Published vs Work In Progress

Work In Progress (or WIP for short) content is any lesson or course that you are still editing.

Published content means that content has been compiled into a single package and can be downloaded for distribution to learners.

Once a lesson or template has been published, it will disappear from your Work-in-Progress list.  This is normal.  Publishing will update your Published content with a new version.  To read more about versions and reverting to a previous version, go to the page on versions.

You can still re-open the lesson by going to the published lesson and clicking "Open".  If you do so, a new Work-in-Progress version will be created.  Your published version will remain in your Published Content folder regardless of whether or not a Work-in-Progress version exists.
