The Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA) is one way Brother Witness Lee took to address the need of teaching the truths in an educational way. The Online Full-Time Training (FTTA-OL) conducts the FTTA curriculum completely online, while maintaining thorough consistency with its counterpart.
We hope that this online program will help the believers cultivate a habit of studying the truth through a lifelong pursuit. Thus, the expectation is not that learners will complete all the courses in a short period of time. Of course, some learners may have the way to complete the courses quickly, taking many courses each year; praise the Lord for such an opportunity. However, FTTA-OL is designed with the view that most learners will take one or two courses per year for the next fifteen to thirty years. By the Lord’s mercy, we all will be in His move and His ministry for the rest of our lives, and we hope that many believers will spend these years studying God’s Word and being constituted with the divine truth.
Online learning in FTTA-OL requires active interaction with the materials, deliberate written responses, and participation from every learner. Additionally, it permits quality feedback for each learner while providing tightly controlled, high-quality instruction. Learning here is a corporate exercise. In other words, the learners work together (collaborate) to assimilate the material. While much of the material requires individual work (especially the lessons and the readings), most of the learning happens as learners interact with one another in written collaborative forums, where learners offer both substantive original posts (based on the lessons and readings) and substantive responses to the posts of other learners. Learners are expected to work together to dig into the materials and to help each other find answers to directed questions from Living Stream Ministry materials. There are no experts in FTTA-OL classes; rather, there are diligent learners who help one another learn. A staff facilitator is assigned to each class to provide assistance as needed.
