Hi Amanda,

There's no specific format - use whatever works best for you.

I always do something like "DEMO - xxxxx" for screencams, and if I am creating voiceover for a slide with layers I use "Description - BASE LAYER", or "Description - GAME LAYER" and so on.

I tend to try and avoid using "Slide x" as they tend to change and get out of synch.

Hope this starts your thinking process around this.

It all really depends on how your system works. I'm not talking about your computer system, but your organizational system. Some people will chunk everything into one file, others might put the assets into categories such as video, graphics, audio. Find something that works for you.  

We do have a specific way of naming our files for our courses,  Lets say we have a course on XYZ software and it has 3 lessons in it; Intro, Create New XYZ file, Saving XYZ File.  We will name our files in the following format.

XYZSoftware_Lesson1_Intro.story

XYZSoftware_Lesson2_CreateNewFile.cptx

XYZSoftware_Lesson3_SaveFile.cptx

This way we know what course it belongs to, what lesson it is, and what the lesson name is.  We also don't use spaces between words since it tends to mess up when we link the courses in our network.

Bruce is right! No specific format, but it would be better if you follow something like "Customer's Feedback_001", "Employee's Working Styles-001" and so on. Try to put keywords related to topic so that it helps you later.
