MOCC: Creating Course Offerings

Introduction:

Course offerings are to be created after the syllabi has been added and when terms and pricing have been set. This process describes how to create those offerings in Michigan’s Online Course Catalog.

Note: If a district is only offering the online course to students within its district, the district can satisfy the 21f requirements of providing Michigan Virtual with the course syllabi information in a form and method prescribed by the department by completing only the Add New Course Syllabi and Course Review steps. By opting not to create a course offering with terms and pricing, however, the course syllabi and review will not appear in the Local District Catalog search interface available through Michigan’s Online Course Catalog.

Details:
