Course Notifications

Intended Audience: Educators, MiRegistry Members


To keep track of their course activity, learners can take control of their Professional Learning Portal (PLP) course notifications. They can choose to receive periodic summaries or real-time notifications as events unfold, by following the outlined steps. It's important to note that this functionality is not applicable to ed2go courses.


To modify learner notifications, start by launching a course from the PLP Dashboard. Then, click on the learner name located in the top right corner to reveal a menu, and choose Notifications from the options available.
The username drop-down menu is shown with the available selections shown (profile, my portfolio, notifications, progress and log out). Arrows point to the username area and to the Notifications option.

In the Notifications section, adjust settings for each of the following categories:

  • Contact Methods
  • Summary of Activity
  • Instant Notifications
  • Customize Notifications
  • Exclude Some Courses

Once the desired adjustments have been made, click the Save button at the bottom of the page to apply the changes.
An arrow points to the Save button located at the bottom of the page.

Contact Methods

You can use the Contact Methods section to configure your mobile device for PLP notifications. To receive mobile updates, select "Register your mobile" and enter your Country, Carrier, and Phone Number when prompted. If you need to update your email address because you've changed it, retired, or left a district, please follow the Email Address Changed process. Please refrain from modifying any other settings in the Contact Method section.

Summary of Activity

You have the option to receive a summary of your course activity via email. This digest will include a brief news update or summary of each active course in the PLP. By default, new users will receive these notifications once a week (sent every Monday at 12:00 AM). If you want to modify the frequency or turn off these email notifications, simply tap the "How often?" drop-down field and choose the desired option.
The Summary of Activity section of the Notifications page is shown with an arrow pointing to the How Often drop-down field. This reveals a Never, Daily and Weekly option to choose.

Instant Notifications

Instant notifications refer to notifications that are received immediately on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. These notifications enable faster access to information. In this section, you can choose to receive SMS and/or email notifications for any PLP activity that interests you. For new users, the default settings for Assignments - assignment feedback released and Assignments - assignment feedback updated notifications are email. If you disable notifications, you will not receive emails when your instructor grades your assignments.The Instant Notifications section is shown with an arrow pointing to the SMS and Email checkboxes located next to each statement.

Customize Notifications

The Customize Notifications section provides two checkboxes that allow you to enable settings for including your current grade value in these notifications and receiving notifications from future courses.
The custom notifications section is shown with an arrow pointing to the first listed checkbox for "include my grade value in notifications from grades".

Exclude Some Courses

To receive notifications from only certain courses, you can select "Manage my course exclusions" from the Exclude Some Courses section.
The Exclude Some Courses section is shown with an arrow pointing to the manage my course exclusions link.
