Manila, Philippines: There is excitement on the campus of Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary (APNTS) as the vision of taking content “to the region” is being realized.

IMG_6196Internet access and the utilization of mobile devices are growing at a record breaking pace across the Asia-Pacific region. Some studies are indicating that the growth of mobile data use on the region is three times that of the rest of the world. This is opening opportunities like never before to bring contextualized content to those who might not otherwise be able to travel to a centralized location.

APNTS Professors Dr. Darin Land and Dr. Mitch Modine, are addressing this new opportunity by establishing a pilot project of producing video resources and making those resources available online.  Presently these video resources are serving as a complement to already established “on campus” courses, but this is just the beginning.

“We are currently strategizing as to how we can develop a packaged curriculum that would include DVDs, presentation materials, assignments and quizzes, all towards establishing a contextualized Course of Study program that would be relevant across the region,” said Land.

The first video resources that have been produced are for the “Introduction to Biblical Studies” course. This is being team taught by Drs. Land and Modine.

“Student responses have been good so far,” explains Modine. “For many of our students, English is not their primary language. This allows them to watch, pause, rewind, and truly understand the material.”

IMG_6206The World Mission Communications Asia-Pacific Team is partnering with APNTS in the production of the videos. Creating Communications that Connect is the passion of the WMC-AP Team. This is just another way that the Gospel message and training is being taken beyond borders and boundaries through technology.

Stay tuned for announcements regarding further development in the online training from APNTS.
