Frequently Asked Questions in ANGEL



When can I log in?
You will be able to log into ANGEL and access your courses about 5 days before the semester begins (you will receive an email in Pipeline from the Director of Instructional Technology with specific details regarding class, orientation, etc. ) Those who enroll less than a week before classes begin will receive an email in Pipeline with login information within 24 business hours after enrolling.

How do I log in?
(See it here! )

There are two ways to get to the ANGEL log on page.
  • The Butler homepage has a link called Online Course Login (near the top of the page) that will take you to the log on page.
  • OR go there directly by entering the web address: http://webcourses.butlercc.edu

Once there, enter your ANGEL username and password. It is the same as for your Pipeline account. Now click Log On.
The next page displays links to your classes (online, blended & web enhanced courses in which you are enrolled for the current semester.)

How to I print pages from ANGEL?

To print in ANGEL:

  • Place your cursor on the page you want to print and click CTRL A to select everything on the page
    OR click and drag with your mouse to highlight the portion of the page you wish to print.
  • Press CTRL P or select File>Print on the toolbar menu. The Print Dialog box opens.
  • In the Print Range field, check the radio button next to Selection.
  • Click Print.

Why is my username and password not working?
Pipeline requires users to change their password every 90 days (remember your Pipeline and ANGEL information are the same). Your password has probably expired. Go back to Pipeline and reset the password. Follow the instructions for resetting the password or contact the Butler Help Desk by email (helpdesk@butlercc.edu) or phone 322-3306 or 733-3306 (Wichita metro area). Clear your browser's cache or history, just to make sure the browser does not remember the old password. The new Pipeline password will now work in ANGEL.

Your reply will appear indented and below the message to which you replied.

Why am I getting ANGEL discussion messages in Pipeline?
You have probably subscribed to one or more discussions in ANGEL (perhaps by accident). All new posts to those discussions are then copied to your Pipeline account. If you do not want to receive these messages, find the discussion listing in the Communicate tab or wherever the instructor has linked to the specific discussion board. Find and click the 'Unsubscribe' link. It should be located just below the title of the discussion. (If you decide to stay subscribed, reply to the messages inside ANGEL only, not in Pipeline. )

 

How do I review answers an comments in my tests?(See it here! )
To review tests you have taken, and that have been graded, you must go to the original test item, not the Reports/Grades tab. Click on the test item just like you would if you were taking the test. You will see a link with the date of the test. Click on this link. The information available including the time is dependent on the individual instructor.
