MOCC: Course Review – Vendor

Introduction:

Third party courses are also subject to the Model Review Process for Online Courses. Once this review is complete, results of the review will be published to the Michigan’s Online Course Catalog. The inherent benefit for districts who wish to create offerings using third party provider syllabi is that this review is already completed and in place at the point of a catalog offering creation, and will not have to be conducted a second time.

Details:

  1. First, select the Course Management tab.
  2. Next, click the “Yes” or “No” link within the Review column for the selected syllabus.
    Note: Course offerings will only appear to public users searching the Local District and Statewide catalogs where the course review contains all 52 ratings. Once the ratings have been applied, the Review Completed column on the Search Course page will change from “No” to “Yes”.
    Screen capture of the Search Course page with an arrow pointing to the No text within the No column of a course row.
  3. Then use the drop-down fields to apply a rating to a standard and in the Comments box for any clarifying text.
    Screen capture of the Update Course page with the Content tab selected and the grid showing course standards. An arrow points to the Continue button at the top of the page.
    Note: The “Apply Rating to All” drop-down menu can be used to fill all of the drop-downs below with the same rating.
  4. Next, select the appropriate option within the fields and then select the Continue button.
  5. Then continue through the Instructional Design, Student Assessment, Technology, and the Course Evaluation and
    Support sub tabs.
  6. Next, select the appropriate option within the Review From, Review Conducted By, and Date Of Review drop-down
    menus. If your review was conducted by an organization that is not in the drop-down menu, please contact
    the Customer Care Center.
  7. Then press the Submit button.
    Screen capture of the Review Info tab on the Update Course page with an arrow pointing to the Submit button.
  8. At this point, the review information has been saved. Now tap the OK button.

    Note: Do not work or edit any information within the Upload tab of the Excel file.

    Screen capture of the Update Course page with an arrow pointing to the "Download the template" link. The Excel template is also displayed.

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.
