The Introductory Course consists of seven sequential classes which include:
Format & Scheduling of the Overview of The Urantia Book Course
The online classes consist of instructional videos, selected reading assignments, learning exercises, online class discussions, meditation exercises, and real-time discussion groups led by the instructor or facilitator.
A Weekly Class Plan or syllabus is posted in the online classroom at the beginning of each week. The class plan tells students what to do during the coming week. It lists the reading assignments and learning exercises and contains links to the instructional videos, meditation exercise, and other supplementary learning materials.
Classes are asynchronous, meaning there are no fixed times that students must meet, except for the three live webinars which take place at a scheduled time on a week night or weekend. UrantiaUniversity's online classrooms are open 24/7 to registered students. Attendance is flexible. Students work in the classroom and participate in written classroom discussions at a time that's convenient for them.
