On March 24 & 25, 2020, we offered a special, two-day Accordance eAcademy that was free for anyone who wanted to attend. If you were not able to participate in these sessions, we have included the video recording for each session below.


"Students of the Word"

Accordance makes it easy to study like a Bible scholar!  As a student of the Word, your research will be more rewarding and your studies or writing of papers will be more accomplished as you learn the power of Accordance.

The Accordance eAcademy offers live web-based training on how to study more effectively and with greater results.  Far beyond teaching you the various features of an application, these workshops show you how to apply those features to your own study and service to others!
