Introduction:

Michigan’s Online Course Catalog allows users to display courses in their local district catalog. This process describes how to display a 3rd party offering in that catalog.

Details:

  1. From the Course Administration page, tap Find 3rd Party Courses.
  2. Next, use the drop-downs to filter results and then tap Search.
  3. Then select the course(s) by placing a check to the left of the course name(s) and then tap Add Courses.
    The 3rd Party Course Search Page shows various drop-down filters with ACT Mastery selected for the Entitiy. Arrows point to the Search button, to the Course selection checkbox and finally to the Add Courses button. Only one course was selected for this example.
  4. At this point, you will be prompted to insert the Vendor Code. Once inserted, you can check the Import Reviews checkbox to include the iNACOL or NSQ National Standards for Quality Online Courses.
    Note: If you need a Vendor Code, please follow the Request Vendor Syllabi Code process.
  5. Finally, tap the Add Courses button to add the course(s) to your local district catalog.
    The 3rd Party Course Search Page is grayed out and displays a pop-up window prompting for a Vendor Code. An arrow points to the Add Courses button.

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.
