Olivet Theological College and Seminary provides a variety of online courses through the university’s online classroom. Nearly all of the degree programs offered by Olivet may be completed entirely through online courses. Residential students may also take online courses to fulfill their degree requirements.
The online courses have the same course description and student learning outcome as residential courses, therefore, students may use credits earned via online education to complete degree requirements.
The Internet is a dynamic force at Olivet University, and it serves to unite our diverse international community. Olivet University’s online platform is supported by a large farm of Web servers configured to assure uninterrupted, around-the-clock operation. This online platform supports Olivet’s degree programs, which are taught by qualified instructors and administered by the Course Management System known as “MyOlivet” – a unique, high-performance, multi-user database management system created by Olivet University.
MyOlivet is designed to encourage user involvement and interaction. Its applications make for a high-quality course experience by allowing instructors to chart every assignment and activity in a given course, many of which can be evaluated electronically. In the same way, MyOlivet “student” pages facilitate academic discussion, interaction and community formation among Olivet University’s student users.
Student lessons, projects, or dissertations that are sent to Olivet University via the institution’s online platform will receive a response or evaluation within ten days of receipt.
Olivet University uses Moodle learning management system for online courses. Students taking online courses should become familiar with the Moodle platform before the start of the course. Some online courses may utilize other third-party programs, such as Adobe Connect, for synchronous activities.
