How will Hartland College Distance Learning operate?
The widespread uses of computers and the Internet have made distance learning easier and faster. Through Populi, students log on with a username and password, and then are given access to video lectures, class syllabi, handouts, lesson notes, exercises, and more.
What is special about Distance Learning?
One important feature of Distance Learning is the emphasis we place on critical thinking, student research, and creativity, while relying less on recall and memorization. Our goal is to provide the student with tools and resources that will assist him or her to go beyond the content and information provided by the teacher. Learning to study is an important aspect of our program. Another very important aspect of Hartland’s academic program has been an uncompromising loyalty to the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. Distance Learning continues and builds upon this in each course offered.
What programs are currently offered through Distance Learning?
Distance Learning students can enroll in a one-year Biblical Studies program or in a two-year program which offers an associate’s degree in Christian Discipleship.
Is It possible to take individual classes?
Yes. Any of the classes that we offer through Distance Learning can be taken without enrolling in one of our programs.
If I start by taking individual classes, and later decide to enroll in one of your programs, are credits transferable?
Yes. If you have taken online classes, and then decide to enroll in any of Hartland’s regular programs, whether Distance Learning or our campus-based program, credits will be transferable.
