Hi all

I have just started the course of NT Wright's '15 Essential Biblical Texts'. For some reason, the course isn't loading properly on the webpage. Video's don't show in the actual course on the Faithlife page and the quiz sections do not open, 'We’re sorry, this content could not be displayed'. The course isn't available in Logos desktop either nor does it download when clicking on the button. Does anyone else have these issues?

I think this page shows the passages. You may need to expand the course content, which is at the bottom of the page.

the quiz sections do not open, 'We’re sorry, this content could not be displayed'.

My understanding is that Quizes are not supported on the web app so this is expected behavior. Quizes are only supported in the desktop application.

Also to my understanding the videos should work on the web app but I don't normally use the web app so someone who uses it more regularly might have to confirm that.

The course should be available in the Desktop app and the videos and quizzes should work on the desktop app.  I hope someone better suited to addressing your issues responds soon so you can make use of the course.

Yes, it was my understanding it would work on the desktop, but it doesn’t and won’t download. So currently unusable

Thanks! For $9.99 is not really a bad deal.  Good help for Sunday school material from what I can see 👍😁👌

I've just purchased and downloaded it and it works fine on my desktop (Windows).

What platform are you using and which version of the Logos app do you have?

I've just checked on my MacBook and it works fine there (including links to the quizzes)

It would be worth checking the version of Logos you have on your Mac. 

And try restarting the app and see if that helps.

I have version 9. I’ll try restarting to see if that kicks everything into action. Thanks

Restarting didn't help. The 'Download now' button does nothing when pressed. It is a strange one.

I've figured it out! My download settings were set from midnight to 6am! Changed the time and immediately Logos started to download the courses! Learn something new everyday hey.

Thanks for trying to help Big Smile

My quizzes work in my laptop but not on mobile.  The questions come out in English but the Truth/False option is in Spanish Verdadero/Falso :D 

Maybe cause the language is in Spanish in the software.  Nice informative course.

I bought a few Zondervan courses too and just pretended I'll be paying a monthly subscription for 10 months and own them, instead of paying the Zondervan Master course subscription and not own them.  Great sales going on this month.  I hope the textbooks go on sale soon too.  I have some but I'm missing others.
