USING THE GLOSSARY. 1.
When students participate in a course by researching ideas and defining them in a common glossary, their audience expands from one person (the teacher) to a larger community (their peers). This is one of the modules that best illustrates the way that Moodle can fundamentally improve upon the experience of a traditional classroom. When students contribute to a course in a public place like the glossary, their ideas are given weight and attention and often result in a greater pride or ownership of the assignment. •Glossary items can be grouped in categories. •Participants can comment on glossary entries. •Entries can be rated using teacher‐defined scales. •Glossaries can be easily exported and imported via xml. •Student entries can be previewed by instructors before publishing. •Glossaries can be fully searched. •Glossaries can be viewed with different display formats.
