Open Bible Credentialing
Digital Student - Open Bible Credentialing Track
About Digital Courses
This option gives the student a complete online experience with online book and exams. All course material is studied and completed online in a digital format. We have implemented the pedagogical and didactic tools offered by modern distance education so that you will have a better online learning experience. Students still meet in groups online once a week to grow relationships with fellow believers and apply the information learned throughout the week.
Students who successfully complete the Digital Course in Spiritual Growth will be rewarded with a special recognition. Also, this Digital Course is equivalent to Discipleship 1 for completing Level 1 INSTE.

Who can be a Digital Student?
A Digital Student on the Open Bible Credentialing Track is a student who wishes to take INSTE courses to fulfill academic or credentialing requirements. Digital Students do not need to fulfill any program prerequisites and do not need to have previously taken INSTE courses. Students on the credentialing track can also choose to purchase the physical interactive textbook for their studies instead of using the digital book. Pricing will vary.
What is expected of Digital Students?
All Digital Students are expected to complete all of the course work as prescribed in the course syllabus (attendance, exams, assignments, Beyond Academics, etc.). They are also required to have a Temporary Ministry Mentor, who will supervise and evaluate Beyond Academics as they study the Digital Course in Ministry Parts 1 and 2.
All students will study five days a week and then meet once a week with their group leader and their online group. They will take their exams online.
Benefits and Limitations
Digital Students may receive credit for the courses that they have successfully completed and may request official transcripts from Inste Global. All courses studied under a Digital Student status apply for the programs of study at Inste Global Bible College should the student wish to pursue a program in the future. In that case, the student would have to fulfill all of the program requirements and expectations.
