    the class.

How to Access ANGEL Online, Web-Enhanced and
Hybrid courses (Continued)
I logged into ANGEL, but one or more of my
classes are missing. What should I do?There are
several instances when this might happen
The first instance is when your instructor has
not opened up the class for your use. Email your
instructor if it is an online class, or speak
with your instructor at your next class meeting,
and check on the status of the missing class(es).
The second instance is when your
instructor does not use ANGEL with your class. If
you think you are supposed to have access to a
course on ANGEL that is associated with your
on-campus course, please contact your instructor
for the status. The third instance is
when you are not registered for the class. Please
confirm with your instructor and/or student
services that you are registered for the class.
I have never used ANGEL before. Is there
something that I can read to help me get
started?There is an excellent document entitled
"ANGEL Student Quick Start Guide" You can access

Understanding Your Course Schedule
65
Course Schedule Options
Lecture Course -- Lecture courses are traditional
classroom courses. Hybrid Course -- Hybrid
courses are taught partially via the Internet and
partially via the classroom. Hybrid courses
differ from web-enhanced courses in that
web-enhanced courses are assigned to a classroom
for every contact hour described in the course
catalog. Online Course -- Online courses are
taught using the Internet with the bulk of the
course content, activities and interactions
occurring online. Online courses may require an
on-site component and that component must be
detailed in the course catalog. Web-Enhanced
Course -- Web-enhanced courses are traditional
classroom courses that use the Internet as an
important component of the course. The web-based
component of the course supports classroom
instruction and may require students to use the
Internet in order to interact with one another
and the instructor, to review content, do
research, complete and/or submit assignments, or
take tests. Typical web-enhanced courses will
include several of the following elements
online Syllabus, Calendar, Readings,
Resources, Bibliography, Glossary, Links to
Professional Organizations, Current News,
Lecture Notes, Listserv, Discussion Board, Tests
