Post Shared study notes
All,

I'm planning on leading a small group Bible study, specifically focusing on digital tools for Bible study. I plan to invite everyone in our study to bring a laptop for use with theWord, or a tablet/smartphone for looking up Bible passages. What's an effective way to share the study notes I write with the group? In particular, I'd like a collaborative experience, where anyone in the group could add text or scripture references, which would automatically appear on everyone's device on real time.

1. Perhaps I could place my study notes on Dropbox, then share this with the group. This allows everyone with a PC to see my notes, but collaboration doesn't work -- to update the screen, I have to exit theWord, wait for Dropbox to sync now that the notes aren't locked, then re-start theWord. This is probably the least helpful option.

2. Use a sharing service such as Google Docs or OneDrive's Word. Then, any text I highlight then copy which contains scripture references will produce a very nice pop-up with the references. Or, I could copy and paste from the Web to theWord's study notes and read them there. This is reasonable, but requires a lot of manual intervention to continually transfer data between the collaborative environment (Googe Docs / OneDrive's Word) and theWord.

However, with either option, tablet/smart phone users can only view the text, but have no ability to quickly look up a scripture reference.

3. Copy and paste my notes into Blogger / Wordpress / etc., then add the reftagger (http://www.reftagger.com) script so that all Scripture references will pop up automatically. This provides very nice tablet/smart phone support, but loses the interactivity. I'm not aware of a way to include this in Google Docs or OneDrive's Word.

Are there better ways of achieving this goal? Thanks for any ideas!

Bryan

Hello Bryan,
unfortunately theWord is not design with such a mindset. No real-time collaboration is really possible. The best you could achieve is to share notes at the end by sharing your files through a file-sharing mechanism, as you already said,
sorry

Where in Windows 10 can I find the files that contain my verse highlighting, notes, and changes or additions I have placed into a particular commentary (edited enabled)???

Thanks in advance for the assistance...
