Style Guide

Each section begins with a recommendation regarding what to include in content as you share it on the Coop. Please feel free to submit your own original materials, as well as materials created by others (assuming you have permission to share).

Each template type includes the the formatting you need to create your own entry. For example, putting ''' around text makes it bold.

 Look there are three apostrophes in a row (''') on either side of this text.  
 That is why it appears bold. 

The templates may at first seem confusing. For example, characters such as :: format text in wiki markup. In this case the two colons indent the text. We hope you can use either the blank format, or the example as a template to use when adding your own content.

This is here to make adding content as easy as possible. If you have suggestions for format styling or information to include, please try it out.

At the VSD lab at the University of Washington, we have started using [www.github.com Git Hub] as an online repository for some of the teaching resources we use (e.g., pdfs, slides, word docs, etc). If you would like to contribute to a larger repository follow the instruction (Link to be added).

about 10 years.
