I'm not a student and I haven't taken an online class through Angel, but we use it here and I've played around in it a bit. If you'd like to give my contact info to the student, I'll see if I can help.

The only part of Angel that I did not play in is the chat room. I pretty much figured it would not be accessible and we have like one or two instructors who use it as an optional part of the course. It really isn't a big issue here, but I wish they would make it accessible.

I have student who is a fairly proficient JAWS user and is struggling with her first online course. She can't figure out how to get all of the features in Angel to work using JAWS. Specifically, she is having trouble figuring out how to exit the discussion window once she types a response.

Does anyone have a student who uses JAWS and is taking or has taken an online course in Angel that I can put my student in touch with to get a few tips. She isn't the type of student who would take advantage of the help and be a nuisance. She just needs a few quick tips on how to use some of the features.

Thank you.
