Acadeum is the educational technology company that powers the new ABHE Online Course-Sharing Consortium. This innovative Consortium enables ABHE members to expand their academic capacity by sharing online courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Using the Acadeum network, ABHE members can access courses from other biblically-based institutions or offer seats in their own online courses, thereby expanding their academic programs, improving student success, and generating additional revenue.

He previously served as Vice President for Academic Affairs at the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities and as provost at Cornerstone University. A graduate of the Moody Bible Institute and the University of Michigan, Dr. Ostrander earned his Ph.D. in history at the University of Notre Dame. His publications include The Life of Prayer in a World of Science (Oxford, 2001) and Why College Matters to God: Academic Faithfulness and Christian Higher Education (Abilene Christian University, 2009). A Fulbright Scholar to Germany in 2004, Dr. Ostrander maintains an active interest in global affairs and international Christian higher education.

I believe the sharp and professional website that Caylor Solutions developed for us has been a key factor in attracting more prospective students, as well as improving the quality of applicants for open staff positions. Our previous website did not reflect the quality of our institution, but now site visitors’ first impression is excellent, and it piques their interest to learn more. – Dr. Bruce Cannon, Yellowstone Christian College

Evangelical Training Association
ETA serves as a bridge organization between academics and the local church. Since 1930, faculty from evangelical schools and leading churches have written transformational core course materials for lay leadership development. ETA packages and distributes the courses among churches, mission fields, and multiple school initiatives. The courses distill subjects in Bible, theology, ministry skills, outreach skills, evangelism, and leadership for today’s culture. It is imperative that graduates of faith-based schools know a ready curriculum is available to equip believers and volunteers for service.
