Inside scoop on curriculum, teaching and product improvements
7-minute lesson planning

I am excited to share some new features which will allow you to drastically reduce the amount of time you spend in planning your lessons (we think its going to come down to 7 minutes per plan – do correct us if we are wrong). This comes with the ability to not just place these template-based lessons in folders, as was always possible before, but also inside Units, a new concept we are releasing with this planning update. Here is what it looks like:

This is a very early version of these features, and we are looking to constantly improve this, so if you have any feedback or suggestions (based on the video or after you try it out), drop me an email at There is a lot of amazing things that can be done at this point with these features to take them to the next level, and your advice/thoughts will actually be the most consequential in the process.
