That is something that I forgot to do, although I verbally state my sources when I show/give the presentation. Good call Al.

P.S I am trying to get somebody to host the files so that the whole sile-sharing site can be avoided (some people wouldn't be able to access from work, WFS can't be guaranteed, etc). Any offers for mirrors would be appreciated, although I would like to keep it to a reasonable number so that any modifications made wouldn't have to be done a ton of times (i.e for each site it is mirrored at).

Allan,

Check your PMs. That original file is on my server and ready for all to retrieve when you give the word. I will get the other file from you and upload it if you like...

Re: Foundations Curriculum

John, I think I'm having the same problem. Did you get it figured out?

Thanks!
The files have been compressed, so they needs to be uncompressed. Right click on the file, and you should have the option to do something like "Extract here....." in the menu that appears. If not, you will have to download a program like WinZIP, 7-Zip or WinRAR (assuming you are on a PC.... click on the names to the left to go to the site of your choice).

I'm assuming this is the problem you have run into, so hopefully I'm not insulting your intelligence with Geek 101.

Re: Foundations Curriculum

David Wallach has been kind enough to host these files on his server, so that should make it somewhat easier to get access to the files. He just has to upload the files for the older versions of Powerpoint (97 - 2003), and then it will just be a matter of people inputting the user name and password (for his site), which will be his decision to post here, or have sent via PM (to minimize on bandwidth used, but that would cause more work for he (or I) to individually email people with the information).

As I mentioned previously, I will have to go in and make a proper bibliography at some point, and also make any changes to where I may have screwed something up. So, it may end up be a matter of having to download the whole shooting match all over again (not so desirable) or downloading the updated files, and a change-log being available so that any changes made are explained and/or readily apparent (i.e make minor changes on your own, or download a completely new version, etc).

I'm sure that there is likely a much better process for all of this, and if anybody has a suggestion to make it so, please advise, as I like to learn better ways to do any given thing, and it would only help the community out in the long run. I think a web-based presentation would be one solution (allows for quick updates, and the information isn't "dated"), but that isn't so good for those that don't have internet access wherever they are presenting (this was the case when I made my initial presentation). Maintaining 2 versions (online and offline, and having the ability to log-in occasionally and check for updates) is beyond my current skill-set, but is something I have been kicking around in the back of my mind, so it may be something that I pursue as a side project, and everyone ends up being a winner: I do the work, and you (and your students/clients) reap the benefits!!

Re: Foundations Curriculum

Hi All,

First, big thanks to Allan for sharing his hard work. If there is a big call for it, I can cobble together a 'white board' for online collab for this, but between working for GloboGym and catering and family and Recon Ron and.. you get the idea.



Two files, 'foundations.rar' (up and ready) and 'foundations_older_PPT.rar' (uploading now, should be up in a couple minutes) are located at

www.crossfitkitchen.com/allan/
login:crossfit
password: pukie

bandwidth really shouldn't be an issue, nor should consecutive downloads, if it does go pear shaped give me a shout and I will mirror them on another server.

cheers,

D.

Re: Foundations Curriculum

I'd like to thank David for being so generous as to host these files, rather than using the filesharing site. This will allow for more control over making changes, keeping versions current, etc. Any suggestions for additions are strongly encouraged, as this was based off of a timetable that was fairly loosey-goosey in terms of content, but also rigid in how many days we had to conduct it. If somebody has suggestions for a way of constructing it for more defined timelines (one or two hours per session, over a number of days or weeks, for example) please advise on how it would be better put together, and it shouldn't be too difficult to cobble something together.

I have been investigating a method of converting these files to be able to play in a standard DVD player (i.e hooked to a TV). This would likely make it much easier for many people to present something to people, or to have it available for people (i.e the clients, students, people who were receiving the presentation (bosses who would make a decision on whether CF would be used in their organization for PT programs), etc) to take home and view on their own, thereby creating a longer lasting impression.

I will look into this, and see about creating a more generic presentation (ditch the army-centric things, tighten up some of the graphics, etc), and post it for trial consumption. The problem being, of course, that it becomes uneditable once it is put into DVD-viewable format. I could create custom presentations (using a specific unit or organization crest, for example), but that would be dependant on how much free time I have. I've recently retired from the military, and don't have a job at the moment, so I have an abundance of free time
