What is the Glossary Activity in Moodle?
 Glossaries can be used in Moodle by creating a table to define specific words used in your course. It’s a way toshare a resource with your students. Teachers can edit what is called a main glossary and secondary glossariesmay be configured to allow student entries and comments.
Creating a Glossary
In your Moodle course you can have one main glossary, but you can also add as many secondary glossaries asyou please. You can export entries from any secondary glossary into the main glossary. You can create the linkanywhere you’d like within your course section.

“Turn editing on…”
