Welcome to Online Education
at SUNY Cobleskill
Online education at SUNY Cobleskill provides you the opportunity to meet real instructors on ANGEL Course Management System (ANGEL) through the Internet. When you take a class online, you'll receive the same high-quality instruction, technology support, and accreditation as you would in a traditional classroom. Instructions on how to use ANGEL can be found on this page: ANGEL Basics.
Starting Spring 2014 both ANGEL and Moodle are serving as the course management systems at Cobleskill to prepare for ANGEL to phase out by June. Although ANGEL will be fully replaced by Moodle as SUNY Cobleskill's Course Management System in June 2014, Summer 2014 courses will be operating on Moodle. Instructions for students on how to use Moodle can be found by using this link: Moodle Guide for Students.
Generally speaking, online courses are convenient and flexible. They teach students not only life-long learning techniques but also self-discipline skills. However, online courses may not be the best choice for everyone. Please check the Frequently Asked Questions for online learning to see if you're ready to take courses online.
