Preparing for the Semester

How will I participate in the courses?

Your instructor will notify you when you have access to the course in D2L and Teams.

FLT courses are asynchronous but highly interactive, and they all offer opportunities to interact in real time. Our learning management systems is D2L Brightspace, and we also use Microsoft Teams and other collaborative tools extensively.

What textbooks do I need to order?

Textbooks are listed in the Student Information System. Go to Click the Class Search tile. Locate your course. See the Textbook Info tab. Many FLT courses use textbooks that are available through the MSU Library at no additional cost. If you have questions, email your professor.

What if I need to change or drop a course?

That is one of the updated topics in the new and improved Orientation Modules. Also see: MAFLT SharePoint > Enrollment Guide.
