Teaching notes in folder overview

Each folder in a subject can contain lessons, a student overview, and teaching notes which are hidden from students.

The Teaching note box within each folder is a great place to describe the folder's contents on a more in-depth level than what the students need. It is located below the folder's lessons, marked with a grey background.

Because it is hidden from students, teachers can use this space to discuss teaching strategies, link to extra resources, and include other helpful tips such as when the folder's contents were last updated or modified. This is especially useful when sharing resources with colleagues.


Click on the folder's Edit button and then click into the Teaching notes box. Rich text tools will appear above the box to assist in formatting and styling the text (adding colours, links, emphasis, etc).


In the above example, the Stile content team has used the Teaching notes to include:

  • Prerequisite recommendations;
  • A link to the unit highlights video;
  • Links describing various curriculum fulfillments;
  • Links to model answer PDFs;
  • The unit's version number.
