New to ANGEL The New to ANGEL workshop is designed to familiarize faculty with ANGEL and introduce basic course building functionality. In this workshop, participants will learn to: navigate around the course site, add different types of content, organize content in folders, and enable the course for student access.

With classes starting this week, we wanted to invite you to share your teaching strategies with each other around getting students started in your courses successfully and building a course community. What are some strategies that you employ to ensure that students start your course on the right track? How do you use ice breakers to develop a course community so you and your students can get to know each other?
