How do I recover deleted lessons or restore lessons to a previous state?

This is a feature available to Chalk Gold subscribers and teachers whose schools are subscribed to the Instruction Solution.

You will not have this option if you are a free user, and will need to reach out to or use our Live Chat for assistance in restoring lesson content.

You might find yourself in a situation where you have accidentally deleted or otherwise lost progress on a lesson. You can sometimes fix this by using the "Undo/Redo" buttons within the lesson editor, but you won't be able to do this if you have navigated away from the lesson or the changes were made in a previous day.

This article will show you how to use the Lesson History feature to recover or restore your lesson to a previous state.

Step 1:

Click the Options button in the top-right of the lesson editor, then click on Lesson History.

Step 2:

You will be taken to the Lesson History window, which displays up to the last 250 edits made to the lesson over the previous 5 days. You can click on the edits to display the lesson content on the right side of the window.

The window will look like the following:

  1. Search function for the lesson version history.
  2. Deleted lessons for the current date.
  3. Recent edits to the lesson will be listed by most to least recent.
  4. Click here to display older edits to the lesson.
  5. The lesson title and date.
  6. The lesson content will display for the version you are viewing.
  7. Click this setting to toggle highlighted changes between the lesson's current version and the edit version you are viewing.
  8. Click Restore to return the live version of the lesson to the edit version you have selected.

Step 3:

Select the version of the lesson you would like to restore, then click Restore to replace the live version of the lesson to the version you have selected.

Step 4:

Your lesson has now been restored to the previous state you have selected!
