This refers to Moodle 3.11 from August 2022 onwards  

Similar to a database activity, the Glossary is a collection of knowledge, in most cases an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions).  You can create entries and your tutor can respond.

How to Contribute to a Glossary

Once you’re in the Glossary page (the example is ‘Frequently Asked Questions about Moodle’), you should see guidance on how to use the Glossary and you may see previous entries from the tutor and/or other students.  There will also be tabs to help navigate and search for entries.

  1. To initiate a contribution, click ‘Add a new entry’ button at the top of the page.

2. An editing page will appear and this is where you can make your contribution. Once completed, click ‘Save changes’ at the bottom of the page.

Tip:  The editing page has a similar look for all Glossaries created.  The "Categories" box is an additional organisation tool has been created for you to aid navigation. When making a contribution, be sure to pick a category from this box so that users can find it quickly using the 'Browse by category' tab.
