Global University, a fully accredited distance education university of the Assemblies of God located in Sprignfield, Missouri, has launched its Berean School of the Bible courses in additional electronic versions in English.
According to Wade Pettenger, vice president for Information Technology for Global, the university now has Berean School of the Bible courses in multiple digital formats, including the Logos Digital Library System, Kindle and e-Pub format.
"The new e-Pub format allows our students to study a Berean course on virtually any device, including smart phones and tablets," says Pettenger. "This includes both iOS and Android devices, which all support the software for reading these courses."
Pettenger adds that depending on the type of software used, students can use bookmarks, navigate the table of contents, highlight sections of content, access Bible passages, correct self-diagnostic quizzes and make personal notes.
Enrolled students can access the new e-Pub courses on Global University's mobile website.
According to Vice Provost Randy Hedlun, all but three courses out of the 27 ministerial courses are available in these electronic formats. Dr. Hedlun adds that publishing these electronic courses is yet another effort to continue providing accessibility to Global University students.
