How do I rearrange content in my school's Content Library?

Organising content enables students and teachers to easily access material that is suited to their ability, and know where to look to find accelerated or catch up material.

Navigate to the Content tab, and ensure you've toggled to Edit mode.

From here, you can either add content to existing folders or, if necessary, create new folders using the Create new dropdown menu. This will enable you to rearrange content between folders. 

Creating new folders

You can only add content to the My School's Content and My Content sections.

To create a new top-level folder, select Add top-level folder. Select a name and then click Create.

'Give your new folder a name' menu

Then, to create a new sub-folder, open the Create new dropdown menu at the top, and select Folder.

Moving content between different subjects

Sometimes content is accidentally created in the incorrect subject on EP. Teachers are unable to transfer content to the correct subject themselves, but EP can assist with this.

Contact our support team and they will direct you further. Please include:

  • The name of the lesson.
  • The subject it needs to be in.

Only Smart Lessons are able to be transferred between subjects. For lists, the easiest process is to export the list and then reimport it into a newly created list in the correct subject.

There are no easy workarounds for transferring Assessments between subjects at this time.

Copying EP Content

EP content can't be reorganised, but you can always add a copy into your My School's Content section.

To make a copy of EP content, right-click and select Customise.

Renaming folders

It can be a good idea to organise folders by year level. This can make it both easier for you to find work to assign to your students and easier for your students to find work appropriate to them. 

If you're intending for your students to find work for themselves, it's important to make sure the folders you're trying to share with them aren't set to hidden from students. Hidden folders have a faded icon and students will only be able to work on their contents if it has been assigned as a task or assessment. To unhide work, right-click it and select Show to students.
