Creating content on Education Perfect
On EP, teachers can create a wide variety of resources using our powerful content authoring tool. Let’s explore!

Navigating to the Content Library
To access the Content Library, you’ll first need to log in to your teacher account and navigate to the Content tab. Here, toggle to Edit mode.
Ensure that the dropdown at the top is set to your desired subject. You’ll see an option Create new across the top which will access the drop-down menu with options for creating content. Click any option to start creating.
Want to customise existing content? Head over to our guide.
Types of Content
Here’s a breakdown of the different types of content you can create on EP:
|Content type||Description|| Click to view our related resources
|Smart Lessons|| Smart Lessons are incredibly versatile and can contain different media and question styles.
They’re handy for exploring new, detailed topics in the classroom, allow for flexibility and are great to use for in-class tasks or assigning homework.
Peer Review is also available!
|Pre-Built Exams|| A range of assessment options are available, with different media and question types. Reporting and recommended task options are also included.
Use this option for quizzes, tests, and setting formal exams.
For Assessments, auto-marking is done automatically where possible, but you're still given the option of overriding these marks.
|Translation (Vocabulary) List|| Translation Lists help students revise their vocabulary.
They contain five learning modes; for example in Italian:
|Fact List||Fact Lists test technical vocabulary. You can type out your own information or import it from another list or spreadsheet.|
|Spelling List||Spelling Lists test spelling and are exclusive to non-language subjects. Each word is paired with a sentence to give more context. You can type your own set of spelling words or import them from another list or spreadsheet.|
Types of Components and Questions
While list-type content is entirely auto-marked and is uniform in style; Smart Lessons and Assessments have a variety of question types available that are either auto-marked or manually marked.
Check out the detailed breakdown below, and click the headers to visit our detailed component setup guides.
(also called Quiz or Short Answer in EP)
||A question is presented and the student must click the correct answer.|
||A passage of text with one or more words omitted from it is displayed, along with a number of possible answers which need to be dragged into the correct space.|
| Fill-in-the-Gaps (Textbox)
||A passage of text with one or more words omitted from it are displayed. Students must then type the correct word in each space.|
||Different sections within a passage are highlighted which students are to select based on a question prompt.|
||Questions are posed on sections of a passage of text. Students are required to select an answer from a list (similar to multi-choice questions).|
This component prompts students to select their answer from a set of dropdown options. This is available as part of the Text component.
The Dropdown component is found under the Information & Media section, but can still be used as an answerable question! See more information here.
| Manually marked
(also called Extended Response, or Long Answer in EP)
||Students are asked to write one or more sentences based on a prompt.|
| Audio Recorder
|| Students are asked to record a verbal answer to a question.
These are particularly useful for learning and testing pronunciation.
|| Students are asked to draw something based on a prompt.
Students can also be asked to label an image.
| Working Formula questions
(Mostly used for Math and Science)
|Students are required to complete an equation and show their work.|
|File Uploader||Students can upload a range of file types such as documents, images, videos or audio files as a response to a question.|
Information & Media
|Text|| A basic text box component.
Can be used for titles, or anything text related!
| Image, Video, Audio, PDF
||These components allow you to upload your own media, or choose from our existing Media Gallery.|
|Annotated Text||Use this to introduce your students to a passage of text, and highlight specific parts.|

|YouTube||Paste a YouTube link into this component to include a video in your slide.|
Editing existing content
Customising existing content can be a great starting point, especially if you just want to make small tweaks!
Any content that you already have access to can be copied and edited - including Official EP content. Find out how to do this here.
Finding and sharing custom content
Custom-built content can be shared with teachers at your school, as well as publicly. You can use the Content Library to find content that other teachers have shared as well. Find out how you can do this in our guide.
Check out our copyright guidelines here.
Once you are happy with the resource(s) you have created, you can assign them to your students! Check out our guides for more information:
- Assigning a Task
- Assigning a Pre-Built Assessment

Retrieving deleted work
Wanting to retrieve a Task, Assessment, or custom-built content that you or someone else deleted? Not to worry - we can bring it back for you!
Contact our support team, and include the following to the best of your ability:
- The name of the Task or Assessment.
- The subject of the Task or Assessment.
- The approximate date or time that it was deleted.
- The name of the folder that the content was within (if applicable).
Our team will investigate and confirm this with you.
If a Task or Assessment assigned to students has been deleted, any data for this piece of work will be removed from student reporting in the Insights tab. Retrieving it brings it right back.
