Filters can transform simple text into different often more complex forms.  The potential for a filter is set at the site level and then it can be applied or removed as needed in site on a context level.  HTML hyperlinking, or a text link that automatically calls up a sound player are examples of text filters.

There are many applications for filters. You could turn on the LaTeX filter just for courses in the Maths and Physics categories so users could create math formula notations with text based short cuts. Here the LaTeX filter would need to be enabled for the site and you would need permission in the context of those course categories to edit the filter settings. A teacher could turn off glossary linking in a course exam, or in the entire course.
