 our Sunday school teacher is going to teach a series on Hebrews. and a friend of mine who is new to logos wants to follow along and participate in the class.  I suggested making a layout consisting of the Bible, a study Bible  and  power lookup all linked together would be a good starting point.  He thinks f making a collection of mixed resources  and searching that collection would be a better choice.  I disagree  what you  guys think?

If I were to be in the class wanting to the same thing, I'd agree with you.

I'd recommend doing both, because you need a layout of some relevance, whilst the collection should be pertinent to the study e.g. a rule of subject:N.T.Hebrews would find resources specific to the book of Hebrews (and not just commentaries). Single-volume commentaries on the whole bible can be added manually. The collection can be used for searching, and it is a quick reference to books that can be studied.

I concur with your custom layout idea. Depending upon the knowledge base that your friend is scaffolding upon, too many resources could be a distraction from the communal learning environment. Sunday School is not the place to dominate the discussion by quoting technical commentaries.

I have created a layout for Small groups, SS classes & preaching services that includes 3 translations (literal/"optimal"/dynamic) 1 Linked to Original Language texts, 2 study Bibles, a 1-vol commentary, & Notes from the NET Bible for quick review of textual criticism issues. I admit that my layout is too "information overload" for someone participating communal learning--this requires discipline to not follow every link on every possible rabbit trail. I must allow the 3rd member of the Trinity to speak to me through the current/gathered "Body of Christ" as well as the historic/published "Body of Christ".

I think your layout is more than enough. You really don't want a lot of gingerbread on a group study

I guess I am going to talk about this somewhat differently even though you and I will end up in the same place. If I were participating in a class and wanted to use Logos, I'd do most of the work before class and use notes to record any observations or any questions I had as I studied. Then all I'd need is Logos in a layout like you suggest and I could glance at the notes as I went along. I would not want to do searching in class so that would not be the approach I'd recommend. I'd do that sort of work at home and record what is interesting in notes that I could 'take' to class.

Really? And why is that?

Personally, I think it's the perfect place to bring "technical" issues into the light.

There is a difference between my "dominate the discussion" and your "bring issues into the light". Some personalities use abstract insights to display their "superior" knowledge [or what Paul calls "plausible arguments" in Colossians 2:4] in a way that intimidates and shuts down all participation by the rest of the group. Others enter the same environment with the posture of a learner and seek to learn from others in the learning community. If the precision of a Technical comment is introduced as a proposition to be examined by and shape the learners it is positive. If the "deeper" issues of a complex commentary are introduced to puff up the person introducing the issue, that individual is missing the potential benefit of group learning.

i.e. When I enter an art gallery, I'm not really interested in knowing about how the electricity is routed through the walls in order to place a light fixture that casts a certain glow upon the art. The artist may appreciate that there is not an extension cord taped to the wall to deliver power to the fixture that distracts from the art itself. A design architect may be very interested in how the space is designed to give each displayed piece its best appearance. Sometimes technical nuance (as often highlighted in a Technical Commentary) shapes meaning. Other times being able to cite that this is a "Genitive of Means" does not "build up the body" but puffs up the individual.
