Ruby Edgar, who is totally blind, enrolled in her first Wilmette Institute course—The Advent of Divine Justice: Guidance for Winning the Goals of the Five Year Plan—and participated fully in the course, preparing a Personal Learning Plan, reading the course materials, participating in the course Forums, and, at the end of the course, completing a Learning Self-Assessment. To top things off, Ruby then offered to help other blind learners to navigate Moodle, the Wilmette Institute’s learning software. Read about Ruby’s pioneering online journey . . .

3. Some Answered Questions: Finding Paradigm Shifts in Understanding Bahá’í and Christian Theology

Eric StantonFor Eric Stanton, who lives in East Lansing, Michigan, in the United States, the Wilmette Institute course on Some Answered Questions became something of a journey through his twenty-seven years as a Bahá’í but also a plan for the future. He started by noting this:

Now that I’m revisiting it, twenty-seven years later, my interest gravitated toward the uniquely Bahá’í concepts that ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was presenting. I think internalizing the concepts in this book is going to be an on-going process. So, I plan to regularly reread sections of this text and continue study it in an in-depth manner. Read more about Eric’s insights . . .
