Can a student have multiple tutors?

Yes, it is possible for a student to have multiple tutors. Students will always have a main-tutor, but it is possible to transfer (override) this. The transfer must be made for each class. To do this, go to the “Course” menu at the top of the page. Then you need to choose which course you want to work with. Near the bottom is an “Assign a Tutor” button. By clicking this button you can change the assigned tutor. 

In the “Student” column you can set the tutoring parameters. You can assign a tutor for an individual homework assignment or for a category of assignments.

Clicking the “Filter” button allows you to choose which assignments, categories, or meetings should be assigned to a specific tutor.

In the last column you can assign a Tutor to the selected assignment, category, or appointments.

Is it possible to restore a deleted course?

No. When a course is deleted, then so are all of the homework assignments, appointments, and attendance records in that course. In the case that a course is deleted on accident, you should contact us as soon as possible to discuss options for moving forward.

Is it possible for a student to take Bible Survey Online as an individual?

In most cases it is not possible. You can contact us at and we will consider which possibilities would be open to you.

Questions from Tutors

Are there answer keys for the book summaries?

The EBTC does not provide a “master answer key” for the book summaries because there really is no one way to summarize a book. What we do provide is a template with the themes and information that a student must identify in his/her summary, regardless of how the student writes it up. Tutors can then use these templates as an aid in correcting student summaries.

Questions from Students

Why is my assignment not being completely saved?

That can happen when you do not have a good connection to the internet or in the case that you have forgotten to click “save.”

A way to retrieve lost text is to click on the “TODO” icon to the top right. All changes will be saved here from which previous versions can be restored.

Payment Questions

Will my expenses be refunded upon cancellation?

Yes, proportionately. Per processed Bible book, we will refund the costs accordingly. However, after 50% of edited books on the Bible, no costs will be reimbursed.

Will each student receive an invoice/bill for the course?

No, invoices will be issued on a school or class basis.
