ONLINE LEARNING CAMPUS
● THEOLOGICALLY ACCREDITED
New NTSMoodle Course Management System Launched!
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
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!
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.
