Taking your first online credit course?
All students enrolled in courses using the learning management system, ANGEL, will have access to an online orientation. The orientation introduces you to the tools and features of the LMS, as well as provides you with tips and strategies for being successful in the online environment. On the first day of class, access your course and click on the Orientation tab in the upper right hand corner of your course homepage.
First-time online students are automatically "enrolled" in the online orientation, and will have access to it early through MyAACC. To access the orientation, click on the My Courses tab and click on the Virtual Campus Student Orientation title to open the orientation. To best be prepared for your online course, complete the orientation prior to your online course start date.
