I have tried several different ways of adding or assigning a glossary to a Category and none have really worked. I want the Glossary to be available within a Category, as a main glossary, global to that Category. It is using language specific to the courses within that Category, i.e. engineering terminology that is not in common language use. For other more general, or common, terms, the site Global Glossary is located on the Front Page. I really don't want to go through importing of terms for each course via an xml document, which doesn't help when adding a new term or refining a definition in one course, as changes not appearing in all instances of the Glossary if imported initially. Any help will be greatly appreciated here.
This has been here for a week now, without reply, so I am assuming there is no answer, or at least an easy answer. I am really sure there is no barrier to changing the Glossary to work at three levels, Site, Category, Course, but there would obviously need to be some rewriting of the code, further development, refinement of the module. So a Moodle Tracker item it is.
Sorry Colin, missed this. I don’t know of a way of restricting a Glossary to category level. It can be global across the site, or restricted to individual courses, but not category. I can definitely see uses for a category Glossary though, so a tracker item would be a good idea and will get my vote when you tell us what the tracker number is
Colin - thanks for making this tracker -- this is something my teachers have been asking for, specifically the ones who utilize the glossary heavily - they hate when "Social Studies" terms show up in their "Math" courses.... it is easy to import/export between glossaries within a category, but once there are 15-20 courses in a single category, then the Glossaries just don't get consistently updated between courses because the teachers find it's difficult to have 10 uninterrupted minutes to keep all 15-20 glossaries up to date. Ha. Thanks again.
