Learning vocabulary and keywords is an important skill in the digital age, as a strong vocabulary is needed to do quality research. The glossary activity on the Moodle platform allows you to create a built in glossary in which definitions to important terms related to your content can be entered. You also have the option to add media such as images or videos to support the definitions within the glossary.
