FBConnect, our latest learning initiative, is a unique one. It combines the web standard Moodle (Modular Object Oriented Dynamic Learning Environement) with traditional classroom study methods to create a unique and highly enhanced learning environment. Moodle has been the web standard to offer online courses over a number of years. Moodle offers multiple options to enhance the classroom study more dynamic by adding tools such online examination, quizzes, surveys etc. FBConnect harnesses this to benefit both the course facilitator and the student. The teacher can supplement the classroom discussions with additional resources for the students, while the students can use FBConnect to further research topics of their interest. FBConnect also offers additional tools for examination, grading, and reporting to both the course facilitators and the students.
To encourage research among students and course facilitators, FBConnect also offers gateways to the vast resources available through EBSCOHost/ATLASerials and the library catalogue of Filadelfia Bible College. Currently, FBConnect is accesible on the internal network of the Filadelfia Bible College. In the long term, the college is planning to take the classroom courses to the web, through FBConnect, thereby benefitting the church at large.
