Templates generally contain color schemes and slide layouts, but probably not slide contents. Not sure how you created your template, nor what you mean by template (there are a LOT of possibilities), but the only way to know for sure is to import your template into a new presentation, and see if it does what you want.

I've actually used templates like this before with more than just color schemes and stuff - fun quiz/game layouts, etc. and it has worked... but all of a sudden I had a freak out moment wondering if I'm possibly setting myself up for corruption by not keeping source files with templates.

When you say source files, Macy, are you referring to media that you've included in your course?  We use "source file" to refer to your .story file for your course.

You can save your .story files as a template by choosing Save As and changing the extension to .storytemplate.  You'll want to keep those locally stored, as well.

As for the media, however, you can probably just insert placeholders in the template version so that you don't have to overwhelm your computer with unnecessary content.
