New LMS, Canvas, replaces Angel 

​​During summer 2014, a select number of courses were delivered or enhanced with the new Canvas LMS that will replace Angel by spring 2015. During the current fall 2014 term, more classes have made the transition from Angel to Canvas. The transition will end in December 2014, and all courses will be utilizing Canvas beginning in January 2015. Learn more about the transition to Canvas.

Check out a preview of the Canvas LMS in this Canvas Overview video. If you are a faculty member, you can find more information at the Teaching & Learning Center site.

What is meant by online and hybrid?

Online course: A course in which 100 percent of the content/instruction and graded assignments are delivered in an online format such as the ANGEL or Canvas course management system via the web. An online course may be completed without the student coming to KCC’s campus. Online courses feature regular and substantive interaction between the students and instructor. Test/Assessments will be online but may require the presence of a pre-approved proctor. Also see the note regarding technology requirements, below.

Hybrid course: In a hybrid course, instruction/content is a combination of face-to-face and other (often online) means. Generally, 30 percent or more of the instruction/content is offered online or off-campus. Face-to-face meetings at prescribed KCC locations are required. These meetings might include classroom instruction, laboratory instruction, tests, clinical and other activities such as presentations. When possible, face-to-face meeting dates listed in the printed class schedule.

Technology requirements

Students enrolled in online and hybrid courses must be prepared to read assignments, ask and answer questions, participate in discussions, and take tests online. Enrollment in online and hybrid courses requires a reliable Internet connection (a high-speed connection is preferable) and the student must have the skills to understand basic computing, email, word processing and Internet navigation.
