Encouraging Spiritual Growth Online Anytime, Anywhere

elearningwelcomeimageSMALL“Upper Room Online Learning” launches this week with nine on-demand courses, including studies based on the works of Henri J.M. Nouwen and Phyllis Tickle. An online space to dig deep into spiritual formation topics and engage with others, Online Learning from Upper Room Ministries is designed for individuals seeking self-paced experiences and online community.

Since 2011, Upper Room eLearning has offered virtual events—webinars, call-in seminars, and select eCourses with other partners. Now, Upper Room Online Learning offers a way for participants to access content anytime, from anywhere, and with any device. Laptop, desktop, tablet, and mobile-device friendly, Upper Room Online Learning eCourses include video and audio recordings, readings, prompts for reflection and a place for community discussion.

“The intent of these eCourses is to offer people an accessible and reasonably-priced means of supporting personal spiritual growth,” said Sharon Conley Cottingham, director of eLearning design for The Upper Room, “and to have conversation and learn with others who they might not meet in their local church setting.”

Nine eCourses are currently available from Upper Room Online Learning, including two based on best-selling books in The Henri Nouwen Spirituality Series.

Special, customizable classroom experiences for this Advent and the coming Lent season will be available soon for churches and small groups looking for private, closed-group online interaction.
