The Michigan Learning Channel is an exciting public television partnership that offers free 24-7 instructional content to support and extend classroom learning. Designed as an alternative resource for families, caregivers, and schools, the shows on the Michigan Learning Channel align with the instructional calendar throughout the school year and provide engaging summer content to help students continue to build their brains and grow their skills outside of the classroom. The Michigan Learning Channel’s goal is to provide an at-home link to classroom instruction and engage students in high-quality supplemental learning at no cost to schools, families, and caregivers.
The content is presented by a diverse group of primarily Michigan educators and is delivered as if the teacher is in a classroom setting. Each program aligns with MI educational standards and nearly every program has extension activities and resources for students and families. Visit Featured Shows and More for a complete list of all programs available on the Michigan Learning Channel.
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.
Shows are 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. Visit the Michigan Learning Channel to access on-demand programming!
