Freebies

Are you a designer or developer who likes freebies? If so, you’ve come to the right place! My goal here is to provide templates for you to use in your next projects. You will see a .zip file containing everything you need to get started.

 

Below you will find Articulate Storyline Templates

 

Free Form Image Drag & Drop

The Drag & Drop functionality is a highly sought-after function in eLearning activities. What is it about a user being able to click on a term and match it to its definition? My opinion on this is that it efficiently displays certain types of content like vocabulary terms, but allows Instructional Designers to chunk the material in a way that is not over-bearing for users.

Please click on the image to launch the Drag & Drop activity I created for a Marketing course. I used the Free Form slides in Storyline and brought in my own imagery approved by the SME.

Free Form Quiz

The Free Form Quiz slides are the best option when you have custom artwork you need to implement. If you are working with a graphic designer then the customization possibilities are nearly endless! You can be a literal powerhouse when it comes to student engagement using Storyline products.

Please click on the image to launch the quiz I created for a Behavioral Science course using the Free Form slides. I decided to give the quiz itself a very flat design since that seemed to be a web trend in 2016. The functionality is simple, and the ability to be programmed to feed directly into LMS grade centers is a nice enhancement for our course work.

Module Learning

Most professionals understand the need for breaking up projects into manageable pieces. Rome wasn’t built in a day and the same should be true for your work unless you have a serious deadline to meet. In that case, you may want to have a look at this example I created for a student onboarding program. For this project I drew much of my inspiration from print design layouts, while still having a little fun with the color palette dictated by the style guide.

Please click on the image to launch the first of a series of three modules. The information you see is intended specifically for the student body at National University.

Microinteraction

Basically, I think Microinteractions are THE BEST! For anyone who doesn’t know what a Microinteraction is, I think the most important thing to know about them is that they make viewing or creating a small piece of content, fun. By chunking your material you are setting up your content to be communicated efficiently. If you can communicate information through movement on a website or in a course, you are giving your end-users another level of thinking and information processing. Your users are more likely to stare at their screens and watch the movement unfolding!
