Adding content To sum things up... You can add just about any kind of content you want to your class on ANGEL. The steps are very similar for folders, files, drop boxes, and links. While this may seem overwhelming at first, keep in mind that once the materials are there, you will be able to use them over and over again. Once you have some content added, we will take a look at how to make different material available to students at different times. ANGEL training
