Add teaching notes to Lessons

The Teaching note widget adds a text block which is visible to teachers and hidden from students.


The Teaching note widget works exactly like the Text widget, except that teaching notes are only visible to teachers and only in Prepare mode

Teaching notes can be used in myriad ways to enhance a Lesson, including:

  • Provide extra guidance when leading an activity;
  • Make notes to co-teachers or colleagues when sharing the Lesson;
  • Add external links to resources, model answers, or extra supplies.



Notes are highlighted with a green outline and an off-white background to differentiate them from the rest of the Lesson. They disappear completely in Student view

The text formatting toolbox in the Teaching notes widget is identical to the Text widget. Learn how to use all of the tools available here.
