Is there a way to temporarily switch to an empty cloud/library?

I'm a Lightroom teacher and trying to figure out the best way to have an empty library when I record my course. To show beginners how you import your first images, etc. But since I also use Lightroom for my own photography, I have over 100.000 photos in my library right now. I don't want them to show up when I go to "all photos" or use the search function.

When teaching Lightroom Classic, I can just create a new catalog for the course. Is there something equivalent in cloud-based Lightroom? Or do I have to create a new Adobe-ID and get a separate subscription for this?

No, other than deleting all online content or having those IDs.

This is just a thought.....

If you are using this extensively for education then it may be worth having a second subscription for this purpose. In that way the labour saved in setting up for each session, plus the convenience may be worth the price. it also means you are not compromising your own setup for such sessions. I can see this working well for the Cloud Based subscription, but not as simple for the Desktop apps.
