Blackboard now offers a Glossary tool that provides a searchable glossary of terms to offer students. This feature can accept an uploaded Excel document of terms and definitions or you can type them in one at a time as you gather them for your course. The tool is located in the Control Panel, in the Course Tools area. To create a Glossary, follow these steps:
In the Control Panel , click on Glossary Manager . You will be presented with three options: Add Term, Upload Glossary, Download Glossary . To enter one term at a time, choose Add Term . To upload an entire list of terms and definitions, click on Upload Glossary .
If you clicked Add Term - a text box will appear for you to enter the term and its definition. Click Submit when completed to enter your term into the Glossary.
Finally, a receipt screen will appear, displaying the information you entered. You may click on Add Another Term to continue adding terms or click OK to finish.
The students access this tool under Student Tools. A Glossary link can also be created in your Course Menu bar.
