The other day I was reading the website of a fairly well known theological seminary. When I came to the part about online learning I was stunned at what I read. According to this seminary's website, online learning is fine for a very limited number of courses but most seminary courses should be taught on campus in the traditional 16-week format. Shortly after that, I was discussing the topic of online learning with our director of online learning. They were of the view that colleges, universities, and seminaries that don't embrace online learning will be left behind. They will, within the next twenty years, become obsolete. Is our director correct? I think so. Colleges (at all levels), universities, and seminaries must adapt to the changing market place. They have no real choice. The face of higher education is changing and it is changing fast. No longer are schools going to be able to continue to do things the way they have been done for 75 years. Thanks to the advancements in online learning schools are going to have to adjust their attitudes and their actions. Online classes, live television classes, modular classes, and Saturday classes are the future. Sadly, if the seminary whose website I visited does not change its approach its halls will be dark twenty years from this day. What say you?
