Please Note: Only members of the teaching team (Instructor, TA and Preceptor roles) are able to create Glossary Terms. If you want students to be able to contribute terms to the Glossary they will need to create a CSV file with the terms and definitions and provide that file to a member of the teaching team so that the file can be imported to the Glossary. For more information about importing Glossary terms, click the Import Glossary Terms link above.
