e-Learning DLES Preparedness Sessions

Online Prerequisite

Due to the continuing COVID-19 emergency situation, Mott Community College will be making the DLES-100 eLearning preparation course optional for students wishing to take courses online for the Summer 2020 semester. In addition, a "mini" eLearning prep course will be available to all students in Canvas. Students who successfully complete their Summer 2020 online course will not be required to take DLES-100 in the future.

However, students who are not taking Summer courses online but who are planning to take online courses for Fall 2020 will still be required to complete DLES-100. Whether you choose to enroll in DLES-100 for Summer (optional) or Fall, for assistance with registering for DLES-100 or other eLearning questions, contact the eLearning office at: or 810-762-0224.
