how the Good News Digital Classroom works:
Since you are signing up for a self-study course, after you register,
you will be given the webpage where the course begins and a password to
access it. There are theological reflection questions throughout.
You have a month to complete the course before your password expires. If you need more time, you may request an extension.
At the end of the course, if you have posted your homework assignments, you may request an emailed certificate that acknowledges successful completion of the course. This is useful for those who need continuing education for their work as catechists or in other ministries.
