PLP: Course Access

Intended Audience: Professional Learners/Educators, MiRegistry Members


The Professional Learning Portal (PLP) Dashboard features an "Active Courses" section that displays a list of courses in various states: not started, in progress, or overdue. While most of our courses are hosted on the Brightspace platform, some use SCORM. This document aims to help learners access additional course information based on the utilized platform.


  1. First, tap the Dashboard option on the Professional Learning Portal's left navigation menu. Below the Announcements section, the "Active Courses" section will be displayed. 
  2. Next, tap the course tile containing the course title.
  3. Utilize the information below to determine additional information about navigating the course. 


Brightspace courses will launch in a new browser tab. To the right of the Michigan Virtual Professional Learning Portal logo, learners will find the course title. Beneath this, navigation menus will be visible, including My PLP, Course Links, Help & Support, Check Completion Status, and Certificate. In the address bar of the new tab, learners will observe the term "lsp" displayed. You can refer to the image below for an illustrative example of a Brightspace course layout. Refer to Brightspace Navigation.
Brightspace course, Applied Behavior Analysis in Schools, is shown. An arrow points to the Navigation Menu while "LSP" is highlighted in the address bar.


Courses utilizing the SCORM platform will launch in a compact browser window rather than a tab. The Michigan Virtual logo will appear in the lower-right corner of the window. The links in both the address bar and the new window will include the term "scorm" and will resemble the example image provided below. Refer to SCORM Navigation.
The new browser window for a SCORM course is shown. An arrow points to the new smaller window and the term "scorm" has been highlighted in the URLs displayed.
