Program Message

This course is based on the underlying principle that you are a dedicated disciple of Jesus Christ, and therefore, you would never lie or make deceptive claims regarding your understanding of the course material; nor would you lie or deceive regarding the completion of the tasks you will be assigned. Other principles include the following:

  • Lifting others in the class
  • Using your agency
  • Showing empathy and love, and being humble enough to ask for help from your teacher and others in the class

All tasks assigned to you in this course are to be completed in teams. Your instructor will inform you regarding team creation. It is also true that you will never be given a team grade. Each of us here on earth work together to aid each other in achieving salvation and exaltation, yet we are individually responsible for our own salvation and exaltation. Nobody makes it to the Celestial Kingdom because they belonged to a group of good people. Neither should you expect to get an A just because you are part of a group of hardworking students that come to understand the topics of this course and are able to apply them.

Therefore, when you are helping someone you should never give them a code or math solution. Neither should you expect to be given such a solution when you ask for help. Instead, help those who will come to you by talking over how they are thinking about and approaching the problem, showing them how to search for and find an answer, and being loving and supportive. In other words, teach them just like you would teach someone the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Love them, help them find their own answer, and lead them to the scriptures.
