Lesson Planner

March 8, 2023: Ellii's new Lesson Planner is designed as a kanban board with three lanes: PreppingTeaching, and Taught. First, create a new class. Then add lessons or resources to the Lesson Planner for that class. Drag Ellii content across any lane to effortlessly prepare for a class ahead, instantly assign lessons to your students, and see what each class has been working on recently. There is also a folder for Saved and Recommended within each class's Lesson Planner so you can plan further ahead. Learn more and watch the video tutorial here. 

Ellii's Lesson Planner

Note: Classes created before March 7, 2023, do not have a Lesson Planner and will need to be re-created in order to use this feature. When creating a new class, your settings will default to this new style. However, you can unselect this default to create a new class in our legacy style if you prefer.
