Prerequisites for the BibleWorks Workshop:
No prior knowledge of BibleWorks is assumed in this workshop but we must assume a basic working knowledge of the Windows or OS X operating system. Here are a few things regarding your operating system that we must assume all attendees understand without any explanation:
1. How to create a file using a program, save it to the hard drive, and then open it at a later time. For example, create a document using your word processor; save it and then the next day open it up again.
2. How to copy files or folders from one location to another.
3. How to copy text from one location to another.
If you are not familiar with any of these 3 basic tasks you should find tutorials for your computer online or just ask a friend or colleague to show you. You can learn all of this in just a few minutes. Please do so before attending a workshop.
Note to those with no Greek or Hebrew training:
While many users benefit from using BibleWorks with little knowledge of Greek or Hebrew, the helpfulness of BibleWorks (and other exegetical tools) will increase along with your increased knowledge of these original languages. At the very least it is strongly recommended that you learn both the Greek and Hebrew alphabets, as this small expenditure of effort will enable you to take advantage of many Bible study tools that are otherwise closed to you. Knowledge of the Greek and Hebrew alphabets is not a prerequisite for either BibleWorks workshop but it is strongly recommended.
