This proposed Wikiversity policy addresses how courses should be named and numbered. Please do not use course number schemes in page names. Page names should be descriptive, and not codified.

Formal policy[edit]

All courses must be titled appropriately and concisely. Numbers must be structured in a logical flow and cannot be duplicated.

Course Titles[edit]

  • Courses that have one topic must be labeled as concisely as possible. For example,
October Revolution
(Specifically October 1917 in Russia). The title will be as simple as stated and the Course Title will reflect where (ie. Russia).
  • Courses that have a broad topic must be labeled as concisely as possible. For example,
Russian History
(All Russian History). The title will be as simple as stated and the Course Number will reflect where (ie. Russia).
  • Courses that are broad but limited must be labeled as concisely as possible. For example,
Russian Revolutions (1865-1917)
(All Russian Revolutions involving the soviets)

Course Levels[edit]

There are 7 levels of courses offered at Wikiversity

  • Primary/Elementary
  • Secondary/High School
  • Beginning University/College (AA Level)
  • Advanced University (BA Level)
  • Superior University | Thesis-level | Honors Project (MA Level)

These may be further generalized as:

  • College/University (levels 3 & 4)
  • Graduate (levels 5 & 6)
  • Non-standard
