You have heard the rumors, now see the reality. Over the next academic year MCC will be converting to a new course management system. This Brown Bag Orientation Session will preview the ANGEL CMS. This session will cover the major functions, look and feel, course management and administrative capabilities, and the training and conversion plan for the next academic year. We will also have faculty in our current ANGEL pilot there to answer your questions. If you are currently teaching in SLN or CourseSpace, or are interested in someday teaching online, come see the future.
