Blackboard Learn features a Glossary, where you can add terms and definitions pertinent to your course. The Glossary can be found in the Course Tools on your course site; you may need to make it available in the Tool Availability menu first. 

Step-by-step guide

  1. In the Control Panel, click the left arrow to expand the Course Tools list, and then click Glossary.

  2. Click Create Term.

  3. In the Term box, type the new term.

  4. In the Definition box, type a definition for the term.
  5. When you are finished, click Submit.

To upload an existing glossary

You also have the option of uploading an existing Glossary to your course site. You will need to build the glossary in Excel and save as an .xls or .csv file.

  2. Under Locate Upload File, click Browse to search for the file you wish to upload.
  3. When you locate the file, click Open to add it to Blackboard.
  4. Under Save Current Terms, select whether you would like to add the new glossary to an existing glossary or if you would like the new glossary to replace the older version.
  5. When you are finished, click Submit.
