In Christian Education: Foundations and Technology, Andrew Peterson provides a broad overview of what it takes to create and run a Christian course, program, or school. The course begins by exploring foundations such as biblical theology, motivations, and goals, and then moves on to technical aspects such as instructional design, modes of communication, and media. Dr. Peterson then discusses aspects of teaching K–12 students, with a focus on educational psychologies, teaching methods, and academic disciplines. He concludes by examining adult Christian education in the contexts of church ministry, workplace, and civil community.

Getting the most out of Mobile Ed


Logos Mobile Education is a highly effective cross-platform learning environment that integrates world class teaching with the powerful study tools and theological libraries available in Logos Bible Software. Every course provides links to additional resources and suggested readings that supplement the lecture material at the end of every transcript segment.

This course was produced with screencast videos. These videos provide tutorials showing you how to use Logos Bible Software in ways that are tied directly into the content of the course. We are now producing Activities resources as a replacement for screencast videos. We plan on updating this course to include this additional Activities resource in the future for no extra charge.

    Not overly sold on the lessons themselves, but they are by no means inadequate. What I love is the solid and diversified reading list, in a sense truly educating the educator before the educatin', if you catch my drift. A unique and informing addition even for those studying Christian education in a formal context.
  2. James Doyle Moore
    I have been enjoying this series since Logos and Liberty University made it available for students. Dr. Peterson is awesome. I think I even noticed him smile once on one of the videos! Seriously, this is a blessing for all who want to learn about Christian Education.
