Students can mark an assessment question for Review, and quickly return to that marked question to answer it.
We've prepared two short videos (one for faculty and one for students) demonstrating these new features of ANGEL 8:
