Introducing Definition Cards
Clear up the confusion when new concepts arise in class with our latest feature release.1 min read Published: 14 Oct 2021
Ever come across a term you don’t fully understand during a lecture? Definition Cards are here to help.
How does it work?
Definition Cards enable you to quickly find and store an explanation for a new concept that arises during a class or study session. These cards generate a short overview from Wikipedia that is saved into your notes feed and helps to develop your understanding.
Whether you’re recording a class or reviewing your notes, creating a Definition Card is quick and easy!
- Click the new Definition Card icon, found next to the quick labels. Alternatively, you can also use the /define or ALT + W shortcuts.
- Enter the term you wish to find a definition for.
- Sometimes, there might be multiple pages covering the same phrase. If this happens, simply select the most relevant article from the drop down list.
- That’s all there is to it - your definition will be added to your feed!
How does this help my learning?
Definition Cards are a very helpful addition to the learning process:
- Stay engaged: Find and save additional context from within Glean, ensuring you stay focused on your notes throughout your class or study session.
- Save time: The process is quick and easy, eliminating the manual steps that would previously be required when looking up a definition.
- Supports learning: Build out detailed notes using different types of media to fully support your understanding of a subject.
