Hello is there a dictionary to understand what all the short terms are when we are implementing. I am finding this difficult and I really do not truly understand what I even want to ask.
When looking at terms, it's about the window of time in which different user roles can access the courses. These lessons should help you get started.
How do I use the Terms page in an account?
How do I add a new term in an account?
What should I do at the beginning and end of each term as an admin?
If you have any follow-up questions, please reply! The Community will do its best to get you the resources and help you need.
After rereading your question -- do you want to learn about TERMS (quarter, trimester, semester) or a list of different words that are used for Canvas features?
Here's a handy Glossary if needed Canvas Glossary
