I think this is still evolving, but on the simplest level, it means inserting the course name into a URL with the “course:” namespace... An example:
For ETEC540, we are going one level of detail deeper:
http://wiki.ubc.ca/Course:ETEC540/2009WT1 (example: http://wiki.ubc.ca/Course:ETEC540/2009WT1/Orality_and_Literacy)
That 2009WT1 is supposed to stand for winter term 1 – Novak, is that right?
Why do this? Among other things, it will allow for creating dynamic indexes of all pages created for the course (and “breadcrumbs” for navigation and organization) - you can see the current list are at the bottom.
Here is how the Faculty eLearning Support Guide looks in wiki (just a test page, full version soon): http://wiki.ubc.ca/Documentation:Faculty_Resource_Guide/Resources
This plays really well with Wiki Book PDF extension, our Faculty resource guide (ar any other set of manuals guides or general documentation) could look like this once we finish the plug in: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/European_History
