ANGEL System: We will be using Michigan State University’s course management system ANGEL in order to post grades, assignments and lecture notes, communicate with students, and provide links to critical web sites required for class. ANGEL can be accessed at http://angel.msu.edu . If you have log on problems, you might want to try using https://angel.msu.edu (notice the “s” after the http). A few important tips/notices: 1) ANGEL allows the instructor to track who has entered the site and when, and 2) you may want to change your system setting to make sure mail settings are set to your forwarding address (such as your pilot account, gmail, etc.) and preferred forwarding mode. To do this, click on the Preferences icon in the left margin of ANGEL, choose System Settings and then choose where and how you’d like to have your mail forwarded. Academic Honesty: Academic dishonesty, including plagiarism, will not be tolerated . In cases of academic dishonesty, the official University Policy will be followed and students will be prosecuted to the fullest extent.
