The MYS IT-labBible Online Learner is now set up for Biblical Hebrew at the Mekane Yesus Seminary in Addis Abeba.

Lutheran Bible Translators partners with the seminary to train 15 Ethiopian mother-tongue translators in a new Bachelor for Bible Translators. The Danish mission Promissio is funding me to introduce Bible Online Learner and My Biblical Hebrew at the seminary. In a pilot project we want to explore how learning technology may be able to enhance the classroom for students in training for Bible translation and for seminary students who desire to use the Hebrew Bible for education and research. 

As part of the funding, Lutheran Bible Translators has also provided a brand-new IT lab. We now experiment with adapting the flipped corpus-driven Hebrew classroom to an Ethiopian setting. The course is open to all first year students. We DO DUOs - two students partner to learn together, 30 learners sharing our 20 PCs.
