How to Use the Folders Tool

ESL Library's folders tool is a fantastic option for organizing the lessons you would like to save for future use. With all the materials on ESL Library, saving lessons to your own custom folders will help you plan and save time.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Follow the steps below to locate and use the folders tool.

Log In

Step 2

When you land on our Lessons page, you can start browsing the lesson categories to find one that is suitable for your class. Click on any of the lesson categories (e.g., English at Work).

Step 3

Once you're inside a lesson category, you will notice that each lesson has a small black folder icon beneath it. Clicking the icon allows you to save that lesson to a particular folder. If the icon is already filled out in blue, then that lesson has already been saved into a folder.

Step 4

Clicking the folder icon will bring up a box with two tabs. Choose Select Folder to save the lesson to an existing folder or choose Create Folder to start a new folder. If you do not have any existing folders, the only option will be to create a new folder by entering a folder name and optional description. Click the Save to Folder(s)/Save to New Folder button to complete either action.

Step 5

If you click on a particular lesson, you can also save it to folder(s) from any lesson preview page by clicking the folder icon in the top right corner.

Step 6

After clicking the folder icon, choose the existing folder(s) you would like to save the lesson to (or create a new folder). Click the Save to Folder(s)/Save to New Folder button to complete the action.

Step 7

To access your folders, click the Class Prep in the navigation bar on the top of any page and then select My Folders from the drop-down menu.

Step 8

On your Lesson Folders page, you can click the folder title to view and print the lessons inside the folder. You can also add or delete any folders or edit the name and description of your folders on this page.
