Online Learning: Michigan Virtual University & Blended Learning

Students may elect to take courses on-line through Michigan Virtual University or through Blended Courses.

Michigan Virtual University courses are taught by highly qualified teachers and are available to students during the school-day, after school or during the summer. Students who elect to take on-line courses should: be self-motivated, be able to work independently, have good time management skills, access to a compatible computer with internet and a valid email address. Students have taken online courses due to schedule conflicts, or personal preference.

Courses accepted for credit at West Ottawa High School include all Michigan Merit courses required for graduation and some additional core elective courses upon administrative approval. Students may not enroll in on-line courses that would be considered a recreation, hobby, craft, theology or religious class. All grades for on-line courses will appear on transcripts. Most of the courses offered through Michigan Virtual University are also approved by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Please click the Michigan Virtual University link to see the classes offered that count toward a West Ottawa High School diploma.

In an Online Learning Blended Course a student will complete the standard course curriculum through a combination of face-to-face instruction in class along with on-line instruction via Moodle.
