Glossaries are a common interaction in e-learning courses. Course designers use glossary interactions to define key terms, explain industry-specific jargon, and provide context and understanding of cultural phrases.
By including a glossary in your e-learning course, you're providing learners with a valuable tool that they can use to enhance their understanding of the material. Not only does this help learners to better engage with the content, but it also allows them to interact with the course on a more meaningful level.
If you're working in Storyline 360, you can easily add a glossary using the quick-and-easy glossary import/export feature. But you're not limited to the defaults. When you need your glossary to align visually with the rest of your course, you'll need to build it from the ground up. And that's what this week's challenge is all about!

This week, your challenge is to create a glossary interaction to show how they can be used in e-learning.
