ANGEL Tip of the Day #7 & #8 - Two Mac Tips

ANGEL Tip of the Day #7 & #8 - Two Mac Tips

The Mac browser Safari does not play well with ANGEL. However, it can be deceiving, since most ANGEL features work just fine. Students sometimes have trouble with discussion boards and attachments. Recommend that your Mac users use the ANGEL supported browser Firefox.

If students have trouble submitting attachments, ask if they are using a Mac. Older Mac programs do not always add file extensions (i.e. “.doc” or “.ppt”). This confuses ANGEL. Not knowing what the file is, it simply rejects the file and does not tell the user. Suggest that Mac users add file extensions (they can also set programs to do this automatically).
