General Tips

Tags are case sensitive. The tag “Painting“ can be added to a group that is already tagged as “painting”

Tags should be granular: course numbers, weeks, instructor names, all separated.

When creating several groups that will share some tags, a comma separated  list copied and pasted from a document (ArtH 200, Spring 2018, M. Chan) will populate as separate tags.

Using Tags as an Instructor

Tags can help you organize your image groups. Typically, instructors use image groups as content grouped for lectures or exams. For this purpose, the names of the groups could be created like this:

Group title: “Terracotta Warriors – Prof M. Chan”

Tags: ArtH 200, M.Chan, Spring 2018, Lectures

———————————————————-

Group title: “Midterm Exam – Dr. Lipinsky”

Tags: ARCH, Exams, 2017, LIPINSKY

———————————————————-

Group title: “The Rise of Modernism – HANSON”

Tags: ArtHistory 300, Week Four, 2017-2018, HANSON

———————————————————-

If you ask students to make groups for an assignment, request that they include their name in the group title. This will help distinguish their groups from your own, when they are using the same tags you have applied to your course groups.

If you want  the titles of your groups to appear in a specific order by lecture number, use a leading zero for numbers 1-9.

Using Tags as a Student

If you are sharing your groups with your institution, including your name in the group title will help you quickly find your own groups, and distinguish your group or assignment from other students’ groups.

If you are creating a group for a specific course, use the course tag your instructor uses if one exists. Also include tags for the semester and year that you are taking the course.
