Live-streamed Courses

Live-streamed Courses

Live-streamed courses are synchronous with an on-campus course. In these courses, the student participates in an actual class of students who are taking the same course, at the same time, on campus. The distance student "attends" class when the class meets on campus, follows the same deadlines, contributes to group discussions, and can participate in the actual class itself. The only difference is that the distance student is not in the physical classroom; he or she participates via video-conference. If you are interested in seeing how this works, you can access a live demo of this below.

This course will explore Perkins’ life and works and his influence on Puritanism in the seventeenth century. Since the years of Perkins’ life parallel the years of Elizabeth I’s reign (1558-1603), it will also explore the theological, ecclesiological, and political contexts of Elizabethan Puritanism.
