Comment:      Re: SHK 21.0364 Files of Interest to Teachers, Students, and 
Scholars of the Early Modern Period

I'm not sure anyone has yet thanked Hardy for his remarkable generosity in 
sharing these splendid powerpoints. I'm just about to teach yet another 
introductory class on Shakespeare, and I will be saved untold hours of work -- 
or, really, I'll be able to do things I probably wouldn't otherwise be able to, 
given the usual limits of time and energy. The Powerpoint on Life and Times is 
especially rich in materials of all sorts, and by cutting and pasting, one can 
create all sorts of useful variations for any number of teaching purposes. I am 
deeply in Hardy's debt, and he sets a high standard for open collegiality that 
we should all strive to emulate.
 
Thank you, thank you.
 
Hannibal

[Editor's Note: Thank you, especially for the kind words. It is my pleasure to 
share these labors of love with anyone who might wish to use them for teaching 
purposes. And folks should also consider examining Steve Sohmer's version of 
Shakespeare's Life. -Hardy]

With the exception of my OCD approach to grading papers, I miss teaching a great deal. Having not 
yet gotten any offers to do adjunct teaching, to continue to have an excuse to keep revising my 
teaching materials one thing I have done is to make some of the powerpoints from my 
Shakespeare courses available on the Internet for those who might want to use them (teachers-
especially those at the beginning of their careers-students, and even scholars of the Early 
Modern Period).

I gave the English Department at my three times alma matter the University of Maryland, College 
Park, a large collection of the materials I have gathered and developed in my years of teaching. 
When the updated SHAKSPER web site is completed, I plan to put many more of my materials than 
I have already on the Internet for reading or downloading. Until then I will continue to distribute 
my powerpoints, as long as they are used strictly for educational or research purposes and NOT 
for any commercial enterprise. This stipulation is, of course, so that I will remain covered by the 
fair use exemption of the copyright laws. 

You may download these powerpoints at the following locations; however, please keep in mind 
that many of them are large files that will take a long time to download even with a high speed 
Internet connection. Also, be sure to type the file names exactly as they appear, case matters.

http://www.shaksper.net/~hcook/Life.ppt
http://www.shaksper.net/~hcook/Theater.ppt
http://www.shaksper.net/~hcook/Ideology.ppt
http://www.shaksper.net/~hcook/Texts.ppt
http://www.shaksper.net/~hcook/Tudors.ppt

Should you have any problems or if you do not have the time or bandwidth, send me a clearly 
labeled e-mail with the address you would like me to reply to prominently identified in the text of 
your request. I now have two "cloud" services-my MobileMe account and my SendStuffNow 
account from SmithMicro the company that owns several my software programs-I can use these 
"cloud" accounts to distribute large files to people who request them. I will use SendStuffNow to e-
mail you a link that you can click on to have the files transferred quickly and easily to your 
computer. (Disclaimer: I have no financial or other connection with SmithMicro.)

Since the beginning of this new academic year, I have gotten several requests for my powerpoints. 
Steve Sohmer used my Life of Shakespeare to create his own presentation. He rearranged, 
amended, and annotated my slides; he deleted some of them and added some of his own. He then 
gave his version to professional graphic designers, who further polished it. He has given me 
permission to distribute his version to anyone who would like to use it (with the same 
stipulations, of course, as I have made above).

You may download Dr.Sohmer's Shakespeare's Life from my server at the following:

http://www.shaksper.net/~hcook/Shakespeare's Life.ppt

Or you may send me a request and I will e-mail you a link you can use to have the file quickly 
delivered to your own computer. Again, please clearly identify your request in the Subject line of 
your e-mail and the address of the e-mail account to which you would like me to send you the link 
in the body of your message.
