This was begun as a list of ideas from a Moodle.org chat on creative ideas for using the Moodle Glossary module and was set up by Paula Clough.

Database of Articles

 By Tina Rowe

I have not used the glossary as a glossary, but to build a database of articles which includes all of the information that you might get about an article, email, abstract etc.

I like the fact that the item can then be commented on and given keywords. It also builds a useful resource which, as has been made clear in earlier posts, exported.

Debate or Public Speaking

In a similar style to this. For helping students train for debating and public speaking.

Put a list of topics into a glossary and set's up the random glossary entry block. A laptop is set up at the front of the classroom so that the person at the front can see it. Students take it in turns to come up to the front, refresh the page and speak for 1 minute on that topic off the top of their head.

After the class make the glossary open for all to see and their homework is to pick another topic than the one they spoke on and write another 1 min speech for next week.
