Students are required to log in and participate in the class at least three days each week. Moodle tracks student access to resources in each course and provides a report to the course instructor. Students are expected to invest as much time each week as he or she would in an on ground class (class time plus homework).
Chapel services can be accessed from the MABTS Web Site or as an iTunes podcast.
A signature of the Mid-America educational experience is participation in a practical missions ministry. Full time students are required to witness to one person each week and to participate in two different ministries each week during the term. Part-time students are required to witness to one person each week and to participate in one ministry each week during the term. Students register for ministries at the beginning of each term during the normal registration process. Most questions and issues can be resolved by reviewing the Practical Missions Page and manual. For aditioanl information please contact the Practical Missions office at 800-968-4508.
All students are required to report witness and ministry experiences each week through the Practical Missions Reporting System at, MABTS Practical Missions. The link to Practical Missions is on the main page.
Students who do not complete their Practical Missions report in a timely fashion may lose academic credit for that term.
Chapels are held on campus each Tuesday and Thursday. During these chapels faculty and students share their personal witnessing experiences. Online students are expected to share their experiences through the Practical Missions forum that is part of every course on this site. Every week, log in and go to the Reporting forum and enter in your witness report. Students can view the reports of fellow students for mutual encouragement. Reporting is mandatory for all students. Since online students can participate at any time during the week, no reporting exemptions are offered for online students. Every student is required to participate in the virtual reporting forums. Students may then check "present" when reporting into the Practical Missions System on the Practical Missions Website each week.
