About MLOL Courses: Mercy Learning Online courses are asynchronous. Students may access and complete material within the course session to accommodate their summer schedule; however, they must adhere to assignment due dates.  All students participating in MLOL will be enrolled in an online orientation course. This will help them understand the expectations of the MLOL program and course and navigate Schoology (the platform used to deliver online courses) to access and submit assignments.

Powered by Mercy

Mercy educators with a shared commitment to teaching in the tradition of Mercy develop, review and teach every online course. Online courses are developed with fidelity to the Mercy charism and academic excellence.

For more information please contact Nell Stetser, MESA coordinator for Mercy Learning Online.

  • ​A virtual tour is provided by Schoology when a student logs in for the first time.  Students take the tour and familiarize themselves with the site.
  • Each student is enrolled in a course, “Student Orientation to Mercy Learning Online.” This orientation provides students with time before their courses officially open to learn more about topics such as submitting assignments, viewing grades, participating in discussions and more.

Registration

Mercy Learning Online is an educational program available to all Mercy secondary education schools. Registration for Mercy Learning Online must be completed by a school administrator.

Parent/Guardian Access

  • E-mail and Phone: For each enrolled student, we ask that one parent/guardian share his/her email address and phone number to allow direct communication with a parent/guardian if needed. Neither a student’s email address nor phone number should be given as the parent/guardian contact information on the registration form.
  • Access to Assignments and Grades: a parent/guardian may log on to a student’s course using the student’s user name and password and see a record of all assignments and points earned.
