Kirkwood is transitioning from Angel Learning system to Talon. A few courses are piloting the new Talon system for Spring 2015. More courses will join in Summer 2015 and everyone will make the change for Fall 2015. During Spring and Summer, courses may appear in either system - check with your instructor to be sure you are accessing the appropriate website.

The eLearning system at Kirkwood is powered by Angel Learning - a suite of online tools that facilitate online learning. Instructors in face-to-face courses often deliver materials and extend your learning with Angel. Most online courses take advantage of the organization and interaction the software delivers to create a positive and supported learning environment.

  • Regular maintenance scheduled: 12-6am, 2nd Sunday of every month.
  • Resetting your password can often fix login issues.

Talon (Teaching and Learning Online) is powered by D2L's Brightspace platform. The tools are powerful and easy to use and provide interactive online learning opportunities for students and instructors. Both online students and face-to-face students will use the system to access course materials, activities and often current grades.
