Style guide -- capitalisation

Jump to: navigation, search

Great job on the survey. As I read through the questions, I noticed some inconsistency in capitalisation. A few suggestions:

  • Open education resources: seems to me that this is used conceptually rather than as a proper noun. I suggest we use lower case.
  • Creative Commons: In a quick look I didn't find a definitive style guide on capitalisation. Although logo is lower case, the actual license name is uppercase. I suggest we use upper case. (See second heading for lower case use, versus general upper case use.)

Just thought I'd post these since it seemed like we should come to consensus on this early in our work.

Hi Alison,

Thanks for the feedback on the survey questions. I think this will provide valuable data on contemporary thinking among educators relating to the sharing of knowledge -- but also a nice feature to give immediate feedback to learners on the course.

I agree with both suggestions for the style guidelines for this development. Consistency is more important than individual preferences for this task imho. Draw a line in the sand and post these guidelines to the list ;-). We'll follow the recommendations.

Agreed, this will be a good tool to learn about what educators are thinking on this issue.

I'll make the changes on the survey as suggested. I noticed a style guide page for the project, so I'll add these as style guidelines. (I'm hoping to get time in the near future to review the content pages.) I'll post a link to the style page, once revised, and ask for additional suggestions.

Really appreciate your contributions -- thank you :-D.

Your a skilled editor and WE need this input to fix up my lack of attention to detail. Yip -- have set up a style guideline page for this project to focus on consistency decisions unique to this project. Eg, naming conventions for all the CC license ;-).
