ABOUT ADC Go
ADC Go courses are delivered in a format to meet people where they are, without sacrificing the quality education that students have come to expect from Acadia Divinity College. Combining the flexibility of online learning with the educational experience of face-to-face interaction, ADC Go courses follow a weekly format within the semester. Individuals work through the assigned weekly material at their convenience, and then students meet together online for one hour a week with the professor. ADC Go courses are designed to make theological education accessible to a broader number of people, while still providing the opportunity for discussion and community.
UPCOMING ADC Go COURSES
FALL TERM (September – December 2016)
Ask A Question
As students meet weekly in their ADC Go class or connect into a residential course virtually, students must understand that ADC and its faculty are committed to face-to-face learning. ADC Go courses are designed to have the flexibility of online courses, while still maintaining regular face-to-face interaction. With this in mind, please observe the following:
- Please connect to the class 5 minutes prior to the class commencing.
- Your webcam should always be on unless your professor specifically asks you to turn it off.
- Please conduct yourself accordingly. Eating, talking to someone off-screen, leaving your spot, etc., are all highly distracting to the class.
- Please respect your professor and classmates by being present and engaged - refrain from doing other tasks on your computer.
- For ADC Go students, the one-hour weekly meeting are about interaction and discussion on the week’s content. Please be prepared by having completed the week’s assigned readings and viewing, and come prepared to discuss.
If a professor thinks that an ADC Go or virtual seat student is not meeting the requirements or not consistently following the expectations, they may be asked to withdraw or may not be considered for future ADC Go classes.
To ensure the best connection and interaction between students and the professor, students will have the following hardware requirements for the weekly online session:
- A computer or laptop with a high speed connection (hardwired recommended)
- A webcam (built in to most laptops)
- USB microphone headset (this maximizes sound quality back and forth, and minimizes feedback and external noise)
- Please connect from a relatively quiet room, away from distraction.
