It seems that the Accordance Exchange (http://www.accordanc...1.com/exchange/) is wildly underused - the most recent post was Aug 2010! I would be very interested to hear about any concrete teaching ideas that Accordance has facilitated, particularly with the graphic search results. That is, actual examples of how the software has been used to facilitate learning. It would be great if others were willing to share Accordance's power when it comes to teaching ideas, and in particular posting screenshots so the rest of us can re-create the learning experience for students.
One example that I was recently enthralled by was David Lang's Accordance Blog post on 'Any Questions?', wherein it was visually very clear where the majority of questions occurred (see http://www.accordanc...m/Any-Questions). And indeed, one can search for all sorts of punctuation. Be careful however if you are comparing English translations, as some will be searching apocrypha, and include there hits in the results.
Another example which I have used was one in the old Accordance Manual regarding divine names in Gen 1-3, a helpful way to introduce students to JEPD.
Names of God in Gen 1-3.pdf 43.46K
Another which I am not entirely sure of the significance is the distribution of the names 'Ιησους' and 'Χριστος' in Luke-Acts.
Lk-Ac Names.tiff 109.56K
There are endless possibilities here, any other ideas?
