** From June 2012, selected classes are available to be taken on-line. On-line students will attend class at the same time as everybody else and will be able to see everybody and join in the class discussion. On-line students will need to have access to a computer with a camera and microphone and be able to connect to the internet using a high speed connection.
Class periods are usually 1 hr 15 mins, or 1 hr 30 mins., depending on the course. Each class begins with a short devotional and prayer. This is followed by the showing of the DVD for that session. The rest of the class time is taken up with discussion of the material covered. Everyone is welcome to take part in that discussion, although no student is forced to do so.
Students taking classes for credit through the Sunset International Bible Institute will take the appropriate exams as set, and will submit work in accordance with the SIBI course requirements.
Students working toward a MBI certificate will take short quizzes and other assignments as set out in the course requirements. Students may take the class and not take any quizzes. This may lead to a certificate of attendance. However, all students are encouraged to participate fully to get the most out of their studies.
