Articulate Presenter 360 lets you add a glossary of terms and definitions to your course for quick reference.

In order for the Glossary tab to show in your course, it needs to be enabled in your player. Learn more about choosing your player features.

Working with the Glossary

To work with the glossary, go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Player.

When the Player Properties window appears, click Glossary on the ribbon.

Adding Terms and Definitions to Your Glossary

  1. Click the Add button (looks like a blank piece of paper) at the bottom of the window.
  2. When the Glossary Term window appears, enter a term and its definition in the fields provided.
  3. Click Save.

Tip: As you add glossary terms, Presenter automatically alphabetizes them for you.

Editing and Deleting Glossary Terms

Use the buttons at the bottom of the glossary window to edit and delete glossary terms.

Reusing a Glossary in Other Projects

When you add a glossary to a course, it gets saved in the project, not in the player. As a result, saving your player and applying it to another project doesn't carry over your glossary.

The easiest way to reuse a glossary in another course is to make a copy of the entire course, then edit it as necessary. Here's how:

  1. First, create an Articulate Package of your presentation. An Articulate Package is a special zip file that contains all the resources for a course, including the PowerPoint file, the Articulate file, quiz files, and interaction files.
  2. When you're ready to begin a new presentation, extract the Articulate Package (zip file) on your local hard drive.
  3. Rename the PowerPoint file and the corresponding Articulate file for your new project. Make sure they have the same file name; they must match.
  4. Open the PowerPoint presentation and edit it as needed to complete the new course.

If you later add, delete, or change any of the terms in your glossary, those changes won't carry over to other projects that use the same glossary. You'll need to make the same changes in each project separately.

Showing or Hiding the Glossary Tab on a Slide-by-Slide Basis

By default, built-in player tabs, such as the Glossary tab, display for all slides in a course, but you can hide them for some slides. See this user guide for details.

Changing the Name of the Glossary Tab

Want to change the title of the Glossary tab? Just edit the name in your player text labels. If you need help editing text labels, see this user guide.
