The Michigan Learning Channel is a statewide public television partnership offering instructional content to support the education of students and to provide alternative resources for families and teachers. Designed to supplement school learning, the instructional content is based on Michigan’s educational standards and seeks to align with the instructional calendar throughout the school year.
The lessons are presented by a diverse group of educators, delivered as if the teacher is in a classroom setting. Nearly every program has related educational activities and resources for students and families. The Michigan Learning Channel’s goal is to provide an at-home link to classroom instruction – not to replace a student’s relationship with a teacher or a school. Engagement with a teacher is critical to evaluating whether a student is understanding the content of a lesson and mastering the related skills.
This programming is broadcast on special on-air channels established by each of the participating public television stations in Michigan, including channel 13.4 in WNMU-TV PBS broadcast viewing areas. You may need to rescan your TV to access 13.4. Visit How to Rescan for step-by-step directions and more information.
It is also available as a livestream and stored for on-demand viewing on a variety of digital platforms, ensuring accessibility to all students, teachers and families in the state.
All content is offered at no cost to schools, families and caregivers.
MLC available on WNMU-TV 13.4
