Attempting to edit a course that is currently being worked on by another author will result in a warning message explaining the course is not available for editing. The Publish button on the Course Details page will be disabled while the course is being edited by another author. The course editor lockout prevents content changes from being lost or overwritten while more than one person is attempting to edit the course. The course will unlock either when the course editor is closed by the author or 15 minutes after the author’s last edit was made.

View Course Content

Your course is created by adding different types of content. In a slide, you are able to add images, videos, Studio media, and embed content. In the content sidebar [1], you can view a thumbnail of all content you create in your course. As you add additional content, you can use a scrollbar to view all thumbnails.

When you select a slide or quiz, the content appears in the main window of your browser [2]. As you create course content, Bridge automatically saves your work [3].
