It seems that the majority of our faculty use the Glossary module as a resource and not an activity. They take the time to build a glossary, and often use link the crossword from the Games module to the glossary.
When it comes time to requesting a copy of the course, we go ahead and make it for them (not knowing it contains a glossary) and then hear back from them later that their glossary is empty and have to go through the hassle of using Sharing Cart, or redoing the course copy with enrolled users and then resetting the new copy. I suppose would could make our default workflow to copy with enrolled users and then reset the copy, but that's definitely extra work when dealing with hundreds of shells.
I realize that the data isn't copied because it's an activity and therefore tied to users. But, it would be nice if maybe there were a Glossary activity and a Glossary resource so that the resource could just be copied normally and remain intact like any other resource.
I'm wondering what others' experiences, opinions, and tips are on this.
