My role as director of academics for William Carey Seminary is mainly to create courses and to tutor online students through those courses. We film intensive classes live at our site in CÃ³rdoba, then upload these courses to our online platform.
Creating a course involves a long series of steps: 1. Choosing the time/date/professor for the class; 2. Working with the professor to choose the best available textbook; 3. Creating all of the work the students must do (essays, quizzes, tests, discussion topics, etc.); 4. Editing video content and uploading them to the online platform; 5. Making the various resources such as the course syllabus, guidelines, etc.; 6. Checking the online platform to make sure everything looks good and is in order.
Over the past few years I have helped create the following classes:
Systematic Theology (1, 2, and 3)
Overview of the Bible
Introduction to the Old Testament
Introduction to the New Testament
In 2015 I hope to finish developing the following courses:
Introduction to Missiology
History and Theology of Missions
I am also involved in setting up student centers, where groups of students who are in the same geographic location can study together. We already have a student center in Cuba, and in 2015 will be adding 2, one in Tucuman, Argentina, and another in Valdivia, Chile.
