Download all resources for a unit?

striderfcr 6 months ago updated by Arthur Lawson (Answers in Genesis - Web Support Analyst) 5 months ago 5

Is there any way to just download all the resources for a unit for the age group I want?

Every single time the site updates it gets prettier... but more frustrating to navigate. I just want a folder of the printouts for a whole unit on my computer so I can go week by week and prepare what I need, but now I apparently need to not only go into each lesson individually on the site but sort through every single resource in each lesson individually to figure out which ones I want before I can download them? 

It's particularly frustrating that I can't open the individual resources before downloading them. As far as I can see, I now not only have to download a dozen separate files, rather than having the option to download one file and then sort through that week's materials (or better still, download an entire unit's worth of materials in one zipped file), but if I'm not sure what each one is or whether it's useful to me I have to download it, then open it, then decide if I want it, then sort everything into files, for every single piece of material within every single lesson. It increases my prep time immensely. 

Edit: I also apparently can't download all the songs, or even view them all together anymore? I have to sort through every lesson to find the music files, and then download them separately.

Answer

Hello Emily and Jennifer,

Thank you for your feedback! I understand the convenience involved with being able to download all the files at once, however, we have many users that don't have fast/stable internet connections, which makes downloading all the resources at once difficult, if not impossible. For that reason, we have split out the downloads so that people are able to only download what they need, and in smaller pieces.

We have retained the older ABC Resources page here: https://myanswers.com/edu/resources/v1/, where you can still download the full lesson content in a .zip file. We are discussing ways to incorporate complete downloads into the new resources page (https://myanswers.com/edu/resources/), but I don't have anything definitive to share as of yet.

Blessings,

Arthur

Separate resource downloads

I would prefer that the video, powerpoint, and handout resources be separate downloads. Why download an 800 MB .zip just to use the powerpoint? Also, the videos could play from a stream service, in addition to the download option, for more flexibility.

Video files missing.

Dan 3 years ago updated by Gary V. 4 months ago 2

The video files listed in the middle school curriculum are not all available for download. For example, the "Kinds" video is still not there for Unit 2 Lesson 14, even though an answer to this same question from 3 months ago says it has been fixed

I have been unable to find the Six Days video referenced in the teachers guide, adult lesson 12. I have downloaded and unzipped the unit 12 resources, and it does not appear to be there.

Why do the verse slides for unit 8 not have the verses on them?

Micky Summerville Jr 2 days ago 0

I'm using the KJV curriculum. In Unit 8, I've noticed that the verse slides do not have the verses on them. Is there a reason for this? Is this what they are going to be like from now on?

Answer

Hi Kristine,

It looks like your share link for Lesson 122 expired at noon on June 9, 2020. I just manually re-set it to expire next Monday.

Please note that, as stated, the share links only last a week, so if you generate them too far ahead of time they may expire before your class actually gets to the lesson. For that reason, I would recommend holding off on generating them until you are a week or less from your lesson date.

I just generated a custom share link for your next lesson (123):

If you have any more questions, issues, or need your schedule adjusted, please let me know!

music access

ksumero 4 months ago updated by Ben Sherrick (Answers in Genesis - Technical Support Specialist) 4 months ago 1

I have the hardest time finding where to access the memory verse song. Each time I try the code it says invalid and I'm not even sure if I am in the right location on the computer page. Can you help. Its for Unit 5 (PMK05VIB)

Answer

Hello,

I confirmed on your account that you have access to KJV Resources. At this time, our new ABC Resources page only has ESV content. However, you can still access your KJV Resources and claim access codes on our old resources page at https://myanswers.com/edu/resources/v1/. I have added the verse music access code for Unit 5 to your account, so you should have access to PreK music as well.

Please let us know if you have any further questions or issues!

Blessings,

Ben Sherrick
