Are there any assessments?
No, Disciple is not an accredited course and does not require any formal assessments. You will not receive a certificate or qualification upon completion. However, we do provide discussion questions to help churches facilitate meaningful conversations around the course material.
The focus of Disciple is to enrich you and your peoples understanding and relationship with Jesus Christ, rather than to serve as an academic program.
What is ACx?
ACx is a new platform for micro online courses (or micro-credentials), offered by Alphacrucis University College.
Disciple will be accessible online on ACx – so it is easy for you or your congregation to access the content online, anytime, anywhere.
To access Disciple, you'll need to create an ACx account.
OpenLearning to ACx account migration
