>>Standardise 's's to 'z's (i.e. standardize :-) for .us readers.
Agreed. I had wondered about this as well, but didn't want to cause an international incident.
>>No split infinitives - "to boldly go" --> "to go boldly" for .uk readers. >>Apostrophes for possessives only (not plurals) for .uk readers.
No problem with either of these, but you can help me by keeping an eye for these. I suspect I'm one of the larger offenders.
>>Consistency with terms - this need not be too rigorous (e.g. depending on context 'compose' may be replaced with 'create'/'build'/'develop'/'produce' as appropriate) - but at >>least get it right for the chapter/section headings and short-cuts.
I went through the handbook on first pass looking for inconsistent terms. If you find any, by all means change them.
Shall we standardise on "or" for words like "colour"? (for .us readers).
Should we permit incomplete sentences?
e.g. "Over 250 links, with updates on OCW and wiki sites. License varies." (See "Learning Objects.net" on this page).
The repository sections are the only place (to my knowledge) that has incomplete sentences. I felt that it wasn't too distracting and that it was in line with the sort of definitional style of the repository listings. However, if you feel it is distracting, then they can be changed.
Re: Apostrophes for possessives only (not plurals) for .uk readers.
- The plural of CMS is CMSs
- The plural for OER is OER as the 's' is embedded in OER ("Open Educational Resources").
- An OER's components.
- A CMS's registered users
Referring to many CMSs and OER:
- The CMSs' features may be compared here.
- The OERs' licenses would need to be compatible.
>>The plural of CMS is CMSs >>The plural for OER is OER as the 's' is embedded in OER ("Open Educational Resources").
I wonder if that might be confusing, making OER an exception.
>>The OERs' licenses would need to be compatible.
If the "s" is embedded, shouldn't it be OER' (though that seems strange).
Yes - strange as it may seem :-). So I would go with OER' for plural possessives.
