Bible Courseware from Moody/Logos

Published: May 27th, 2004

According to a recent press release, Moody Distance Learning Center (MDLC) and Logos Bible Software have become partners in order to develop Bible courseware on CD-ROM. AM Bible Courseware is expected to be ready this coming Fall. The list of courses that will be made available can be found here. An online demo, as well as a general overview in PDF are also available. The most relevant part of the press release reads thus:

“Many people cannot attend seminary or a Bible school, be it busy pastors, lay leaders, housewives, businesspersons, college students who want supplemental material to their current education, or those who simply consider themselves too old to attend school,” said Bill Blocker, division manager of MDLC. “AM is practical, available to anyone within reach of technology, is not partial to distance or location, and will not interfere with an individual’s daily responsibilities.”

The combined approach — providing Moody’s proven and effective method for biblical education along with a wealth of readily-available research and study resources — will equip learners with the knowledge and skills they need for self-directed study as they mature in their Bible study. AM incorporates quizzes and exams to gauge personal learning and comprehension. As learners complete courses and pass the exams, they will receive a certificate of completion verifying their proficiency in that particular topic of study.

“We’re excited about combining Moody’s expertise in distance education curriculum with our advanced digital library technology. This integrated study environment is a huge advantage to students. It boosts the quality of their experience, and direct linking between Moody’s courses and our libraries provides greater assurance that learners will follow through with additional research,” said John Bryant, director of special projects at Logos. “In addition, our environment doesn’t require online connectivity to access materials, so learners can study anywhere and have all their materials and a complete library with them.”

I personally think that taking the courseware route is a natural development of Logos’ LDLS. The amount of material that is becoming available in this electronic format is quite impressive, and can be adapted to suit the needs of a variety of people in different settings. Let’s remember that Internet access is not readily available to everybody, and courseware on CD-ROM
or DVD-ROM can be a very valid alternative. The nice thing about it is that you can have the study materials and the reference library in the same package.
