If the lesson you wish to edit is an official Education Perfect list, you will be prompted to make a copy of the lesson and to choose where you would like that copy to be saved. 

Saving the lesson in 'My Content' will mean that the lesson will only be visible for you. This is handy if you would like to take your time to make improvements and do not want it to be seen until it is fully ready. 

If you would like the lesson to be visible for other teachers, you can assign it to an existing folder or create a new folder in your My School's Content section. For more information about our different workspaces, you can read through our guide.
