AN ONLINE course designed to teach the fundamentals of religious education began last July 4.
The Certificate on Religious Education Distance-learning Online (Credo) a 21-unit and two-semester long certification program is a share of the Institute of Religion in the Simbahayan project. It is also the University’s way to respond to the need of the people to be evangelized.
“Through the Simbahayan, we’ll be able to reach the grassroots level, where our catechists visit different provinces,” said Religion professor May Erika Bolaños, who is also one of the online instructors.
Credo is intended for those who teach religion subjects but do not have a degree in religious education, including catechists who did not undergo a formal training. Computer literacy and a bachelor’s degree in any four-year program are the requirements of enrolling Credo.
The first 72 enrollees of the online program came from seven participating schools and seminaries in Aklan. B. D. Nicolas
