Utilizing the popular MOOC (massive open online course) format, Crown College will be offering a free, seven-week online course open to students worldwide. The MOOC format is designed for a truly “global classroom” that leverages the latest in technology and a unique, one-of-a-kind classroom dynamic.
Entitled “Understanding the Old Testament”, the MOOC course is part of a larger biblical literacy initiative of the college and can accommodate hundreds or thousands of students, requires no application, and can lead to course credit for participants who choose to take a proficiency exam at the end of the 7-week course (optional). Anyone with internet access can participate and the free course is scheduled to begin October 5, 2015.
Designed to help participants master the critical concepts and history of the Old Testament, the course is well-suited to individual students but group participation (bible study, church members, pastoral staff, ministry teams, etc.) is also encouraged. A free companion guide is available to assist small group leaders in discussing course content with their bible study group.
“Our desire is to utilize the resources that God has given us in order to serve the Christian community by promoting biblical literacy and proclaiming the mighty works of God in history.”
