Distance Education

At a recent meeting of the World Reformed Fellowship in Johannesburg, it was decided that during the following year all distance education course lectures for the Reformed Theological Seminary would be made available free over the internet using iTunes technology. This is great news for many thousands of students and would-be students around the world who have access to the internet but not to a passport, or sufficient finances to study abroad or at home, or don’t live near the big cities, or for whom family or personal circumstances make getting out difficult. More information is available here. Of course, it’s not as ideal as face-to-face learning (and coffee drinking), but may there be many more colleges offering their distance-ed courses likewise.
