Use of angle brackets in URLs.
 
I have reflected on this post and have added the angle brackets back to the Ebook wizard.
There has been an Internet-tradition of quoting URLs in angle brackets e.g. <URL> and this convention is generally accepted. While this is changing, I have decided to retain angle brackets in the wizards on this site. Thanks again for the Email.

Good evening.

Sorry I cannot help with the F grade. Suggest you look at your course regulations and see if you might have grounds for an appeal. But see below. If a Wikipedia source is critical to your thesis then good luck with your appeal!

Some teachers/academics believe that Wikipedia is not a reliable information source and may 'force' their values on others particularly students resulting in low or fail marks being given to work supported by citations from this source.

I know of situations where some academics have attempted to block web access to Wilkipedia.

I do not have time to fully explain why these strong feelings exist but this is well documented.

Hence students must use Wikipedia with caution and under no circumstances should it be the only citation used to justify an argument, stance or view. It is not reliable enough to be used as the only source.

However Wikipedia does have strengths and its open source nature means that it is freely available to users.

Course Notes from an independent training organisation. Assuming that these are in a booklet, I recommend that you treat the notes as though they have been taken from a book or journal. If lecture notes refer to them in a similar way to traditional student notes but refer to the training organisation as the educational institution.

These have been noted. Hopefully the above hints will help.
