Entering text: Course Instruction

Course Instruction blockA profile consists of several component "blocks." Each block contains several fields. The Course Instruction block contains the following fields:

  1. Course Name
  2. Syllabus Number
  3. Course Description
  4. Course Notes
  5. Bibliography - Course Instruction

Fields left empty do not appear in the display. None of these fields are required.

This block is designed to support courses in which students become student members of the T. F. Torrance Theological Fellowship. Student members are placed on inactive status at the end of each semester, but for the duration of the course they have access to the entire website, including profiles.

For a sample profile that contains a Course block, see KVM. See also the "Use the website for course instruction" page in the Help section.
