The Church has a keen interest in making the content on its websites, broadcast channels, and mobile platforms widely available in as many languages as possible. If you have a smart TV with a built in web browser, you need only connect the TV to your network and browse Church media. If not, you are a good candidate for an add-on product. There are a number of such devices; some are better or worse for streaming LDS media.

This article explores the more popular Internet TVs and how well they deliver LDS content.

Monday, 09 February 2015

You might be surprised to learn that priesthood and auxiliary leaders, clerks, and secretaries do not need to travel to the meetinghouse to perform administrative tasks in the Member and Leader Services (MLS) software on the ward’s computer. Instead, they can use the Leader and Clerk Resources (LCR) tool anywhere the Internet is available. This leaves more time for leaders to minister to members while having the information to do so close at hand.

You will soon notice a striking new visual design in the header and background of LDS.org. The new look does not end with color changes and first impressions. A series of incremental improvements are planned which will culminate in a new navigation and menu structure similar to Gospel Library mobile.

 

Research, user feedback, and direction from Church leaders led developers to make changes to keep pace with current technology and to meet the needs of the Church. The end-product will be more personal for users and easier to navigate, search, and use.

 
Improving Internet Access Following Meetinghouse Firewall Upgrade - Part 1 Print E-mail
Written by Sharon HowellI   
Tuesday, 27 January 2015

Because the Internet is a shared resource, last year’s changes to meetinghouse firewall configurations affect everyone who signs in to the meetinghouse network on their Wi-Fi-enabled devices. Becoming better informed about the changes will help you improve the experience for yourself and others.

This begins a two-part article on the new configuration. A second article will cover best practices.

The newest version of the firewall increases data throughput to better utilize the speed of local Internet Service Providers (ISP). The reconfiguration applies to Cisco firewalls furnished by the Church and sets up separate zones using dedicated ports. One zone is for the public network, another for facilities management, and where authorized, a special purpose or reserved zone for Family History Centers (FHC).
