Content Templates

To accelerate your content production, you can use existing content you or your company has created to build libraries of pre-made materials. This can be accomplished using the platform's copying functionality.

Getting Started

Building a library of template content uses the course copying functionality. The general flow of creating a library is:
  1. 1.
    Create contents in a course in the Creator and mark them as published.
  2. 2.
    Publish the course to the Catalog.
  3. 3.
    Enable course copying in the settings on your organization's page so other members of your organization can copy the course to their own Creator.

Creating Content Templates

To create a content template, simply create a content in the Creator as you normally would inside of a course. It might be good to label the course something "Templates: Python Content" so others know it is a collection of templates.
Once you have created the content you would like to use as a template, publish it by clicking the toggle on the content from its courses page in the Creator. Then navigate to the course's page in the Catalog as an admin or manager. From the course's page, publish it. This will make it visible to all others users of your account in the Catalog.

Using Content Templates

To use a content template, navigate to the course's page from the Catalog. From there, you can see a list of all of the contents available and even try them as a user to sample them, if you would like.
When you are ready, click the Copy Course to Creator button on the right hand side of the course's page in the Catalog. This will start copying the content into a new course in the Creator for you. Once you navigate to this course in the Creator, you can edit the copied contents directly or create additional copies of them to edit.
If there are many contents in a course, it may take a moment to finish copying.
