I think both are technically correct in every day use.

From the video you provided (I only listened briefly) it sounds like he is listing a course names and therefore he is correct to use the full name of the course.

It includes: How to collect your data; How to label your data; ..

  • Thanks for your answer. And which one is easier to understand? Considering they are in a classroom and there is no punctuation to help to get lecturer's point.
