SPACE logo is a golden compass on a field of stars.

The mission of the SPACE program is to provide numerous and varied opportunities for personal enrichment through learning. SPACE modules are designed to be academically serious but fun, focused purely on the love of learning and the joy of studying the material. SPACE provides fully online access to a serious but low-impact arena for learning, whether you are interested in building a systematic course of study or just pursuing eclectic interests.

Signum University believes in connecting learners with teachers, and with each other! SPACE modules, like all Signum classes, are based on real-time, online small-group discussion sessions. Our modules each last for one month and typically meet twice a week for an hour-long interaction under the direction of the module’s preceptor. Each module provides eight hours of class time.

The Blackberry logo: the word Blackberry in a pretty calligraphy font surmounted by a buff drawn rabbit couchant with dark ear-tips as the character in Watership Down is described.

Blackberry is our enrollment and tracking system for SPACE. All token purchases, course registration, and candidate voting now occurs through Blackberry, so please remember to sign up.

In Blackberry, you can:

  • Purchase Tokens: one token equals one module!
  • Check how many tokens you have
  • Enroll in Confirmed Modules using your Tokens: one token equals one module!
  • Vote for Candidate modules (Vote for up to six modules with one token. If your first choice receives enough votes, your token will be spent on it. If it does not receive enough votes, your token will go to your second choice, et cetera)
  • Add courses from the Module Directory to your Wishlist to let us know which courses you’re hoping to take in the future
  • View the modules for July (current), and August (confirmed to run), and September (candidates seeking votes to be confirmed) — and even spotlights and early candidates for October (to look forward to).
  • See your past enrollment history
  • Indicate your availability to help with our scheduling (it’s great to update your availability monthly to point at the Candidate month or the one following)

Step 1: Purchase Your Tokens

SPACE Tokens are each redeemable for participation in one SPACE moduleSimply open the Blackberry registration system to purchase. SPACE Tokens never expire; you can use them whenever you like, and you can even give them away to friends!

If you would like to make a gift of one or more SPACE Tokens, first make your token purchase through Blackberry and then complete our Gift Form to let us know to whom you would like to gift the tokens.

Step 2: Choose Your Modules

  • Enroll in Confirmed Modules: definitely running next month at the price of one Token, and you can choose a Confirmed module right up until classes start.
  • or Vote for a Candidate: offered for the month after that, will run if at least four students support it. The decision will be shared in the first week of the month before it was a candidate to run. You can also vote for up to five back-up modules per token: it’s instant run-off voting!
  • or Hang on to your Tokens and check out the Directory. The Communications Center will keep you updated!

Step 3: Wait for Confirmation

  • If you chose a Confirmed module, the Communication Center will affirm your registration and put you in touch with your preceptor
  • If you chose a Candidate module, you will hear by about the seventh of the month before it runs whether your chosen module received enough registrations and has become Confirmed.  If it did not, you can choose one that did become Confirmed or hang on to your Token.
