I have gone through 3 or 4 classes since I started with Mobile: Ed courseware.  my current class is a start of a series: CO101.  This is the First class that I am seeing these "mark ups"/visual references for start and stop locations for suggested and extra reading links.  many times the reading is vague as far as where to stop especially (though where to start is problematic if the link isn't working correctly, as I have noted in a bug  in another thread elsewhere).

So, just wanted to say thanks for these visual references, great Idea.  I hope they are implemented in all the courses even retroactively. wow.just.wow, this simple little thing us tremendous addition for those of us that actually read through all the reading as available.

Brent, glad you're enjoying that feature. We added it after the courses from the Bible and Doctrine Foundations Bundle shipped, so any course after those should have the Start Reading/Stop Reading bars. We will be updating those courses at some point to include that feature, but I'm not sure when. For all courses you can download a Logos Notes file from the course Faithlife group that highlights the readings with a blue line to the left of the text.

thank you.  I knew about the groups, but not about the notes feature, I will check them out.

a note of suggestion:  I tend to multitask, especially when reading the materials after each video segment. What that means is that I usually "listen" the the reading with that Logos feature.  In fact, I turn up the speed to 1.4 which makes it more appropriate for my thought processes to absorb (as if I was reading).  while I can't read other things or watch other videos while I am listening to the reading, I can do other tasks that do not interfere with my learning experience.

Which leads me to the suggestion.  on the end-visual reference, it would be even more awesome to have the Logos reader stop, if I happen to be putting a load in the washer at home, or punching down lines on a 66 block at work, etc. :)  never hurts to ask, I always say. :)

Once I've mark a reading "done" the visual filter goes away. Is there a way to restore them?

Phil, if you re-click on the link that opened that reading the Start Reading/Stop Reading bars should reappear. You can also download notes files for each course that highlights all the readings for that course with a blue line to the left of the text. You can turn on or off this highlighting yourself. Those notes files are available in the Documents tab of the course Faithlife groups.

What would really be awesome is if it could load the washer for you and let you keep studying without such mundane interruptions. Wink
