The Future of Open Biola

The Open Biola website has been discontinued, but new content and resources can be accessed on Biola University’s YouTube and Biola LEARN platforms.

Biola University places a high value on sharing biblically centered educational content with the world. But the methods for doing that need to remain relevant with the ever-changing landscape of the internet. In light of technological shifts, the growth of YouTube (where more than 90 percent of Biola's free educational content is viewed) and the costs of managing a separate content platform, Biola has decided to discontinue the Open Biola website — which debuted in 2012 as the first open learning website from a Christian university. However, the Open Biola concept lives on. Moving forward, Biola will consolidate all publicly accessible educational content into two platforms: Biola’s YouTube channel for all free content and Biola LEARN for all paid content.


Biola’s YouTube channel offers a variety of video content created and curated by Biola University, featuring majors and programs, chapel and conference messages, free educational content and much more.

Biola LEARN offers not-for-credit courses at a low cost so that lifelong learners can have access to content offered by Biola faculty.
