I've read through every bit of documentation I can find on short notice. They each say the same thing: your administrator can set the glossary for all courses. These entries never say how to do that.
I got handed this project late yesterday and have a meeting at 9 A.M U.S. Eastern time. I didn't figure it would be this hard or I would have asked last night.
I've been on the Moodle Demonstration site trying to find the setting.
I am not the administrator for the site. I find out how to do something and provide instructions.
If someone can help me I promise I will mail them a chocolate cookie.
of course I´m intersted in the cookie (as long as it´s no virtual one ), but my impression is that we are far away from it. My question in this forum http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=91487 refers to this.
It would be helpful to have secundary glossaries with the "real" data, and having main or global glossaries referring to the content of them. What we then need is kind of category showing where the glossary entry resides, or whom to contact in case of questions (teacher of the respective course?). At least it should be possible to aggregate secundary glossaries to a main glossary withou copying data.
The more I think about the glossaries, the less I see a difference between main and secundary glossaries...
Good luck with the cookie
