Our original credit Fall 2015 semester will start today, Monday, August 31, 2015. Classes will be open in the virtual classroom by 8am. It is important that you get up and started this week as there are assignments and expectations for you in the course right away! Students that are not logged in and up to pace by the early weeks of the program risk being dropped from the course.
The last day of the program is Wednesday, January 13, 2016 No assignments will be accepted after 5pm on that day.
Although the virtual classrooms are open for access and student work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, our classes are considered “in session” Monday–Friday, per our academic calendar located at http://montanadigitalacademy.
org/programs/mtda-academic- calendars/. Please note that MTDA’s calendar may differ from your local school calendar and you are expected to follow the MTDA calendar for this course.
As part of your first day activities, you will sign a course contract that details the expectations of you in this program. Please read that carefully.
Remember that our online learning format requires an investment of time: we would expect students to take 4-7 hours per course per week to keep pace, so, be sure you are being careful to plan for enough time to be successful in this course
MTDA has a brief orientation program for students and parents. You may access our orientation-on-demand program available by clicking here: link. Included in that video is how and where to login.
Throughout the semester, please don’t be afraid to contact your instructor for help as soon as you run into problems. Additionally, you may contact the MTDA help desk in Missoula at support@montanadigitalacademy.
org for technical support or help contacting an instructor if you are not getting a response. We want you to be successful in online courses!
Have a GREAT semester! We want to help you be an online learning rock star!
