External glossary for multiple projects

Aug 01, 2013

I'm working on a series of modules and I'm wondering if there's a way to create one external glossary that each of these modules can pull from. I know I can create a Storyline template with a glossary already in it and then create each subsequent module from that template so the glossary would be shared. But that's not what I'm looking for here. I'm looking for a centralized glossary that multiple modules can pull terms from and that can be updated as necessary with limited impact. Is this possible with Storyline?

If I understand what you're trying to do this should be fairly straightforward.

  1. Create your glossary (Engage works well here if you have it).
  2. Publish your glossary to a web location that is accessible to your audience
  3. Copy the URL of your glossary.
  4. Insert it into your courses as either a web object on a slide or as a resource in the player. Either way allows you to not only share the glossary among multiple project but also to make updates/additions to the single glossary and have those changes flow through to all of your already published Storyline files.
