Introduction to BGST Online

‘The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.’
- Alvin Toffler 

The Internet age has dramatically changed the face of education. Learning is no longer the stuff of the physical classroom, but a dynamic and ever-changing landscape limited only by the student’s drive to learn, unlearn and relearn. 

In the midst of this changing landscape, BGST hopes to bring the best of theological education to students worldwide through our online learning system, BGST Online. BGST Online students have access to a wide range of theological topics taught by renowned lecturers around the world, a growing collection of online resources (including e-books and journals), and a supportive community of tutors. 

We pray that through BGST Online, you will have the opportunity to come face-to-face with God’s Word and experience the fruitfulness of dwelling in His truths. May you have a wonderful journey ahead.

Considering online education? There are several features of online education that make it different from the traditional mode of classroom education. Individuals who thrive in online education tend to be:

- Flexible
- Self-motivated and self-directed
- At ease with reading and writing
- Comfortable with the use of technology

Traditional Classroom Learning


Online Learning


Fixed
course schedule with standard times and venues for classes, tutorials and assignment submissions.

Flexible schedule - choose where you want to access the online modules, and complete the lessons at your own pace/timing.

Lessons are teacher-directed - the teacher directs how you learn and enforces deadlines.

Self-motivated and self-directed - you have to determine your own pace of study and make sure that you adhere to the deadlines on your own.

Lectures and tutorials are a mix of face-to-face lectures, discussions, and written assignments.

Lectures are mostly in the form of video or audio recordings. Learning activities involve either reading/writing - you will have to read many books on your own, and write out all your assignments.

Minimal use of technology.

While online learning does not require very complicated uses of technology, you will need to be comfortable with technology at the very least - you will need access to a computer, and be able to navigate the online Moodle platform.
