To create a Glossary for your Blackboard course site, log into Blackboard. Select your course. In Course Management area, click on the Course Tools, then select Glossary.
The Glossary Manager can let you build the glossary one word at a time. Or, the glossary can be created and uploaded.
Locate and open Microsoft Excel. To create the glossary, put the word or term in the first cell (A1). Blackboard will not distinguish between upper and lower case terms.
The definition for the term in A1 will be written in B1. The definition length is not fixed.
As you are building your glossary in Excel, you do not need to keep the terms alphabetized. Blackboard will alphabetize the glossary for you. From the File Menu, select Save As.
Name the file. Make certain that the file type is CSV or Comma delimited. Save the file to your computer.
Now, press the Upload Glossary button.
Browse for the file you have just created.
Once you have clicked on the file, it will appear in the upload area. Press the Open button.
If this is the initial glossary, select the first radio button.
Press the Submit button to upload the glossary file.
The receipt will confirm that the process was successful.
You can see the glossary for the course. It has 2 terms, and these terms are hyperlinked.
