06/30/2020: MTDA Independence Day Schedule

Fireworks

Hello from MTDA central offices in Missoula!

Per our academic calendars, MTDA academic programs will be closed on Friday, July 3, 2020, and Monday, July 6, 2020, for the Independence Day weekend.

For our original credit programs, this means that teachers might not be reachable via email or other means.  Online classrooms will remain open.

For our credit recovery programs, there will be no live grading service either Friday, July 3, or Monday, July 6.

Our help desk services will be lightly monitored for emergencies throughout the weekend, and our office staff will be available for service on Monday, July 6, 2020.

Have a great Independence Day weekend!

01/21/2020: Enrollment is Open Through 1/24

The Spring 2020 High School Original Credit initial course request deadline has passed and we have sectioned off courses and assigned teachers. Enrollment remains open for Spring 2020 with remaining course capacity. The majority of our courses have additional capacity for enrollment. You can see an always-updated list of available courses by clicking on our live course availability list: here.

For the handful of courses that have hit capacity, that course will no longer appear for enrollment in GeniusSIS. We don’t have a means of keeping a waitlist, however, we will process any drop we receive at 9:59 am each weekday so that you can check for open slots at 10:00 am each morning, first come, first served.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our staff if you have any questions!

Enrollment will remain open for high school original credit classes until Friday, January 24, 2020, with the exception of classes that fill. At this point, we have room in the vast majority of courses, however, we strongly advise that you enroll before classes start on Tuesday, if possible, for the best likelihood of a good student outcome.

New Edmentum/Connect CR Interface for Students

Attention all Connect CR students and site facilitators:

Over the weekend, the system that hosts our Connect Credit Recovery system was updated.  The student interface is new and should, over time, prove a more obvious way to click through the curriculum.

Here is a quick graphic that shows you where various pieces of your class are located:

The courses otherwise work the same as last week.  If you have any questions or run into problems or errors, please contact the support desk, support (at) montanadigitalacademy.org.

Today, Tuesday, July 22, 2014, is the deadline for dropping session 2 courses.  Please contact our support desk, support (at) montanadigitalacademy.org to initiate a support.

Summer 2014 Original Credit Session 1 starts this morning!

Good morning from Montana Digital Academy!

The Summer 2014 High School Original Credit session 1 classes starts this morning!  All online classrooms are open and ready for learning!
 
Today, you should… 1.) Log into the virtual classroom.  2.)  Read and watch all introductory texts, video and syllabus documents.  3.)  Look at upcoming deadlines and expectations. 4.) Contact your instructor via email and introduce yourself!  5.)  Get started on the your assignments.
 
Remember…  the summer courses have fast-paced time schedules!  We expect the average student to spend 3-5 hours per course, per day to keep pace.  You may find it takes more or less depending on your skill level and comfort with this format.  However, if you are a first time online student, always plan for more time than less!
 
Confused and need help?  If you have questions about the assignments, schedule or curriculum, contact your teacher.  You can find their contact information in the upper left hand corner of the virtual classroom.  If you have technical problems or username and password issues, contact the friendly, tech-savvy MTDA help staff at contact@montanadigitalacademy.org and we’d be happy to give you a hand!
 
We want you to dominate your Summer course at MTDA!  Let us know how we can help.
 
Have a great summer session!

Open Summer Slots Available for Enrollment

Attention site facilitators:

After processing drops, MTDA has agreed to open up enrollments to extra slots for the Summer original credit program until Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at 7pm.  These slots are first come, first served and we will not open up new sections under any circumstances.

If a class doesn’t appear in the drop down list in the enrollment screen, it means the class is full and is no longer taking enrollments.

Please contact our support desk, support@montanadigitalacademy.org, with questions.
