Author Lesson Locking

Prevent authors from overriding each other's work in the authoring tool by locking lessons, allowing only one author to access the lesson editor at one time.

To see how to lock a lesson for your learners, visit this guide.

How does it work? 

  • Only one author is able to access the lesson editor at one time.
  • Course and lesson pages are still accessible while another author is in the lesson editor.

When a lesson is locked 


Buttons to access lesson editor are disabled.


Admins are able to remove a lock at any time. Click "Edit this lesson anyway" to proceed.

The lesson automatically unlocks after 5 minutes of no activity on the page.
