Glossary

From Information about Isaak, Brock University's Sakai-Based LMS

Jump to: navigation, search

The Glossary tool provides definitions for row and column names in matrices. When participants move the mouse over a row or column name that matches a term in the Glossary, a short description or definition is displayed. When participants click the name, a separate window opens containing a long description and/or other related information. Site coordinators often use the long description to provide detailed information on objectives, outcomes, or standards represented by each row in the matrix.

[edit] Key concepts

Term: The word or phrase to be described. The term must be identical to the corresponding row or column name in order for the Glossary entry to work.

Short description: The description that displays when a user mouses over a column or row name with a matching Glossary entry.

Long description: The description that displays when a user clicks a column or row name with a matching Glossary entry.

[edit] Things to consider

The Glossary entry and associated descriptions for a row or column should be general enough to apply and be equally correct for all cells in that row or column.
