"Online LIVE"

Western’s "Online LIVE" courses provide the opportunity for students to engage in Gospel-Centered Transformation, in real-time, with teachers and students through a video conferencing platform, such as Zoom. Online LIVE classes are open to every Western student and scheduled with distance students in mind. These classes typically meet every week, during late weekday afternoons or some mornings. While some of these classes utilize lecture videos in tandem with live video teaching, others rely only on live class time for instruction.
