If the modules were written well, there could be a basic instructional thread people had to complete to get credit for the class, and then "excursions" or links for enrichment for those that need/want it because people differ so much in interest and ability level. This is really a good idea and could work very well--but only if used with a fellowship component running parallel to it, that people also have to attend to get credit for the experience.

This is spot on.

I work from home/online, its convenient, but frankly lonely. I work 7 days a week and have many young children, so for me to take the two hours out of the week to physically go to RCIA? Major inconvenience. BUT the sacrifice of my time and convenience make it a richer experience, and it was good to get out of the house and meet new people.

The module part is great in a supplementary capacity, often there just wasnt enough time to delve deeply into enough subjects, and I frequently found myself researching these areas online anyway. Had that been integrated into the course it would have helped.

I think I'll suggest it to the RCIA director at my parish next time I see him. i fear they're mostly technophobes though.

Turning the evangelization process into a sales pitch.

Having the feeling of being corrected. Those who are evangelizing obviously believe you are in error and want to correct.

Unless one has a truly humble heart one naturally hates reproof.
