Edvance360, a leading provider of eLearning services and software solutions and a CODiE 2011 winner, announced a partnership with Holy Apostles College & Seminary and the Catholic Distance Learning Network to provide a Massive Online Open Course covering material from two certification programs at no cost to participants in the fall 2012 semester.

“In collaboration with the Seminary Department of the National Catholic Educational Association, we at Holy Apostles College & Seminary are excited to announce our free, online open course, which will be available to more than five dozen Catholic seminaries, several hundred Catholic high schools, and almost two hundred Protestant mainline and evangelical theological schools. These materials from the Catholic Distance Learning Network’s certification courses will be provided at no cost to participants. Any theological educator is welcome to sign up for the MOOC at http://www.hacsmooc.cc,” said Sebastian Mahfood, Director of Distance Learning at Holy Apostles College & Seminary. “We chose to partner with Edvance360 because we found their tools to be robust, yet easy to use.
