Change "notes" to "presentation materials"

The whole “notes” thing on nanohub has been a bit bizzare as you know. This catagory is used for PPT files of presentions that do not have a corresponding audio component (i.e., breeze, html5, podcast, etc.)

Also many of these PPT files are classified as “teaching materials” as they are intended to be a component that an instructor can down load and incorporate into their presentation. Dragica has provide many PPT files that fall into this case.

I suggest that we change the catagory of “notes” to “presentation materials”.

“publications” is actually used correctly, in that is is written documents. It is not the catchall that “notes” is.

    I’ll leave the actual decision up to someone else but should note what would be required to make the change:

    1. Change the resource type title via the admin interface (quick, easy).
    2. Change the main menu item for “Notes”
    3.  ? Most things should follow step 1. There may be something we’re forgetting but I can’t think of what.
