Getting the most out of Mobile Ed


Logos Mobile Education is a highly effective cross-platform learning environment that integrates world class teaching with the powerful study tools and theological libraries available in Logos Bible Software. Every course provides links to additional resources and suggested readings that supplement the lecture material at the end of every transcript segment.

This course was produced with screencast videos. These videos provide tutorials showing you how to use Logos Bible Software in ways that are tied directly into the content of the course. We are now producing Activities resources as a replacement for screencast videos. We plan on updating this course to include this additional Activities resource in the future for no extra charge.

    John Fuder has such a wonderful way of presenting what he has learned through his work within City's He is a shinning example of someone that is living it out. This course is not only worth taking, but worth recommending to anyone in small groups or ministries wanting to get real and make a difference. Thankyou John Fuder, may you shine even brighter for Jesus, reaching and influencing all God has called you to complete. Amen In Christ Lindsay
