Seems like as good a place as any. I think we maybe ought to add some text encouraging folk to search rather than browsing as that may be a better strategy within a wiki and/or provide a link to an auto generated contents page (does such a thing exist?)

I think that the Categories might lead us to an automatically generated contents page ...

By 'autogenerated contents page' do you mean a page which links to all the pages that refer to a particular thing? Category can do that. I'm pretty sure we could embed a 'what links here' list within the glossary page too. So, for example if we were on the mooc entry, we'd see all the places across the wiki moocs were mentioned?

Category pages also let us see all the pages within a particular category...depending on how the category is deployed it's probably more precise, but has lower recall (will link to fewer broadly relevant pages) than the 'whatlinkshere' option...

I meant a page that lists all the pages in the wiki ...

PeterT08:04, 18 December 2012 ? Or any category page lists pages in that category, e.g. ......
