Printing a glossary

At the top right of the main glossary page, you'll see a little printer icon. If you click the icon, Moodle will open a new browser window and present all the words and definitions in a printer-friendly format.

To print the glossary:

  1. Click the printer icon at the top of the main glossary page.
  2. From the newly opened window, choose Print from the File menu of your browser.
  3. Once the word list has printed, close the printer-friendly format window.
