Northpoint’s Digital Campus

Course Design with You in Mind

When we designed our online courses, we did so with you in mind. Have you struggled in school before? Hate courses that rely entirely on a couple of exams for your whole grade? We know that these things can sometimes hold you back from pursuing your degree, so we’ve taken a different approach. We also know listening to long lectures can be boring and impersonal, so our courses are designed for you to become an active participant in the online learning community.

  Flexibility You can participate in your class any time of day in any location where you have an internet connection. You can even participate in class on your tablet or mobile device! Submit your weekly work when it is convenient for you up until the deadline, day or night! And no more running out for ink for the printer at the last minute! All your assignments are submitted electronically.

  Collaboration and Interaction Each course incorporates opportunities to you to collaborate and interact with your peers as well as your professors. Video content allows you to see both your professor as well as any information they share, and you can even search for keywords in the lectures! Many courses also  incorporate creative activities and assess your learning in more than just tests and quizzes, so you always have an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge.

  Accessibility Do you have a disability that makes learning a challenge? We offer videos with captioning and other tools and resources to help students with all abilities and disabilities succeed in our online courses! Furthermore, our learning management system was built using the most modern HTML and CSS technologies, and is committed to W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative and Section 508 guidelines. Accessibility is a top priority for our Digital Campus.

Northpoint Bible College Online Degrees are equivalent to on-campus degrees and are fully accredited through the Association for Biblical Higher Education.

One of the distinctive elements of Northpoint Bible College is the spiritual life on campus. Enrollment in Northpoint’s online courses grants you access to a spiritual community you never thought possible! From online chapel streaming to a live virtual prayer wall, you will have the opportunity to contribute to a rich, Pentecostal, spiritual atmosphere.

Don’t think that online degrees are any less challenging or engaging than what you would expect from an on-campus course! Our faculty are all experienced professors with advanced degrees in their areas of teaching specialty. They are men and women of God committed to empowering individuals to fulfill their God-given calling, not just dumping information in your lap! They are accessible and committed to God, Northpoint, and you, the student! Whether you just want to dig a little deeper into a course topic or are pursuing the full degree, our professors are gifted communicators who desire to help you succeed in achieving your goals.
Curious about how online degrees work? Wondering about how secure they really are? Northpoint utilizes Canvas by Instructure to deliver rich interactive course content to students all over the world. In conjunction with this, we also use software to support students as writers to develop their own voice and avoid plagiarism, as well as to verify identity and securely take tests and quizzes. This technology creates a secure online learning environment that ensures that each student upholds academic standards for success.
Be good at what you do. Northpoint is committed to training students for ministry. But ministry is a field that requires the development of many skills, not just the ability to write a paper or take a test. Therefore, most online courses at Northpoint are focused on helping you to master ministerial skills such as preaching, proper Bible interpretation, lesson planning, and more! We have developed innovative ways to help you develop and sharpen these skills in an online environment so that when you graduate, you have the expertise to be an excellent minister.
