Your Questions Answered

August 10th, 2009 | 5 Comments | Posted in Questions and Answers

Wow! I have received tons of emails from people with question and comments about our Hebrew Bible study course. I don’t think I have EVER received so much feedback about a product.

In order to make things easier for every one I am putting all the answers here in one place.

Question: I had trouble with the survey. Did you get my responses?

Answer: A lot of people had technical issues with the survey and I apologize for that. But in almost all cases we DID receive your responses, which are very important to us. And the problem has been fixed. I thank you for making the effort and I apologize again for the issues.

Question: What is the cost of the program:

Answer: We are still finalizing the pricing. Sorry. Please be patient. We are planning to go live this week (see below) so you will know very soon!

Question: When will the course begin?

Answer: We are trying very hard to launch THIS week.  We are working on dealing with all the things that need to go on behind the scenes so that you can enjoy the course itself.

Question: How long is the course?

Answer: We plan that the course will be ongoing.  As long as we have students we will be happy to keep teaching them.

Question: I live in [fill in the blank].  Will that make it hard to “attend” the course?

Answer: Not at all!  Our videos, training materials and support forums will be online all the time so you can access them whenever is convenient for you.

Question: What do I have to do to win the prize of the free 3-month membership in the course?

Answer: Just enter a comment on any of the posts on this blog.  We will pick one comment that we like the best and offer the person who wrote it 3 months for free.  BUT: you have to comment on this blog; your survey responses are anonymous so we can not use them for this prize.

First Sample Lesson — Feedback welcome!

July 16th, 2009 | 19 Comments | Posted in Hebrew Bible Sample Lessons

Awesome news: Here is a sample lesson for our new course. Please give us your feedback in the comments!

And please, please, please answer the Sample Lesson survey. It only takes about 2 minutes and it will really help us to help you.

Some important notes before you begin:

1) There are two versions below. They are identical, but one is Flash and one is a .wmv. Which works better for you?

2) In the actual course the video will probably be split up into 2 or 3 different parts, so one can do just the reading part or just the translation parts by themselves.

3) Some of the intro remarks are for this sample only to give you an idea what we are doing. We will move most/all of the intro stuff into a separate video in the course itself.

4) We are planning on listing selected grammatical points covered in the lessons in a separate video or file for easy review.

Flash-based (like YouTube; can be sped up or slowed down using the cool MySpeed Plugin from Enounce.com):

===============================================

Windows Media format (.wmv):

IMPT: Remember to leave your comments and answer the Sample Lesson survey so we can tailor the course to YOUR needs. 🙂
