Odigia courses have interactive glossaries.
You may click on the Glossary icon from anywhere inside your course. To see ALL of the glossary terms within the course, click on the Glossary icon when looking at the whole Course Outline.
You may filter terms alphabetically by clicking the letter of your choice.
Note: You may choose to have all terms in the glossary become highlighted within the text. Just click the on/off button.
Once you turn on Highlight Glossary Terms in the Content, these terms within the text will become clickable.
In the text above, once you click on "comet" or "planet" you will see the definition found in the glossary in a pop-out window.
Note: Individual users, including students, may choose to turn the highlighted glossary terms on or off within their own course view.
When you click inside an individual section of the textbook, you may click on the Glossary icon to see the terms associated with that section of the textbook. Below is an example:
Certain users have the ability to add or delete terms within the glossary. Contact an Odigia representative if you want to edit the glossary.
First, make sure to be in edit mode (Click on Edit Course Content from the homepage or from the hamburger drop-down.)
Click on the Glossary tab.
You may click Import Terms to add new words from a CSV file with any number of new terms to be added to the glossary. The CSV file needs to be in the following format:
Note: The cells below Case Sensitive and Synonym 1-3 are all optional and may be left blank.
You may also click Add New Term to add one term at a time. When you select this option, you will see the form below that requests the new term, definition, and optional synonyms. Be sure to click the box on the bottom of the form to indicate that the term is case sensitive.
You may edit terms and definitions or delete them altogether. Use the edit and delete icons on the right side of the term.
