Types of eLearning Templates
Whether you are using Storyline, Captivate, Lectora, PowerPoint, or some other eLearning software tool (aka authoring tool), there are various kinds of eLearning templates you should be on the lookout for. A few of these include:
- Artistic Themes: Designing great looking eLearning requires an experienced artist’s touch. eLearning Templates are available that include pre-created screen layouts including custom bullets, fonts, and imagery that relates to a given theme or industry. For example, themes are available for general office environments, health care settings, industrial environments, and more. You simply customize these designs to meet your needs.
- Click to Reveal: If you want to give your learner a break from listening to the voice talent and want to engage their senses on a different, more active level, consider a Click to Reveal template. This activity type presents the learner with a few clickable items that, when clicked, reveal additional text on the screen
- Drag and Drop (True/False): When it’s time to test a learner’s comprehension, the drag and drop activity type is an eLearning standard. Users are presented a series graphics or other items that they must drag from one area to another on the screen. For example, you can create icons to represent different kinds of documents that users must drag to a folder or trash can indicating whether they should retain or destroy that document type.
- Drag & Drop (Sequence): Similar to the True/False drag-and-drop type, you can require that learners rearrange items into a specific sequence or step-order.
- Interactive Games: Modern eLearning games frequently attempt to apply real-world games with which people are already familiar to online courses. For example, there are templates for creating games in the style of Jeopardy, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire, Hangman, Wheel of Fortune, and more. Games can be a way to inject an element of fun and challenge into your online courses.
