Import A Glossary

Import glossary entries

Glossary entries can be exported and then imported into another glossary via an XML file.

Importing glossary entries

  • As an editing teacher, access your glossary
  • Go to Settings > Glossary administration > Import entries


  • Click the "Choose a file" button and browse for the exported entries XML file on your computer
  • Select the destination for the new entries: either the current glossary or a new one
  • If you want to import category information, click the checkbox.
  • Click the "Submit" button.


You'll then see a report of the entries and categories added to the glossary. If you enabled duplicate entries when you created the glossary, the import process will add all of the new definitions. Otherwise, it will not allow you to import any duplicate entries.

You will be listed as author of all the entries.
