Thanks for the info! There's some interesting plans in there I'm sure to really benefit from and discover some new insights from my Bible study. Can't wait to try them out!

How does one turn Popular Highlights off in the courses tool readings? Almost all of them have that annoying dashed underlying and I don't see an icon that allows me to switch it off like I do on other panels.

Apologies if I missed the answer...I searched but didn't find it. 

I have a Bronze level.  Does the Courses tool create things based on your Library or does it not matter which Library you have?

AND, if it DOES base itself on your Library, what about resources you've hidden?

Thanks!!

If your library contains resources for a course, that course will be shown, otherwise that course will automatically be hidden. The bigger your library, the more available courses you'd be able to see and complete.

I haven't tested it, but I suspect that if a resource is hidden, the course tool wouldn't show that course, as its required resource would be "missing" from your library.

(In the upcoming Logos 7.2 release, you will be able to see all courses, even if you don't have the required resources in your library. This will make it easier for you to obtain resources for courses you'd want to take.)

I believe most—if not all—courses recommend at least Platinum to get maximum benefit from the course. Note that "required" resources are not really necessary to take most courses. You can still watch the videos and read the lecture transcripts, but you will not be able to complete the recommended collateral readings.

Hi Jacob

I am looking at upgrading to  logos 7 from your post it would appear that there are plans included in the courses tool included in the price is that correct. I can see on your screen print that for example that there is one on the birth of Christ. Are these plans something one buys separately or are they a part of the tool itself all included with the download and not something i need to already have in my library.

Is there one on Matthew for example

Thanks very much

Ruth

If you have Logos 7, the tool will show you all available plans that you will be able to follow. Lots of the plans require certain resources. If you don't have any of those resources, the plan will be listed as unavailable. At least half of the courses require you to purchase a Mobile Ed course to follow them.

There is an "Introduction to the Gospel of Matthew" that is mostly made of resources that are often found in Logos libraries. That has 37 30-minute sessions. Most Bible books don't yet have courses, though. There looks to be about ten Bible books covered so far.

Thanks Mark this is really helpful.

I was trying to get this information from the customer service staff but couldn't.

I really appreciate you taking the time to respond to my post.

As I probably don't have all the resources and I certainly don't have the mobile ed series it probably isn't worth me spending my money on it.

Thanks again

My son and I upgraded to Logos 7 without even knowing about courses.  We had been firing emails back and forth as we both explored the new features.  When I stumbled into the Courses Tool, I was really impressed.  I immediately sent him an email.  The response was a single word: Fantastic!
