What happens when you clone a lesson?

  • The lesson will have a default title of the original lesson title with the word Copy at the end. This title can be changed by clicking on the lesson and selecting the pencil icon next to the title.

  • The clone will have identical activities (including and links or resources added) as the original.

  • Changes you make to the clone will not reflect on the original, and vice versa.
