Overview

The Logos Academic Training bundle is a complete program for learning the best ways to use Logos for seminary-level research. It consists of four concise courses designed to help any student of the Bible improve the academic rigor of their study and research skills by using Logos Bible Software. These courses were designed to help seminaries train their students to use Logos to successfully research, examine, and present on specific Bible passages or theological topics. Now, this level of training is available to everyone. Whether or not you have watched the quick-start and onboarding training that come with Logos, these courses waste no time and get you learning the best tools and features for academic study. All of the videos in these courses were created specifically for this bundle to ensure the training is focused and applicable. Each segment builds on the previous segment and demonstrates how different tools and features of Logos all work together as it presents solid research methods for someone wanting to produce theological papers or sermons. Each course examines different aspects of the same passage (Luke 20:41–44, where Jesus quotes Psalm 110:1), equipping you with the skills and tools you will need to research any passage or topic. The Courses Tool is there to guide you through the sequence and content of each course in the bundle to help you complete the whole program.

With less than an hour of video per course, you get directly into substantive training that you can review as often as you wish. Getting Oriented with Logos Bible Software (LT101) introduces the software’s tools and capabilities, showing you how to get set up by customizing Logos to suit your academic and research needs. Studying a Passage with Logos Bible Software (LT102) walks you through different ways to use Logos to interpret the Bible in context. Studying a Topic with Logos Bible Software (LT103) demonstrates how to make the most of your Logos library by researching topics to find answers to theological questions. Finally, Organizing and Presenting Research with Logos Bible Software (LT104) takes you through the final steps of applying what you’ve learned by sharing it with others through academic papers, crafting a sermon, or any other type of presentation, using proper citations along the way.
