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.

Overview of the Glossary activity

How is it set up?

  • In a course, with the editing turned on, choose 'Glossary' from the activity chooser.
  • Give it a name and, if required, a description.
  • Expand the other settings to select

Glossary can be used in many ways. The entries can be searched or browsed in different formats. A glossary can be a collaborative activity or be restricted to entries made by the teacher. Entries can be put in categories. The auto-linking feature will highlight any word in the course which is located in the glossary.
