Course shells for fall 2017 are now available in Canvas. There will be no course shells in ANGEL for fall. The last day to teach in ANGEL is August 11, and the last day for direct access to ANGEL content is October 31. Faculty and staff who have courses in ANGEL are urged to export a copy of their ANGEL content and/or move them now to Canvas http://bit.do/exportANGELcourse.
To find your course shells, log into Canvas at psu.instructure.com (or click on the yellow “Canvas login” button on the canvas.psu.edu home page) and then click the Courses button on the left navigation bar on the Canvas dashboard.
