Online Learning at Taylor
Taylor Seminary offers a number of courses in an online format each semester, and other courses are offered in a hybrid format (some classroom teaching, with a significant online component). Also, state-of the-art audio/visual technology has been installed in our campus classrooms; online students are able to interact in real-time with their instructor and peers. This makes it possible for students who can’t come to campus to participate synchronously (live) through the online meeting platform Zoom. These courses have attracted students from across Canada and the United States, and from places around the world such as Peru and Russia.
In a recent survey of our students, Taylor students were asked, "In what educational context have you completed the larger portion (more than 50%) of your courses?" The responses were as follows:
64.8% On campus (traditional academic terms)
24.0% Online courses
11.1% Modular (week-long or weekend)
Students were also asked to rank their agreement with the following statement: "On-line courses provide an effective mode of teaching and learning." The results are encouraging for anyone thinking about taking advantage of distance learning opportunities from Taylor Seminary.
