Further information/problem description

As media items are student-facing, standards are an easy way to keep things organized, consistent, and meaningful.

NOTE: any text between angled brackets <> refers to a variable, e.g. if you are working within Herbology 101, then <course title> would correspond to Herbology 101

NOTE2: for consistency, separators in names should be underscores, e.g. Textbook_Herbology_101, not Textbook_Herbology-101, Textbook-Herbology_101, or Textbook-Herbology-101

NOTE3: Names should use PascalCase, i.e. the first letter of every word in the identifier is upper case, e.g. Textbook_Herbology_101, not textbook_herbology_101
