Import Glossary Terms 

You can create all of the glossary words for your course on your computer and import them into TCU Online all at once.

To import multiple glossary terms, you must supply a CSV (comma separated values) file containing your glossary information. Each field in this file should be separated by a comma and each row by a line break. The first field in the first row must contain the text ‘Term’ and the second field must contain the text ‘Definition’. All subsequent rows will contain the actual terms and definitions that you want to import. A sample CSV file is available on the Import Terms page.

  1. On the nav bar, click the More Tools menu, then select Glossary.
