Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  How do I activate a course in ANGEL?
A:  After you have logged into ANGEL, you will see a list of your courses in the My Courses section, organized by semester. Courses that have not yet been activated will appear "grayed out". Click on Settings for the course you want to activate, then select No from the drop-down menu next to Course Disabled. Click Save.

 

Q:  How do I forward my ANGEL e-mail to my PSU account?  
A:  On your My Profile page, click the Preferences (wrench) icon, then select the System Settings link. In the Mail Settings section, enter your forwarding e-mail address in the Forwarding Address field. Next, choose "Forward my course mail and keep as new in course" for the forwarding mode. Click Save.

 

 

Q:  How do I post a syllabus for my course? 
A:  There are three options in ANGEL for including a syllabus for your course:

  • If you already have a syllabus posted on another web site (e.g., your PSU personal web site), you will enter the URL of the syllabus in the External Link field on the syllabus settings tab and save that selection as the syllabus file you want to use. Click here for the full instructions from ANGEL.
  • If you have your own syllabus file that you would like to use (e.g., one you created in MS Word), you can upload the file by following the Upload/Manage Syllabus Files link on the Syllabus tab. Click here for the full instructions from ANGEL.
  • You can create a syllabus using the ANGEL Syllabus Editor form. It is found on the Syllabus tab under the Edit Syllabus link in the toolbar. Click here for the full instructions from ANGEL.

 

Q:  How do I copy a course in ANGEL to another course in ANGEL?
A:  If the course you want to copy is still active in ANGEL, you can copy it using the Copy Course utility under the Import Wizard on the Manage tab in the course you want to copy into. Click here for the full instructions from ANGEL.
 
If the course you want to copy is a previous course that was exported, select the Content Package link under the Import Wizard on the Manage tab in the course you want to copy into. Click here for the full instructions from ANGEL.

Q:  How do I save a course in ANGEL to use in another course later? 
A:  Courses in ANGEL are available for one year after completion. If you have a course you might want to use after that timeframe, it is possible to export a copy of your course in a zip file that you can then import later into another course. To do so, use the Export Wizard under the PSU Data Management section on the Manage tab of the course, and select ANGEL Archive. Click here for the full instructions from ANGEL. The file will be downloaded to your computer.
