Lonnie Spencer:

I agree completely with Matthew that the choice of courses should be under the users control. My reason is that if I am learning in order to achieve a certificate in one field, I want to be able to concentrate on that field. Or if I am wanting to build on an earlier course, with another course, I do not want to have to wait until FL makes it available. Or what if I have missed an earlier course I don't want to begin in the middle of a study. Or wait for the course to be offered again, whenever that might be. I think this is a great idea, but the lack of options on courses and my choosing the course of my study holds me back from signing up.

I totally agree. There is only one course that interests me offered now and I have finished it. Therefore with my monthly renew date coming up I plan to cancel til something interests me again. In originally signing up I did not realize the course offerings were so limited with no control by us. I assume it has to do with income generation for FL, which is reasonable, but can't we have some choice; a happy medium?

Next month's courses look more interesting. I decided to renew my subscription for this month:

"On May 1, the following courses will be added to Mobile Ed Subscription: Mobile Ed: ED101 Introducing Discipleship by Greg Ogden, Mobile Ed: NT101 Introducing New Testament: Its Structure and Story by Lynn H. Cohick, and Mobile Ed: NT306 The Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament by Craig A. Evans."

Hi Liz,

I noticed some courses are expiring from the mobile ed subscription next month and was wondering if those were going to be offered for purchase with a discount as mentioned earlier in this forum thread?

"Do I own the Mobile Ed Subscription courses?

No. Courses are available for a limited time. Courses will be available to purchase at a discount once they expire from the subscription plan."

Thanks

Jim

CM100, MI102, NT211, and PC201 are being removed temporarily from the Mobile Ed Subscription. These courses will return to the Mobile Ed Subscription soon. 

Once any course expires from the Mobile Ed Subscription, the course will be available to purchase at a discount. Smile

Is there any rhyme or reason to what's offered? If not, let me suggest one. It would make a lot of sense to offer these as a "semester" style of offering with a basic set of courses always available like intro to bible/NT/OT/Theology/History etc. Then offer them for a promised semester (Jan-April) and then a summer semester of May to August and then Sept to December. That way over a 3 to 4 year period you'd have access to the equivalent of a seminary offering. That way users would know, I've got these 10 courses till April or till August or till December.

I could also see a smaller subscription, like a one course at a time for $4.99 or something. Then let me subscribe to just that one course till I'm done with it and then sing up for a new one.

Liz Roland,

May we request CM151 Preparing and Delivering Christ-Centered Sermons.. by Bryan Chapell to be included in July subscription?

I like this idea. I'm not really interested in owning these courses. These courses are well made (and I can see why they are priced high), but I just don't see the value when it comes to the information provided. These are not equivalent to a college course.

Example: I am working my way through the Sexual Ethics course and it is basically a video version of Instone-Brewer's book on Divorce and Remarriage which can be had for less than 30 dollars. In fact, much of the supplemental reading is from his book.

I'm still on the fence about Mobile Ed, but this subscription thing might change my mind if done properly.

In fairness to Dr. Instone-Brewer, the lectures in many authentic post-secondary courses are essentially textbooks in lecture format, whether or not the textbook has been assigned to the course (or even been written). This course being a video version of a textbook is not in itself sufficient to serve as evidence that Mobile Ed courses are sub-college ones.

Perhaps, but I feel like I could have gotten the same information from reading his book - which is substantially cheaper than the video course.

Wow with a seminary credit hour costing around $400-550 I feel I am getting a bargain! I have thoroughly enjoyed & greatly benefited from the 5 Mobile Ed courses I have done so far.

Thanks FL for providing this opportunity to sit under top scholars in an engaging, effective and coordinated way with my library.

If you're interested in the lecture material now while you wait, this is one of his courses available on iTunes U. I "took" the course several years ago and profited tremendously. I don't say this to take away from Logos' version--I'm sure having it redone with video is higher quality (slightly different product), but if you want/need something now, iTunes might be the way to go.

That's quite possible. And, mutatis mutandis, also true of many authentic post-secondary courses.
