New NTSMoodle Course Management System Launched!
December 1, 2009

Northwestern Theological Seminary adopted the Moodle open-source platform as its learning management system. It has replaced the previous Online Learning Center (OLC) and Online Student Records (OSR).

The NTS courses are now available in the NTSMoodle. Each of the individual courses have separate "Enrollment Keys", which you will receive as you register for each course. You will only be allowed to be registered for up to (3) three of your required courses at a time. The transition for current students will be done with the assistance of their advisors. Instructions will be given as to how to login to the NTS Moodle System.

Moodle is a leading open-source course management system (CMS) - a software package designed to help educators create quality online courses. Such e-learning systems are sometimes also called Learning Management Systems (LMS) or Virtual Learning Environments (VLE). One of the main advantages of Moodle over other systems is a strong grounding in social constructionist pedagogy.

New Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) Program Launched!
October 15, 2007

Northwestern Theological Seminary has launched the new Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) Degree Program.
The program is a professional degree for men and women already successfully engaged in ministry. It is designed with enough structure to help busy ministers negotiate the academic requirements with enough flexibility as to not interfere with their current responsibilities and time restrictions.

The Doctor of Ministry Program is currently accepting applications for new enrollments only. An earned Master's Degree is required for this program.

Problems With Hotmail Email Accounts
September 25, 2007

The Seminary has found that correspondence with both applicants and students that have email accounts with Hotmail continue to be unreliable with difficulties in the transmission and receiving of  emails. In some cases, Hotmail returns emails sent by the Seminary as undeliverable.
It is very important that applicants and students with Hotmail accounts change the email address made available to the Seminary and utilize a different email provider, other than Hotmail. You can opt to continue to use free email providers, such as Yahoo, Gmail, or AOL, if you desire to do so. Students are reminded to update their email address, and make any required corrections to their personal information, on the OLC and OSR anytime a change is done.
There is currently no time-frame provided as to when this issue with Hotmail will be resolved.
