An online companion to Discovering Intelligent Design is now available featuring short videos by co-author Casey Luskin introducing the six main units of the course and highlighting their key themes. It also includes detailed outlines and online quizzes for each chapter. Best of all, the online companion is absolutely free!
“The online companion is intended to make Discovering Intelligent Design even easier to use,” explains Janine Dixon, Educational Outreach Coordinator at Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture (CSC), which published the curriculum. “The short video lectures and chapter outlines will make the course more accessible for independent and self-paced learners, and the online quizzes will provide instant feedback on whether you are actually learning the material.”
Because the quizzes will be automatically scored, homeschool and private school teachers won’t have as much grading to do when using the curriculum.
The Discovering Intelligent Design online companion is offered through DiscoveryU, Discovery Institute’s new e-learning platform set up in conjunction with the elearning provider Thinkific. The platform is designed to be equally easy to use on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.
As mentioned already, you will be able to enroll in the online version of Discovering Intelligent Design for free, but you will need to purchase a copy of the textbook and DVD to get the most out of the experience.
