Gao Lu:

. Media Browser is a part of "Logos Now," apparently, I don't subscribe to Now and don't have the media browser.  For those of us limping along without Now, we can do this: 

2. Search | Media  --> Search all media in All resources for "DeSilva"

3. Open Favorites.  Create a shortcut by dragging the open search tab over to Favorites.  Rename it "DeSilva Media"

4. Hope for a good internet connection.  

Final Analysis:

The available media , all 318 or 369 pieces (the jury is still out), are quite good. 

Thanks very much Gao.

These 20 videos are included in a collection titled The Cultural Context of the Bible and can be found in many L6 base packages, Logos Now, and Logos Cloud plus and above.

I've got 318 results from the search of "DeSilva",  while 0 result from the whole title "DeSilva Teaching MaterialsVolume" can it be sorted out more specifically.  Thanks.

0 result from the whole title "DeSilva Teaching MaterialsVolume"

That does not work in a Media search as you have discovered.

If you open the Manual that came with this download (it's in your Library) it has access instructions:

You'll find there that Passage Guide and Factbook are other ways to discover this information.

Nit:
can it be sorted out more specifically

Do you mean can you add additional search criteria?

Here's one you can do in a Media search: DeSilva AND Sardis

Media Browser (a Logos Now Feature) has a number of ways to drill down to smaller groups of resources. Here's a partial screen shot of the browser for this collection. You can see the facets you can explore on the left.

Derek, I really enjoy these videos and slides but is there a way to make them downloadable so we can use them when away from the internet?

Mark,

Thank you so much for your help. 

I noted that on your screen capture also indicated 369 results which is similar to my search this time.  In your Media Browser there's 20 videos, are those what we're looking for? 

As I haven't join Logos now, I didn't got the Media Browser, can I add a criteria to my media search as to sort out the 20 videos from the 369 results?

Thanks again!

I don't believe the videos can be downloaded (they're quite large). The accompanying slides can be saved, printed, or sent to Powerpoint or Keynote, so there are some options there for use without internet.

I carried out another search with "The Cultural Context of the Bible", nice to see that I got 40 results only.Smile

I've created a short cut of it in "Favorites", I didn't aware of the tool before.

Yes, they are quite large but I used to be able to download them after they opened in Biblia (I mentioned as much in this thread). I can't remember how but there must've been a download option in the right click but now there is no discernible way to download them. I do notice the FaithlifeTV logo in the bottom right - I don't remember that being there when I was able to download previously.  Downloading them wasn't a great option for me but at least I had that; these videos are useless to me if I can't download them as I can't stream them either.

I assume this isn't available in the mobile app...is it? And is that the actual title "Desilva's Teaching Material I"? I'll probably have to start up my laptop and check 'cause it shows I own it.

After a few days of trying I found this.

1.  The material is quite good.

2. I don't care about downloading videos, personally, though it might solve the video--watching problem

3. Browsing videos or slides is far too slow to be useful.  Slides and videos need to be separated somehow, topics organized and we need to be able to see more than a few media options at a time...and they need to load with reasonable speed.  For me they don't.

4.  Video's don't perform well enough over the internet to be useful.

I have reasonable internet service.  I am sure the DeSilva Teaching Materials resources will improve soon.  I hope. The potential is there!

Perhaps others have a different experience?

I agree with the material being good but like you mentioned earlier the videos didn't perform well over the internet.  I can't say I've had that issue but this is why I would ask that they make them downloadable.  My church has terrible wifi so I could never use these in a class unless they add them into logos or i try to go into the code and pull them out on my own.  Either way I don't see why adding them as a download couldn't be done.  The look at th book videos download as well as courses so why not this?
