Online Courses

Answers Education Online brings some of AiG’s best resources to your computer through reading assignments, videos with integrated study guides, live chats, and forums with instructors and other students—all designed to equip you as a believer in Christ.

Courses are currently not open for registration and are expected to start opening for registration in September 2016. Thank you for your patience while we upgrade our courses!

You’ll focus on exciting topics such as:

Current students
  • the authority of Scripture
  • the creation/evolution debate
  • how science confirms the truth of Scripture
  • a biblical worldview
  • apologetics (how you defend your faith)


We offer two course options for our introductory course, Foundations in Creation Apologetics:

APO 101 – This is a traditional 12-week online course that begins and ends on specified dates. In this course, students will enjoy spending 4–6 hours working on each week’s assignment. They will interact with other students and their AiG instructor through forums and weekly chats. In addition to seven online quizzes, students will submit eight assignments and a final project to their instructor, which will make up a significant part of their grade. Each weekly assignment or quiz must be completed and submitted be the end of that week. Because of the additional instructor time required in grading assignments and participating in forums and chats, this course is more expensive, but over and over we have heard how much students enjoy the interaction with other students that this format offers.

APO 111 – This is a self-paced course that will appeal to those with busy lives, or to those who cannot fit their schedules around our course dates. In this course format, students may begin at any time, and take up to six months to complete the course. Due to the nature of this course, there will not be any interactive forums or chats with other students, but students will still be able to contact an AiG instructor for assistance. There will be only three assignments to submit, and the bulk of the assessment will be through online quizzes and a final test. We created this course option because of the many requests we have had to make the same content available for those who prefer to work at their own pace, or who simply cannot fit within the APO 101 course schedule.
