I create content folders, process folders, resource folders and archive folders.
(I use a boilerplate system, and drag a set of pre-named folders into the workspace.)
I use a numbering system.
I number file folders of course content…
I use a lower-case naming system for process and tools folders.
I use a zzz-xyz naming prefix for Archive folders. (Templates from re-used content go into the Archives, once repurposed and editid.)
I transfer the presentation outline to an Open Source Learning Management System (Canvas)…by creating Modules for each topic.
And I create content with HTML – Dreamweaver.
Dreamweaver makes connecting links (associations easy).
I create mind maps, and place program-formatted maps in a “mind-maps” directory, and Mind Map Images in a “mind-maps” folder withi the images folder.
I also number images, Mind Maps, Wireframes, Banners and other graphic content with the associated content folder.
Sub-item Content gets numbered as…
If I need to re-order, I use “Global Search and Replace” software [WildEdit, or Dreamweaver]. (Copy to another directory, rename all, and copy back.)
I prefer organization to stress and confusion.
The up-front set-up work infestment pays off in time saved in searching for content.
