This change is something that has been suggested/requested many times so we're very happy to introduce you to the new lesson editor on CourseCraft. We've been thinking that our editor was lacking a bit of pizazz and decided it was time for a major overhaul. Creating your lessons just got easier and more fun! We've designed a block-style editor to let you add tons of different sections to your lesson, rearrange them with the click of a button and see all your images and videos without previewing. You'll also notice that one of the blocks is a rich text editor. That means you can play with and style your text like never before!

Here's a quick little video I made as an introduction to the new editor:

The course description page got some fancy new additions too. Now it's simple to create a compelling course description that sells your course. Since I believe an amazing description is so important, I'll be dedicating a whole post to this very soon. In the mean time, play around with the new sections and check out the help doc.

Did you like things better before? No worries, just add a markdown block to your lesson and continue writing your lessons in markdown. As usual, you'll still be able to embed videos, quizzes and livestreams in a markdown block.

But wait, there's more!

As if that wasn't enough, we also added an auto-save feature! Since you spend so much time making amazing content for your e-course, you shouldn't have to live in fear of losing anything. Auto-save will kick in every 2 minutes to save your work. If you want to disable it, just click on the little auto-save icon at the top left of the editor.

Feedback is always encouraged.

As always, we want you to feel comfortable contacting us if you have any problems. We'll try to respond to your email immediately, but certainly no later than 24 hours. If you need help, something isn't working correctly, or you just have a suggestion, definitely drop us a line at
