These naming conventions describe useful rules for naming things. Naming conventions help Wikiversity participants quickly locate and understand the topic of each learning resource. This policy describes Wikiversity's page and page section naming conventions. For information on how to organize pages see Wikiversity:Namespaces.
Keep names simple and concise 
Educators often know more than learners do about a topic. For example while an educator might know what "Vulpes vulpes" means, "red fox" is more likely to be immediately understood and found by the majority of English learners who wish to learn about red foxes. By using simple and concise Page and section names that avoid undue expectations, learners should be able to quickly locate learning resources and understand what to expect.
A common temptation is to include course and lesson numbers ("Biology 101", "Biology/Lesson 2", etc.) in page names. However you should avoid their use, because conventions at brick and mortar schools vary, learners may have preexisting expectations about the content of numbered resources, and some learners may be completely unfamiliar with their meaning. Schools that insist on using them must document their conventions in a highly visible place.
You can use title or sentence casing for pages and section names. Please be consistent with all pages that are part of the same course or curriculum.
Acronyms and abbreviations 
Spell out abbreviations and acronyms in page names. Many acronyms have more then one possible meaning, and are not universally understood. For example USA could be "United States of America" or "Union of South Africa". By avoiding acronyms and abbreviations in page names learners are more likely to find exactly what they expect.
English Dialects 
You can use whatever dialect of English you want for page and section names, just be consistent. For example, if you use American English spelling for a page name, you should also use American English throughout the page.
