Gospel Study Journal – News (11/05/2012)

We have an update on the progress of the Gospel Study Journal!  We’ve been working our tails off to get the last parts of the study journal designed and put into place.  We’re almost ready to make it available to folks who want to experience a brand new way to study the Gospel.  We are thrilled to make this available!

After the study journal is made available, we would like to put together a separate section.  Using this section, users can request that we add certain features or tools to the study journal.  Additionally, you’ll have the ability to vote for those features or tools that you really want added.  Then, each time we are ready to add new things to the study journal, we’ll take a look at what has the most votes.  That way, we’re adding the things that you want.

For more details on the journal we’re referring to, see “The Gospel Study Journal.”

Study Journal Progress

Studying the Gospel has been important to me for a long time.  The system hosted here has also been available for a number of years.  I’m re-writing it so that it is usable for everyone, and not just myself.  We’re making progress.

The Gospel Study Journal has all of the mechanics for doing what it needs to, but it isn’t quite polished.  That’s what the new version is all about.  So far, it displays about 25 entries per page.  The entries alternate colors so that it’s easy to view.  I have paging buttons to move through your collection of entries. I have a rudimentary search available.

My focus is making it as easy to use as possible.  This enables just about anyone to study the gospel in a simple and easy way.  In future releases, I would love to have localization set up so that we can translate it for folks who may not speak English.

Although the progress is slow, it’s coming along nicely.  It is worlds better than what is available now.  Subscribe to the RSS feed to keep appraised of progress on the new version of the Gospel Study Journal.
