Michigan Virtual to release new Student Learning Portal on Tuesday, April 24
LANSING, MI — On Tuesday, April 24, Michigan Virtual™ will be celebrating the release of the Michigan Virtual Student Learning Portal, which will replace CEMS as their primary enrollment system. The impetus for this change comes from consistent feedback from customers. The new portal will provide a better user experience by offering a more straightforward enrollment process, more immediate data and improved communication tools.
Further benefits of the new system include:
- The user interface is sleek and intuitive
Most importantly, this interface gives more control to the schools who are managing online enrollments.
- The enrollment process is straightforward
Users simply select the student, the class section and the start date. Further, bulk enrollments are now possible, and enrollers will receive on-screen confirmation that their enrollments have been successful.
- Student progress will be updated daily
Student progress data will be more up-to-date with accurate pacing information based on the student’s term. Further, guardians will now have direct access to student progress data.
- The new system offers improved communication tools
Both instructors and mentors will now be able to communicate directly with their students in the portal.
- Certificates of completion are readily accessible
Guardians will benefit from this change, as it will be much easier for them to share student completion information with schools.
Starting with 2018 online summer courses, all future enrollments will take place in the Michigan Virtual Student Learning Portal. Users will retain access to CEMS until Friday, June 29 in order to complete their current courses, but are strongly encouraged to downloaded any needed course certificates or enrollment data before this date in preparation for the system change.
For those who still need to access course certificates or enrollment data after Friday, June 29, the Customer Care Center will be able to provide this information. Customer Care can be reached by phone at 888.889.2840, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
