We built a homeschool starter library and made it available for free for attendees of the homeschool conference Teach Them Diligently in Columbus, OH this weekend. It got leaked on Facebook and went viral, so we decided to open it up to everyone. :)

It was supposed to end at midnight tonight, but we'll probably leave it open through the weekend. Feel free to grab a copy for yourself and, if relevant, your spouse and your children. But if you do, please do us the favor of letting at least five other people know about it who aren't Logos users and could benefit from it.

Thanks, and enjoy!

Hi Phil, 

That seems reasonable to me and I am more than happy to pass the details on to some non-logosians. A quick question: is there any way you could provide a basic list of the resources contained in the bundle? It would be good to be able to highlight some of the key resources (especially commentaries, etc.) when talking with friends. 

Thanks in advance, Liam

Thank you very much. A note to fellow users: although it has a good number of resources useful for all, it is also designed for American families. For instance, it includes the American Declaration of Independence and other resources on America.

I think the guys at Faithlife are very generous with this offer. My kids are grown up - but what a great blessing for homes school families!

Keep well  Paul

I am glad to see a homeschool package has begun.  Two of my boys use Logos on a regular basis.  I hope this opens up a market for homeschooling families.  Another place where this can be marketed is to the BIblebee.org community which is filled with homeschoolers.  The forum has almost 3000 members, most of whom are children. I will let the group know about this package.

Thanks for your generous offer. What a great way to introduce know people to Logos. I don't know many people who home school but I've passed it on to those I do know and if I think of others I will do the same.

Thank you so much! It’d be nice if we had a list of the content not just an overview 👍😁👌

First of all, thank you Faithlife for this move toward family orientation.  I think it's a good way to grow sales down the road as more people learn how to use the software and experience the benefits it has for their Bible study and spiritual growth.

I plan to share this offer with others, but would like to install it and look it over so I'm better informed before talking to them about it.  With the window for this offer being so small, I'll need to look it over today.  Since I'm already on the latest release of Logos and have purchased several bronze, silver, and gold packages in the past, how can I go about installing this so I see it as a separate install and library?

I placed my order but haven't run the Logos setup program.  However, when I start my current install of Logos, I have a message that an update of 270.5 MB is available.  I'm wondering if that is for the Logos 8 Basic offer and if it will be merged with my current library making it impossible to review the Basic package on it's own.  Confused

Can anyone point me to documentation regarding how to ensure a separate installation? 

I'm also wondering if there is any documentation as to exactly how such an install would work for the family members?  E.g.  Unlike my current installation which is for a single user, will the family installation allow multiple members of the family to have their own logins, highlights, notes, etc.?  If they have multiple computers, would two or more family members be able to be using the software at the same time?

Create a new user account on your computer... and a new user account on FL to "purchase" the package.

All installations are for "one user." All notes will be intermingled. You would need to create a new account and purchases for each user if you wanted to keep things separate.

The account is for "one user," but if you are using the same account, there is nothing stopping you from using the same account on two computers concurrently... but again, shared notes, etc.

Thank you Phil. Don't have a huge following but I posted it to Facebook and told my class

Thanks Phil. I added it to my library and have two other non-logos owners signing up.

This is really generous of you.  I do not often share on Facebook, but this is the best excuse I can think of.  I really hope this grabs a few people from my church.  We have a bit of a reputation for being afraid of technology...

+1 Yes Thanks Big Smile so talked with my Pastor today about him creating an account for each of his five children. Also shared this generous offer information with a few more people.

Keep Smiling Smile

Thanks JT!  All my questions answered in one concise reply.  Much appreciated.

Since I made my purchase of the Basic package from my regular login, I'm guessing the 270.5 MB update that showed up in Logos right after the purchase is indeed for the Basic package and will be merged into my existing library.  However, it also sounds like I can set up another account and make the purchase from there, in order to have a nice long time period to have a Logos install with nothing in the library except what came with that package.

Thanks again for the quick and complete reply.

Two different things were included: 

  • Logos Basic
  • A homeschool library

If you order your library by date, you can see which items were added to your computer on that day. If you made no other purchases AND if no other resources were updated, you will see what was added. This should not be construed to provide a full listing of what would be added to someone else's account. In all likelihood, you already owned much of the "logos basic" resources. In that case, none of the new resources were from Logos Basic, but rather from the homeschool library.

Here's what I gather is in the package, more or less, from after the "update" I downloaded immediately after getting the package.
