Digital Live

Throughout our nearly 25-year history, Gordon-Conwell Charlotte has worked to make seminary education more accessible, flexible, and convenient for women and men who already possess significant commitments in ministry, work, and life.

In keeping with this approach, we are pleased to announce the next big thing at Gordon-Conwell Charlotte, and the next evolution of contextualized learning: DIGITAL LIVE.

DIGITAL LIVE brings the live classroom experience to any student anywhere with a high-speed internet connection.  The DIGITIAL LIVE format is both informative and interactive.  Students connecting to the course at a distance receive the same teaching through live feeds of the Professor and his/her presentations as well as student discussions.  In addition, students are able to interact live with the Professor, the students in the classroom, and others connecting from around the world through live video, chat, group project work and other features.

Watch the two videos below.  The first is an informational video about Digital Live.  The second is a sample video lecture from a New Testament Survey class.
