Michigan Colleges Online (formerly known as the MCCVLC) allows students the opportunity to take classes that aren’t available at their own college for various reasons while still receiving support services at their convenient "home" college.

You may access the syllabi of those courses posted to the MCO for the 2018 Fall semester by clicking the Link located in the Files widget on this article.
The types of results and feedback you can see on your quiz submissions are released by your instructor. Quiz feedback is not just a simple click away and takes a number of steps to find.
Your instructor may use the Quizzes tool to deliver tests to you from within the course site. The information in this guide will walk you through the quiz taking process as well as provide other tips regarding taking a quiz.
Your instructor may have you submit papers or other assignments to the Assignment Submission Folders in D2L. There are multiple ways to access Assignment Submission Folders. Your instructor may include a link from within Content to an Assignment Submission Folder or you may access from Assignments found in your course navigation bar.
Your instructor may use Turnitin for checking originality of sources for assignments submitted in D2L.
You may or may not be able to see feedback on an assignment submission folder for common reasons:

•You need to submit a file to an Assignment Folder but have not done so.
•Your instructor has not left feedback on your assignment submission.
•Your instructor has yet to release the feedback on the assignment submission.
OCC offers many courses online, however, if there is a course that we do not currently offer online, you have the option of taking the online course from one of the other community colleges in Michigan.
Your instructor may leave feedback on your Assignment Submissions in D2L. There may be reasons why you are not able to see feedback. Refer to the article, "Common Reasons for Not Seeing Feedback on Assignment Folders." After you have reviewed these reasons, here are steps to help you with viewing feedback on an Assignment Folder in D2L.

You may or may not be able to view or post to a discussion topic for some common reasons:

•Your instructor requires that you first start a new thread in the topic before you can read and reply to other threads by your classmates.
•The dates set for the discussion availability will limit you to when you can view the discussion and post.
•Your instructor locked a discussion forum or topic to prevent new posts from being created, thus making the conversation "read only."
The Settings in Discussions allow you to modify the display to accommodate your individual preferences. The Settings are located on the Discussions List page.
Your instructor may include Discussions for you to participate in for your course. There are multiple ways to access Discussions in D2L. Discussions may be accessed from the navigation bar in your course or you may find that your instructor has included a link to a Discussion within the Content Modules. This enables you to access a Discussion from the Content area.
You can participate in discussion in one of two ways: by posting a new thread to a discussion topic or by replying to a thread that a student or your instructor has posted. To keep track of new activity, you can also subscribe to a discussion and receive updates by email or text message immediately or as a daily email summary.
Your instructor uses Announcements to communicate with you throughout the semester. You will see Announcements when you access your course site. You may choose which announcements you want to view by using the "dismiss" and "restore" features.
You can send emails to class members or your instructor from the Classlist in D2L. You may use this feature as an option to logging into your OCC student email account in order to send an email message. The D2L system is a "send-only" system which allows instructors and students to send email from D2L, thus emails sent to you from D2L can be accessed and read from your OCC student email account. Lastly, in order to send emails from D2L, you must have an active OCC student email account.
You may keep current with your Discussions by subscribing to the forums, topics or threads in your course. Once subscribed, you will receive notifications when updates occur. You may also unsubscribe to a forum, topic or thread to stop receiving notifications.
This quick guide covers some basic information to help you get started in D2L. You may find additional help documents under the Academic Tools & Resources category in this Knowledge Base (KB).
Your instructor will use the Content tool to provide course materials and activities for your course. Content is an important area for accessing and viewing course materials. The types of course materials posted by your instructor may contain a variety of different types of file formats and also link to other areas within the course. The content area may include important items for you to access, such as: a Syllabus, Assignments, PowerPoint Lectures and links to videos or websites.
Your instructor may use Date Restrictions for Content to control when a module or topic is available for you to access. This means that modules and topics may only be available during a specific range of time. Instructors may also set up Due Date deadlines for modules and topics. Due dates are different than date restrictions. Check with your instructor first regarding any questions about specific due dates. Another way your instructor controls access to content is by using Release Conditions.
You can download content in D2L for each of the content topics. There are two ways to download content in D2L. Topics may be downloaded as an individual file to use outside of D2L for purposes such as reviewing when studying. You are also able to download content at the module level, which includes all content topics in the module packaged as a .zip file.
