Is anyone familiar with a module or integrated functionality to add glossary definitions to certain terms within the lessons? I am thinking of a small pop-up that shows up when you hover over a word. Thanks for any suggestions!
Teaching with Moodle
embedded "mouse over" glossary definitions
Hi, Mary. I am using Moodle Cloud, and I have set up the autolink feature in a Glossary, but it doesn't work. I have tried looking at a way to enable autolinks (filters) in the site administration, and everything seems to be OK, but when I go to the course, it still doesn't work. I have done this procedure in other Moodle sites and have never come up with any issues whatsoever. Am I doing something wrong? Or am I missing something?
P.D. When I go to "filters" under the cog menu in the course, I see the option "link activity names", but not "link glossary entries" as it shows in the video that you suggested. I think there might be something that I need to check at the site-level.
Thank you very much for your help,
Have you checked whether the filter Glossary auto-linking is enabled? If you have site admin rights, go to Site administration > Plugins > Filters > Manage filters and look for the 'Glossary auto-linking'
My bet is, that the filter you're looking for is set to Off. Toggling the settings immediately makes the filter available, so no Saving settings is necessary.
You may want to refresh the course page you're working on, to see the results.
