Liberty Online Communities offer assistance with finding a church, videos for Convocation & Campus Church events, and spiritual support for those in need.  

The program will offer instruction within both the education and technology fields. Students will begin to analyze the different educational methods for instructing groups with diverse learning styles, children within special education programs, and individuals with different socioeconomic backgrounds. The courses may also provide students the opportunity to evaluate the theoretical principles of online education and the effective methods of teaching with education technology.
