Discover LSTOnline (FAQ)
You are now in LST’s virtual learning environment called LSTOnline, built on the most popular learning platform in the world (Moodle) to which we have applied careful learning design to produce carefully thought out learning experiences for you.
Online learning is a blend of engagement between you, as a student, and resources, your tutor and other students. In each module you can therefore expect to find course narratives that will lead you as you engage with many texts and resources. You will watch video explanations, read books and journal articles, and search and engage with scholarly sources on the Internet within a scaffolded learning framework. But you will not be alone and you can also expect to learn in community, and each module has a variety of communication tools that will allow you to relate to your module tutor with questions and further dialogue as well as with your fellow students as you construct your learning together and learn from each other’s contexts. So you will be able to chat personally, place general comments for the entire cohort to see or participate in critical conversation in discussion forums.
Each cohort will be assigned a tutor who will either be a contracted LST faculty member or a visiting lecturer with proven experience and high standard theological qualifications. Normally tutors will interact with you on a weekly basis and walk with you through your learning journey, providing answers, guidance and relational encouragement.
We hope the LSTOnline will soon become a friendly home, where you can learn and flourish together with others. You can gain a better look at LSTOnline through the LSTOnline Video Tour below. More information on the content and delivery patterns can be found in the 'Discover' sections of the individual degree programmes.
