Code of Conduct

You are expected to display Christ-like behavior when interacting with the instructors and students of AWKNG School of Theology. Inappropriate behavior such as offensive statements, harassment, bullying, taunting, etc. will not be tolerated. Initial inappropriate behavior will result in a warning and continued inappropriate behavior will result in removal of the course.

Communications

The primary method of communication during the course is email and the Activity Feed tool in Brightspace. You are responsible for providing a current email address, regularly checking the Activity Feed, and reading emails from AWKNG School of Theology (ASOT) in a timely manner. This includes monitoring your spam/junk folders to ensure emails are not overlooked. You are also responsible for reaching out with any questions/concerns regarding an ASOT email or activity feed post.

Course Access

During the semester, you have learner access to the course. This allows you to review the course content as well as complete the quizzes. The day after a semester ends, you receive read-only access to the course. This means you can still review the course content as often as you like, but you cannot complete any quizzes. (Completed quizzes is how course completion is measured. See Course Completion.) You maintain read-only access to the course for one year from the course/semester start date. After one year, the course is deactivated, and you no longer have access to it. To access a course after it has been deactivated, you must re-enroll in the course.

Course Content

Courses are intellectual property of and owned by AWKNG School of Theology (ASOT). Enrolling in the course does not grant you any license to the course content. The course content is provided to you for sole purpose of completing the course. Course content includes, but not limited to, recorded lectures, slide decks, supplemental texts provided as PDFs, meeting link for office hour sessions, etc. You cannot reproduce, distribute, modify, adapt, publish, exploit, license, or use the course content without the written consent ASOT. If you violate this, ASOT will take legal action to remove the content, and you will be immediately removed from the course and no longer be able to participate in ASOT.

Course Completion

You have 17 weeks to complete the course, which consists of 15 modules. To successfully complete the course, you must complete all 15 quizzes within the course/semester start and end dates. You have unlimited attempts, and you are responsible for ensuring all quizzes are completed and successfully submitted. Once you successfully complete the course (by completing all 15 quizzes), you are awarded a Course Completion Badge, which is issued within 14 business days after the course/semester end date.
