Are you watching Faithlife Today?

What do you think? Do you like the format? Is it too long, too short, too... ?

I watch them every day. 

I think the length is just about right, between 10 to 12 minutes is fine.

I enjoy seeing what is up and coming, and when it highlights how to use the software.

I like being able to access from within the mobile app.

I normally watch it every morning. It is a good mix of interesting topics as well as tips. I think the length is about right. It could be a little longer, but not a lot.

The recent series on different cities were very interesting.

Sometimes the interviews are a bit dull. Every interview should have at least one provoking questions that can't be answered with "I just wrote in my book"

I would watch it if it was available on the Verbum Home Page, not just Logos Home Page.

One thing that I’ve wished for is better feedback control. Many times we’re asked to “comment below” or something like that, which isn’t available depending on where we’re watching it, but more importantly I’d like to be able to respond to a specific section (e.g. the interview) rather than only on the entire video.

I agree on both points. I have no problem with parts of the interviews being lead-ins for a sales pitch, but sometimes, the questions that get us there are not very provocative.

Enjoying the videos.  Becoming a part of my morning routine.  I think the length is fine and it's a pleasure to discover new things that are available or coming soon.  Thanks FL Today.

I like it, and have subscribed to the RSS feed as the easiest way of getting content delivered. I don't listen to every episode in full (the content's not quite good enough for that), but it does a great job of advertising MEd in a way that also brings benefit to me.

I don't watch them but on occasion. I would be more apt to watch if they played within L6 itself.

What do I think?:  Very interesting and holds my attention.

Do I like the format?:  Yes. They have a good mix of discussion, mobile ed, and Logos tips.

Are they too long, too short, too ...?:  The length is good as it is, however, I would not mind if they were a little longer.

Comment: I really would like to see more of the Logos webinars, in addition to the "Faithlife Today" episodes.

I would like to see Logos webinars on something other than YouTube. All of the places I have internet access block youtube so I can't watch them.

I have watched almost all of them. Generally I really like them but I think they are coming a little too often. I can't always watch them every day so they sometimes pile up.

Using adventure and community to challenge young people to continually say "yes" to God

Somehow I recall Faithlife hosting the webinar videos on their servers, in addition to YouTube. I checked the webinar-archive site and it just has a link to the youtube videos. It actually makes sense. The only places that I know of that block YouTube (and other video sites) are coffee shops, some hospitals, and other free internet establishments.

Yup - good - although I don't see the value of the animations - sorry but there it is!

Keep innovating - but take care of the core functionality!

Blessings Kevin

Everywhere that I use the internet it is blocked. Some for reasons I do not care to go into here.

Out of curiosity, I did a google search on "where is youtube blocked", and found this http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.motherjones.com/files/socialmediamap-1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/03/turkey-facebook-youtube-twitter-blocked&h=450&w=630&tbnid=DUHVCeEmYkRaKM:&zoom=1&tbnh=131&tbnw=184&usg=__z7Y-KaRGFWX5TXic6lSlAFjQ5VU=&docid=cjMlr7rUYYKNyM

It's hard to understand why youtube, facebook, and twitter would be blocked by entire countries. If this much is blocked, why not just remove the internet infrastructure altogether? Oh well.

Hi Rob. You can subscribe to the RSS feed on today.faithlife.com, and if you use Logos, you can even add it to your home screen. We’ll share episodes here and there on our other blogs as well.
