If I have a MobileEd course that specifically addresses a passage, such as BI162 commenting on Isaiah 7:14, NT331 being study on the book of Romans, etc., is there any place in the Passage Guide where the relevant portion of the MobileEd course appears? I am not readily seeing it under Media Resources, Media Collections, or anywhere else, but it seems like something that should definitely be there somewhere. Interactive resources have their own section in the Passage Guide, and there are way more MobileEd courses available than there are interactive resources.

Hi Matthew,

I created a collection of all the Mobile Ed textbooks then added that collection to the passage guide. If you need help with either of these post back. I am not at my Logos computer and cannot attach screenshots.

Thank you John. I do not know whether or not I would have ever come up with the idea of making a collection of the MobileEd Textbooks. I have been putting this through its paces this morning and early afternoon....WOW!!!!!! Thank You isn't enough. Game changer might be in order.

Seriously, without all of the sappiness, this is a great idea!

Bill

John, that is a good tip, and one that I plan on implementing. However, my question really had more to do with the availability of native integration of MobileEd content into the Passage Guide. A collection is certainly a reasonable temporary workaround, but there are now more than 500 MobileEd listings on the Logos website. I would think that is more than enough content to merit Faithlife adding the tagging or doing whatever is needed for relevant MobileEd content to show up in the Passage Guide with no special action required by the user. Perhaps this could be included in a future incremental update to Logos 8?

There already is a Courses section available in the Passage Guide that contains Mobile Ed content. How is it not meeting your needs?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I never saw that before... learn something new everyday.

Thanks MJ
