ANGEL, A New Global Environment for Learning, is a new and robust course management system (CMS). Developed by CyberLearning Labs in collaboration with university and business partners, ANGEL responds to needs of students, instructors, and technology support personnel. ANGEL incorporates the best of CMSs that came before it while being extremely easy-to-use and very flexible. Its widespread adoption within less than a year of its implementation at Penn State -- 47,000 individual students, 1800 instructors, and 5000 course sections -- is an indication of its enthusiastic acceptance. ANGEL has all the basic features such as syllabus, lessons space, teams, discussion, quizzing, surveys, drop boxes, and grade report along with unique faculty tools to track student work and transform learning processes. This session will provide a demonstration of many ANGEL features that are used to engage learners in resident or distance education in any discipline at any level.
