I Add LINKS to My Angel Course Site?

the instruction session. This would permit more time during the
instruction session to focus on specific library resources.

a summary of questions answered right or wrong and an overall
percentage score for that module. The results pages can be printed
out with the student’s name at the top and submitted to you as proof
of completion. You could consider giving extra credit to students who complete LINKS.
