If you are going to use a LONG datatype, you might as well just declare it as VARCHAR2(32767) as that is what you are limited to. If you are storing it as JSON and are unsure of the data length, I’d be using a CLOB.

I don’t know anything about Oracle, so I have little idea what this means, but I thought you might want to talk to your Oracle DBA. The most complex table in Lessons is lesson_builder_items. It has 5 fields that are CLOB. If this isn’t going to work, I can use fewer, but it would require significant code changes.
