Naming Conventions

Collections

When creating collections using the Media Collection gallery it is important for you to use good names so that you can easily identify collections in the future.  Some tips include:

  • Start the collection name with full course code plus term code, e.g. ACCT1234_5154
  • When creating an assignment collection ensure you use the word assignment in the name so that you can easily identify which collections are storing student submissions
  • Don't name assignment collections Assignment 1Assignment 2, etc.  This will make it difficult to identify in the future.  Add course codes and term codes to identify which course the assignment belongs to.

Galleries

  • Start the gallery name with the full course code plus term code, e.g. ACCT1234_5154

Organise

Tags

Use tags to organise like material together.  If you are creating collections related to a specific course you may want to tag it with the full course code plus term code, e.g. ACCT1234_5154
