What is the Glossary activity?

The Glossay activity allows participants to create and maintain a list of definitions, like a dictionary. While it can be set up and used only by the teacher, its main function is as a collaborative exercise. The Glossary auto-linking filter

will highlight any word in the course which is located in the Glossary.


Overview of the Glossary activity

How is it set up?

  1. In a course, with the editing turned on, choose 'Glossary' from the activity chooser.
  2. Give it a name and, if required, a description.
  3. Expand the other settings to sections to define the settings you want, in particular the Entries section.
  4. Click Save and display
  5. Optionally, click the Add a new entry button so students see at least one example. 'Concept' is the word or phrase you are defining and 'Definition' is where you explain it.
