Comments about this course from some of our participants:

Liviu (Romania) It was a good reminder of what biblical integration is. As a result of this online class, I understood better the concept of biblical worldview and how it should shape all the subjects that are taught in the school. I have started to make some steps toward making this a reality in my school.
Tanya (Ukraine) This course was wonderfully structured and organized: I was able to plan my week easily in order to complete all the assignments in time. The way the material was given made the course really clear and specific; the notes and videos for every week were very useful.
