Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Engaging students with a glossary, part of Moodle 2.8 Essential Training.
- If you teach a course that has a lot of vocabulary…or introductory concepts,…think about creating a glossary.…Even better, think about having students create a glossary…as a way to teach each other.…Moodle's glossary tool gives you quite a few options,…including allowing comments and ratings on glossary entries.…Want to set up a glossary?…I do.…First, I'll turn Turn editing on…with the button in the top right corner.…Next, I'll scroll to an appropriate section.…I'm gonna use the course information section,…because my glossary is going to last for the entire class.…
I'll click the Add an activity or resource link…at the bottom right corner of that section.…I'll choose Glossary from the Activities' list…and then the Add button at the bottom of the window.…On the Adding a new Glossary page…we'll start with adding a name.…I'll give it a title such as Class vocabulary.…In the Description field, enter the instructions…if students are creating the entries…as well as any details about the activity.…For example, do they need to use their own words…
