SLP: Activity Heatmap


The Activity Heatmap is a clickable calendar that highlights dates that a student is active within Student Learning Portal. Selecting the date will reveal assignment submission, login and activity duration details. This process describes how mentors and affiliation users can access this information.


  1. First, tap the Students tab in the top menu bar.
  2. As a result, a table containing a list of active students will appear.
  3. Next, tap the appropriate linked name within the Student column.
  4. At this point, the student information will be displayed.
  5. Then tap Activity Heatmap from the left navigation menu within the Enrollments section.
  6. A calendar, or multiple calendars for those enrolled in more than one course, will appear and are labeled by the course name.
  7. Finally, tap the date of interest to reveal assignment and login details on the right side of the page.
    Note: Hovering over the date will display text revealing the number of minutes the student was logged in without having to click on the date.

    1. Information displayed in the Assignments section show a list of all assignments the students submitted on the selected date.
    2. The Activities list displays any assignments the student worked on for the selected date.
      Three course calendars are displayed which contain highlighted dates for various days. Arrows point to the Activity Heatmap option on the left menu and to the November 11th date within the first calendar. The assignments and activity for this day appear in a list to the right of the calendar.

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.
