With blocks, you can quickly create customized lessons that make your content shine. When you use the blocks shortcut bar, it’s even faster.

The blocks shortcut bar is the first thing you’ll see when you edit the content of a new blocks lesson. It contains a list of the most common blocks. To add a block to your lesson with a click, choose from text, list, image, video, process, flashcards, sorting, labeled graphic, or continue.

As you add content, the blocks shortcut bar drops below the last block in the lesson. For your existing blocks lessons, you’ll find the shortcut bar after the last block of the lesson.

If you need a block type that isn’t listed in the shortcut bar, just click All Blocks to open the blocks library sidebar.

To add blocks before or between existing blocks, click the insert block icon that appears when you mouse-over the boundary between blocks, as usual!
