Important End of Semester ANGEL Tasks

As you near the end of your semester there are a few IMPORTANT things you might want to consider.

First, it is always a good idea to create a backup of your ANGEL gradebook. 
  • Go to the Manage tab in your ANGEL course. 
  • Click Gradebook.  
  • Click Print Grades (on the left side of the page). 
  • Here you can change a number of things.  I usually increase the font size to 12 so it is easier to read.  
  • Click Generate PDF.  This will create a PDF document that you can print or save to either your computer or flashdrive.  
  • Click Done.  
That’s it!  You will now have a copy of the grades for that course.

Next, as outlined in the NSCC ANGEL Course Archive Policy, we have begun the process of archiving older ANGEL course sites and removing them from the ANGEL server.

A course will remain active on the production server for only one academic year from the end date of a given term.

If you would like to retain these course sites for a longer period of time, you have the option of generating your own archive and there are several available options for storage, including:
  • Your P: Drive network folder (only accessible on campus)
  • Your Google Drive, accessible through the your  NSCC email account
  • A personal storage medium, i.e. USB drive, portable hard disk, computer, CD
  • External cloud storage solutions, available at little to no cost (such as Dropbox or SkyDrive)
Please click on the active link listed below for directions on archiving your course.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at angel@northshore.edu.
