The purpose of templates
First, a little bit about templates. Templates provide a framework or foundation for our content. Templates can provide design and structure queues, as well as graphic assets to speed up our content creation.
The idea of templates is that you simply need to swap out the content with your own, and your done!
Copying the Template

Copying the template is fairly straight forward - you need to find the "Reuse" button located near the bottom of the h5p element.
Clicking on this button will provide you two options, we will select the second option: "Copy content".
