Frequently asked questionsWhat is epic?
Epic is an innovative, project-based learning and LMS platform using media and technology to instill a Biblical worldview in students. As a homeschool parent, we know that you want to launch faith-filled, Biblical-worldview students to be the next creators and thought leaders of their generation. The problem is that, while you feel called to bring your students to higher standards, most Bible curriculums are lacking, and quality teaching resources are hard to find. We get that. Being parents, educators and youth ministers, we fight these same battles. We have a collective 100+ years working with students in classroom, homeschool and youth ministry settings, and have come together to develop the epic learning platform.
Epic is a combination of:
- Safe social media
- Project-based learning
- Assignment tracking and performance
- Record keeping and reporting.
