Maximize Moodle with Glossary

Student writing on some paper

The Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies (CTET) is pleased to announce that we will be featuring Moodle’s Glossary tool as part of the Moodle to the Max Project in December and January. Moodle Glossary can be used to facilitate active learning activities that enable students to collaboratively build knowledge by co-creating searchable collections that foster meaningful learning. Think of Glossary as a tool to build collections—using it to build a glossary is only one of its many uses.

Glossary is a versatile and powerful tool that is built into Moodle, allowing instructors and students to add, edit, or comment on collection entries. Entries may include formatted, rich content and multimedia such as text, images, audio, and video.

CTET instructional designers love Glossary because it is user friendly and enables the creation of varied types of searchable collections, such as:

  • Key terms or concepts,
  • Annotated bibliography,
  • Handy tips for teamwork,
  • Introductory videos, or
  • A collection of resources.

We invite the Royal Roads community to join us in exploring Glossary in the months of December and January:
