Webinar to Learn How to Use the "Michigan Learns Online" Portal

The REMC Michigan Learns Online Portal contains a wealth of resources that support online learning. Because of this, users of the portal often become overwhelmed and leave the portal without finding the best materials for their needs. This webinar will help participants learn how to use the portal to find resources that support exceptional online learning. Participants will also learn how to access online courses, units and lessons that can be restored in their district Moodles for modification and use.

This webinar will be repeated monthly. The first session will be held on November 5, 2014 and then repeated on the first Wednesday of each month through May 6, 2015. The webinars will run from 4:00 PM - 4:30 PM.
