Has anyone made training videos on how to use esword in bible study or sermon preparation using version 10? I think there is probably a lot that I could do with esword in my studies etc that I am not taking advantage of. The pdf does a great job of explaining the various features but it would be great to see how to fit it all together in a study or a series of studies. We have a lot of great help here providing instruction on how to make modules and a ton of materials to aid us in our studies but it would be great to watch someone put a study together explaining the various steps and the features of esword.

Very good Post I've never thought of making a video as you described It would be interesting and informative to know how other people use Esword for personal bible study and and how pastors prepare there sermons

I'm sure there a allot of different ways being that the key word is "Personal" everyone having a slightly different way


I have begone a search of the internet for just such information I will update as I find more

Most all will be out of date so it's not showing eSword 10 but give's a general study using eSword

May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

There are about a hundred videos on YouTube that purport to be about using e-Sword.
About half of them are not in English.

Most all will be out of date so it's not showing e-Sword 10 but give a general study using eSword


I'm not convinced that the differences between e-Sword 9.x and 10.x are big enough to warrant redoing existing videos. Some people might find it useful to show how to do the few things that are e-Sword 10.x only, and list the things in e-Sword 9.x, that have been dropped from e-Sword 10.x.

Despite the negitive comments. I believe it would be great if someone would make new videos! As this site continues to grow, there witll be new users that would like to learn all the in and outs of e-Sword. It is arrogant of some to assume that everyone can use e-Sword as easily or often as they do. And if someone has the abliity and gift of edification to make videos worthy of e-Sword and this site then I saw by all means go for it! I have been using e-Sword for over 10 years and still have not used all of it's featues. Now, some of that is because I don't have need to, but some of it is because I have no clue as to how to. So please someone make them and post them! It would be a blessing to someone.

Almost anyone can make training videos, with easy to use products like this:

Another free Bible software uses it for their training videos. Plug in a microphone and talk the user through what your doing. Seems to work great.

Thanks Josh. This looks like a good product. It would be a blast to make a training video using a product like this, or even just to share a Bible study. I came across GoView as well. I am not sure how they compare. If anyone has created videos with this kind of product I would be interested in your comments. If there are others who would like to see something like this, what would you like to see in it?

That's what I was wondering too. e-Sword is really just about the synchronization of text. When you view a Bible passage, you can view relevant comments in a commentary. Click a word to view its definition in the dictionary. View a book in the Reference Library. Click a word to see its definition from a Reference Book. Click a verse to locate that passage in the Bible window or click a verse to view its comments in a commentary. It all goes in a circle.

I wouldn't know what kind of training videos to make because everything, to me, is intuitively obvious. The three possible exceptions might be explaining the search options some might not realize. The second exception is to perform several demonstrations of e-Sword's layout--that is definitely not intuitively obvious (I only discovered recently windows could "overlap" after Dr. Dave's blog post).

The third is a question I'm asked a lot: how do I find the resource I just installed? Many think all modules appear in the Reference Library. Others try to find Topics/Books in the Commentary or Dictionary window. Some have even asked where Bibles display (seriously). I'm not sure how you could explain that with a video. I think one of the challenges is just PC literacy issues...

Beyond that, I wouldn't know what to show in a video? Not that I have time to anyway. :( If I were going to make videos, it would be for Tooltip to show new users how to make modules.

Maybe you'd like to create the video showing how to do The 2009 SBL Bible Software Shootout using e-Sword.

I wouldn't know what to show in a video?


Before today, I'd suggest copying the videos for BibleWorks and Libronix, except using e-Sword. However, since a judge has issued a ruling that implies that that type of copying is a copyright infringement....
(Granted, the case in question involved photographs, and the infringer copied an image that was inspired by the opening scene of Schindler's List, which in turn was inspired by a painting by one of the artist movements in Europe prior to WW2. Adding insult to injury, the technique in question was described in Photoshop manuals more than a decade ago, and can be found in advanced photography books from at least 1950, for those that want to do it using nothing but film, chemicals, and time. Of course, the entire technique has been described in books for, and about art, since circa 1925. Oil, not film, but the difference in effect is minimal. )

My suggestion would be start with the most asked questions and go from there. Sart with how to install modules, where they go, how to change the layout. All the things that we did when we first started. And any features that are special to 10x, and when updates come changes if they are visible. I would think looking at Bibleworks videos would be a good place to get suggestions, but as to copying them, not a smart thing to suggest even think about.
Maybe show how to make your own topical notes, and how to highlight. If you had never touched e-Sword before what would you want ot be able to do? Well, make a video of it. Just a few suggestions. Go for it if you are the type that is a good teacher.
