If you place your glossary interaction on a slide, say at the end of the presentation, then you can certainly place a hyperlink to the glossary from each slide, either by writing a link on each individual slide to the glossary, or adding a link to the masterslide. There is no "previous page" function however, so the user will have to know where they were in the course to come back.

There are other solutions with glossaries that might help you as explained in this excellent article by Tom.

5 Easy Ways to Add a Glossary to Your E-Learning Course

Just would like to share a tip. 

File exploring various options and Articulate forums, just found out a workaround to launch a glossary window on click of hyperlinked glossary terms.

Publish the glossary that you created using the engage interaction Glossary. Ensure that the output is for Web. The published folder contains html, swf, and other supporting files. For example, interaction.html

In your Articulate Presenter/PowerPoint file, right click the term for which you want to add hyperlink. Click Hyperlink…

In the Link to section, click Existing File or Web Page.

In the Address field, type presentation_content/external_files/interaction.html

This is the relevant path from where you want Articulate to fetch the glossary file.

Note: make sure that the file name mentioned at the end of the path is appropriate. If your published glossary engage file name is interaction.html, your path would be: presentation_content/external_files/interaction.html

Publish the course for LMS or Web using Articulate.

After you publish the course, open the output folder.

Open the presentation_content folder. Inside the folder named external_files, paste the published glossary folder containing html, swf, and other supporting files.

When you run the presentation.html file or presentation_html5.html file, the Glossary window will be launched on lcik of the hyperlimked terms.  

You can also add the Glossary in the attachments section or in the player.

Tom has explained very well in his blog about various methods of adding a glossary to the elearning course. http://blogs.articulate.com/rapid-elearning/5-easy-ways-to-add-a-glossary-to-your-e-learning-course/?_ga=1.122772299.1513150801.1423748418#comments

The information mentioned in the Tom’s 4th point - Hyperlink to an Attached Glossary, has really inspired me to come up with the above solution. Don’t know if someone has already tried this. 

Note: I am using Articulate Studio 13 and PowerPoint 2013.

Publish the glossary that you created using the engage interaction - Glossary. Ensure that the output is for Web, so the published folder contains html, swf, and other supporting files. For example, interaction.html

In your Articulate Presenter/PowerPoint file, right click the term for which you want to add hyperlink. Click Hyperlink…

In the Link to section, click Existing File or Web Page.

In the Address field, type presentation_content/external_files/interaction.html

This is the relevant path from where you want Articulate to fetch the glossary file.

Note: Make sure that the file name mentioned at the end of the path is appropriate. If your published glossary engage file name is interaction.html, your path would be: presentation_content/external_files/interaction.html.
Or, if your published glossary engage file name is test.html, the path that you will enter will be: presentation_content/external_files/test.html.

Publish the course for LMS or Web using Articulate.

After you publish the course, open the output folder.

Open the presentation_content folder. Inside the folder named external_files, paste the files that are present in the published glossary folder containing html, swf, and other supporting files.

When you run the presentation.html file or presentation_html5.html file, the Glossary window will be launched on click of the hyperlinked terms / when you click the hyperlinked terms.

You can also add the Glossary in the attachments section or in the player.

Any chance that one day we may be able to bold text within the glossary definition or add an active hyperlink, so I don't have to create a slide for my glossary.  I like the one that comes with the player but this would be a great feature.  I was just searching to see if I was able to do it...but looks like not quite.  Leslie, do you know if this has been submitted as a feature request, I don't want to duplicate efforts .:)
