    Should you be pedantic about the clerical errors you see in a reference book?
    I'm currently studying History in a distance learning school where the primary mode of instruction is through online delivery of academic materials called modules. My concern is that most of these modules contain minor clerical errors, which can be easily spotted and corrected with the help of other references. In one module, for example, the last name of the former U.S. senator Stephen Douglas is spelled with a letter "h". Another module claimed that "Palawan", instead of 'Palanan", was the place where the first Philippine president, Emilio Aguinaldo, was captured. The academic committee responded appropriately when I informed them about these mistakes. But should I continue to report the minor clerical errors I might encounter in the future or should I just correct the errors myself?

    Will the correction become universal for other students? Or just in your module?

    Sounds like this distance-learning program needs some improvement before they teach History....
