So, the course on moodle is being fun to put together. I never would have messed with so many features if I was trying to teach anything else. But I'm getting a sense that there is far more that I would like to try, that won't fit into 10 weeks,…Continue

From what I have read into thy information here, Friend Sarah, it looks very helpful. I came to Quaker Quaker Seeking, and this may prove a good way to Find. With homeschooling starting up again soon, this will be difficult to do, but it is something worthy to look into further.

If you are here to expeerience online learning you will want to look at the Quaker Studies online catalog page.  We're offering 2 courses this fall. One is an introductory look at St. Paul, especially for those of us who think we don't like him! The other is an exploration of Quaker spirituality - reading a deeply challenging pamphlet with a Friend with recognized gifts in ministry.

 

Quaker Studies online courses meet for a scheduled number of weeks and are led by experienced leaders. Your participation each week can occur when you have time. There are usually no scheduled lectures or meetings during the week. You do readings or exercises and respond to queries or share your experience through forums.
