AVLN Quotes from the Distance Learning Conference Summer '01.
Note: The name has changed to AVLN: Adventist Virtual Learning Network, as of September 2001.
AVLL is a group charting the course for a successful learning environment for the future. - Bob Paulson, PUC, Comment at the Distance Learning Conference '01.
AVLL is the future and where we are going with the various types of mediums that we use for distance education. I'd like to see AVLL bring everyone together so that we can go with one medium and put a lot of money into and make it a really strong and powerful program that would be beneficial to most of our children who need it out there for education. - John Davidson, Silver State Adventist School
We are like Caleb and the children of Israel, We stand at the edge of the Jordan and we are ready. God has provided, and if we have the faith we can go forward from here and do this work. Andrew Pfiefer, Andrews University
It is encouraging that we all have problems. We are all starting out there and many times we feel like we're all alone but we're not alone! - Helena Gregor, Andrews University
AVLL has been the best thing for Adventist education that has happened, because it gives us the opportunity to link different institutions, different researchers and practioners, in order to help them. It gives us the opportunity to share knowledge and research that we have been doing in different countries and states in the United States. - Rafael Molina Director of Virtual Education, Hawaii Conference
AVLL to me is a real God-send, in that it provides a support mechanism for me to think about, to reflect, to share my thoughts with others, to daydream, brainstorm, a whole range of possibilities. The bottom line is to find ways and means of reaching people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to engage in a very meaningful way with us towards the glory of God. Don Roy
