Latin America Online

All of the LATTE professors are teaching courses online in Latin America. I have used Skype to teach Genesis to a student in Puerto Rico. I opened the course comments and questions for each lesson on my desktop, which he could also see. We both had good Internet connections so we could converse without any problems. We also used video cameras so we could see each other for the opening and closing sessions of the class. 

Many of our pastors and leaders in Latin America are dedicated Skype users. Our two pastors in Medellín, Colombia, use Skype to reach out to people in other cities and to teach. They also have an International Internet Church with members in South America, USA, France, Spain, that meets each Sunday using Skype.
