Buzz: Activities

Introduction:

The Activities page displays a list of folders which contain a number of pretests, assignments, quizzes and reviews that will need to be completed for this course. This article shows how to access and complete these activities.

Details:

  1. First, expand the left menu (three horizontal bars in top left corner) and choose the name of your course and then Activities from the available options.
  2. Next you will notice that there are two tabs to select.
    1. Activities (selected by default) is separated into three areas, the first displays the last visited activity and the next module to review. The next area is the search field which allows you to enter key words to search for a particular assignment. The last area is the list of activities that will need to be completed in order.
    2. To-do List is a list of activities that are currently due if applicable.
  3. At this point, select the activity to review and/or complete. Check marks represent the activities visited; this does not indicate that the activity has been completed.
    Note: It is highly recommended that students take the pretest for each module. Students who score 60% or higher on each objective in the pretest will test out of the module eliminating the requirement to complete it.

The Activities page is displayed to show the information mentioned above.

Keep up with the latest Michigan Virtual has to offer

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
