Classification is important

Dear Brent,
Please also look at the following site: http://www.library.umass.edu/catalog/class.html

We need to suggest that each page created in WikiEd should have Category. The category may be of 3 types, adn as many in each category be given by the page creator. Giving category should be a compulsory activity. The three types of categories are:

  1. Subject heading as per a taxonomy decided (Only approved terms from the list to be used)
  2. Document Usage Type (e.g. Book, Article, Handout, distance learning material)
  3. Nature of Document (e.g. Review, Opinion, Lesson, Curriculum)

Category tags

I use category tags to sort things by grade. The categories can then function as a search term to bring up all of the things for one grade level: first grade for example

Now, for the wiki magicians: if you can come up with a way to combine categories (for example 'biology' and 'first grade'), then category pages could function as Boolean searches for subject AND grade level AND resource type (lesson plan, image, etc).

A consistent list of category tags would be needed for this all to work. In the absence of the Boolean idea, a table of categories could be established:

Subject Grade 1 Grade 2 Grade 3
Biology Biol1 Biol 2 Biol3
Poetry Poet1 Poet2 Poet3

Generators of content could liberally sprinkle in the categories that best described their content.Dmccabe 04:08, 19 November 2007 (CET)
