I originally set this page up as a glossary item but Dsimsek has done a great job on extending it with more very useful content. However, it is now too big (imho) as a glossary page so when it gets transcluded onto the definition of terms page, it swamps it. I think we need a strategy for identifying what is a glossary page and what is a main page ...
My suggestion, thinking aloud so it may not work, is that where we have a term like MOOC / Massively Open Online Course then the definition page shoud be called the full expanded name (eg Massively Open Online Course) and any fuller description should go on a page called by the abbreviation (eg MOOC). The definition could/should be transcluded (embedded) within the fuller description (eg Massively Open Online Course would be transcluded within MOOC).
Will that work?
