How to add lessons within lessons (lessonception!)

Adding a Sublesson to a Lesson within your course is really easy! Once you have at least one main lesson in your course the โ€œ+ Add Sublessonโ€ link will appear below the โ€œ+ Add Lessonโ€ link in the sidebar of our course editor.

Sublessons are managed and edited in the same way you already manage lessons. You will edit, sort, and delete using the same methods you already know.

๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ’ป Sublessons are displayed differently depending on which Course Template (Minimal or Sidebar) you are using


For our default course template (Minimal), Sublessons are displayed on the Overview page of your course via clicking the second (Sublessons) button:

And when you're viewing a Lesson, the Sublessons are shown in a box in the righthand column (under Lesson Resources):

For the Sidebar Template when you're on the Overview page, Sublessons are shown in the left sidebar nested underneath their parent Lesson.

And when you're inside a Lesson using the Sidebar Template, the Sublessons are displayed with an accordion-style view where they can be opened and closed directly within the parent Lesson (they can also be clicked in the sidebar to be shown in full by themselves).

๐Ÿš› How to sort Sublessons (simple drag and drop!)

You can quickly and easily move one Sublesson to another parent Lesson simply by dragging and dropping it from the left sidebar while editing your course. It really is that easy!

(No matter which Course Template you use, sidebar sorting works the same in both Templates ๐Ÿ‘).

If you're looking for a bit more room to sort your Lessons/Sublessons or you just have a lot more lessons, click into the Lesson Drip Options page in the editor sidebar and you can also drag and drop lessons here!

๐Ÿ“ Sublesson Actions and how to Rename Sublessons in the sidebar editor

After creating a new Sublesson, you can always look to the Actions menu (top right) for specific actions related to that Sublesson.

These actions include:

  • Copy Lesson URL (copying the specific Sublesson URL)

  • Edit Lesson Name/URL (edit the name you see in the left sidebar or edit the URL)

  • Edit Lesson Drip Schedule (if you're using lesson locking)

  • Duplicate Lesson (make an exact copy of this Sublesson)

  • Delete Lesson (delete this Sublesson for-ev-er)

And just to highlight it further, if you're looking to change the name of your Sublesson (or Lesson) in the left sidebar of the Teachery editor, you change that text in Actions > Edit Lesson Name/URL:
