Now Offering Real-time Interaction via Online LIVE

Online LIVE courses provide the opportunity for students to engage in gospel-centered transformation in real-time, with teachers and students interacting through a video conferencing platform, such as Zoom.

These classes typically meet for an hour every week, during late weekday afternoons or Saturday mornings. While some of these classes utilize lecture videos in tandem with live video teaching, others rely only on live class time for instruction. The Online Live classes are one of several new ways that Western Global is leveraging emerging digital technology in the classroom.
