How to Choose a Seminary Learning Management System

As online technology becomes increasingly ubiquitous, institutions of secondary education are experimenting with ways to deliver quality education online and at a distance. Some schools, such as MIT, have posted many of their academic curriculums online where anyone can access them free of charge. Seen in that context, it becomes evident that schools of theology need to adapt to new ways of providing theological education; among other benefits, classes that are available 24/7 can reach new audiences at a time when seminaries are facing declining enrollment. Online programming can also increase classroom diversity by making it possible for students to participate in group exercises and conversations from, literally, anywhere in the world.

In a feature article for technology professionals at schools of theology, The Association of Theological Schools, an accrediting organization for member schools of religion, notes that the variety of organizational structures, missions and sizes of theological schools makes it impossible to find a “one size fits all” online learning solution; however, every school needs to identify how various Learning Management Systems serve as the foundation and structure of online education programs. Also see our resource article on seminary governance, “Best Resources for Governance of Seminaries and Schools of Theological Education.”
