What is a TLO? As a Content Type


The above video describes what a TLO, Teaching and Learning Object is.  If you click on the title, it will provide more information, and allow you to discuss the video.

A TLO, Teaching and Learning Object is a Drupal Content Type we created.  It has 4 fields.

Title Field: This is linked to the node itself.  It should be kept short.

Caption Field:  This appears below the TLO, and should be a short description

Body Field:  This only appears on the TLO node, not when it is embedded.  You can make this as detailed as you want.  You can embed additional media elements into it, even other TLOs.

TLO File field:  This can be uploaded to the library, or taken from web services like You Tube


1.1 IUPAC names and related names (for organic compounds)

  • Systematic name1: A chemical name generated according to the IUPAC nomenclature, which is a systematic method of naming chemical compounds, recommended by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) (http://www.iupac.org).
  • Common or trivial name2: a non-systematic, traditional name that is widely used in industry as well as in academia.
  • Retained name: a trivial name that may be used in the IUPAC nomenclature.
  • IUPAC name: a systematic name that meets the recommended IUPAC rules.  Strictly speaking, IUPAC names include both systematic and retained names, but the terms “IUPAC name” and “systematic name” are often used interchangeably in many publications.
  • Preferred IUPAC name3 (PIN): a name that is preferred among two or more IUPAC names.  In 2013, the IUPAC revised the rules for determining preferred IUPAC names, detailed in the so-called “IUPAC blue book”.4 However, this book is not freely available due to copyright.  A previous version of the blue book is available here.
