Do I get a grade in the course?
Yes, each course is graded. You accumulate points each week based on assignments that you complete and submit. Over the eight-week course period the total number of points that can be accumulated is 100. Grades are posted at the end of each week.
Do I have to take the courses in a certain order?
All learners are required to take The Word of God (1) class as their first course in the program. Other than that, unless a course has a prerequisite, you do not have to take courses in any particular order. Some courses in the program are offered in a sequence based on parcels. A parcel is two or three courses within a major course topic (for example, The Body of Christ) that cover the same sub-topic, earlier courses in the parcel being prerequisite to later courses. A detailed description of course parcels and which courses they apply to can be viewed here: https://onlineftta.org/mod/resource/view.php?id=13501.
Do I need any special computer equipment to take a course?
Do the courses have a teacher or trainer?
A blended group of experienced facilitators leads each FTTA Online class. These serving ones are not a group of experts or teachers but are facilitators who coordinate to foster the learning process and generally facilitate the study of the truth.
Main Functions of the Facilitators:
• Guide the class through the material
• Keep the class on task
• Help learners who are struggling
• Monitor and encourage class progress and participation
• Serve as discussion moderators
• Grade assignments and offer feedback to learners
