I finished this course a few weeks ago and thought a course review was in order. The title is The Modern Classrooms Project course. I stumbled onto this online class when looking up information on a potential podcast I wanted to do in the future, but will now not be developed. I was surprised when I found this course and hoped it would have a lot of useful information.

You can check all of my assignments for this program here.

So, let’s just jump right in and find out if this course is worth taking….

There were two books assigned as part of the Theology Program from Credo House course, Principles of Biblical Teaching and here is a review of the first book by Howard Hendricks, Teaching to Change Lives.

This course was taken as part of my Unschooled Master of Theology program.

So let’s get started….

About three months ago, I purchased a new laptop from B&H Photo and decided to splurge a little and buy a $400 device instead of the typical Acer $190 throw-away laptops that I typically purchase. I chose this new model for several reasons: 1. It had a touch screen 2. It had a large hard drive. This, of course was to aid my research for my Unschooled Master of Theology Program as I needed a new bible software program (which I reviewed already), and I was really tired of running out of hard drive space for my off grid trips to Eden.

Anyway, lets take a look at some of the benefits of this new system, and also some of the problems that have developed (and also what B&H and Acer said about fixing them).

Three months is really not very long for a computer to start falling apart…

I finished several books this week as part of my Unschooled Master of Theology Program. You can check them all out here. One of the books I finished was PhD: An Uncommon Guide by James Hayton.

This was a book I picked up in hopes of getting a better understanding of what it’s like in grad school, beyond the cursory exposure I had with two semesters before I dropped out. This book’s author chose to get his PhD in a hard science, then left academia for the self-employed teaching and lecture circuit, where he now coaches other PhD candidates on how to finish their studies (interesting).

I came away with shabby notes, but a little better perspective on what it could be like going for a terminal degree. It certainly cemented (along with many other anecdotal evidences) how right I was to drop out of grad school when I did, before I wasted a bunch of money and time.

But, let’s take a closer look and see what it could have been like….

I received an email this morning and, boy, was I glad to get it. If you’ve been following my blog and unschooled research for any length of time, you know I recently purchased the Accordance Bible Software program and had some, well, let’s just say some struggles with it.

But, I committed to the system (since I had already spent about $500 on the program and various modules) and I’ve been learning the system and getting used to it, trying my best to work around its limitations.

Since then, I’ve been making a list of modules I would like to purchase (ranging from $40 to $750 – yeah, I know, ridiculous) and made an agreement with myself not to buy a single module that wasn’t on sale.

So, I was pleasantly excited when the email this morning had the Complete Church Fathers (all 37 volumes) over half off! It’s at the top of my list.

You can read all of my reviews here.

But, for now, let’s talk Church Fathers!

I think I’ve finally figured out my research workflow for my Unschooled Master’s of Theology in Biblical Studies and thought I would share it with everyone. This article will cover my motivations, the tools used, the implementation of those tools, and where there are still deficiencies in the overall process.
