I'm thinking about it, but every year we all receive lots of virtual cards in our emails, and it get's boring. The elements are always the same: a Christmas tree, a snowman, Santa Claus... 

 

So I wonder: are you guys preparing Christmas presentations for your clients? Has it worked in previous years?

 

Thank you very much for your answers,

Hey Belen,

 

Though we stuck to the traditional greeting this year, we did circulate a Christmas themed Articulate skin for those who may wish to do something different. You can download it from here if it interests you.

Thank you very much for sharing!

I think it's a different skin and can add value to an e-learning greeting card.

 

Anyone else greeting Christmas to clients with Articulate?

Hello Belen,


I create a Christmas card for my clients with articulate online, I wanted a click of magic and I let my creativity go then I'll let you see my creation.

@ Windmill learning your wallpaper is very pretty with the green buttons.

How do you to insert a different wallpaper traditional colors?

 

I wish all happy holidays commonality

Hi Belen, I created a little Christmas card in Storyline and put it on my blog.

I did not push it to clients though. I still believe sending a card with a handwritten note is more meaningful and will stand out more then any e-card you send.

@Marie, nice card, it has a professional look.

@Nancy, I agree with you, it's better not to push it to clients, but to send a "real" card that they can touch. Well, some of my clients are far away, I don't even know their addresses... I'll give a thought to this.

 

Thank you for your ideas!

Thanks, Mickey, though it seems to be a web to buy rings instead...

I'm designing something, I'll upload it when it's done!

 

Have a good end of the world day.

I did the following Christmas card last year as part of the first Storyline beta.  Was just trying to do something fairly "music video" simple with photos and music and a little message and a tablespoon of Storyline magic..

 

I've dusted it off and spruced it up a tad and have used it this year to send to a few friends and colleagues.

 

Enjoy and happy holidays to everyone.   If ever we needed the spirit of Christmas . . . .

Wow, Gerry, it's very positive, it made me smile!

Thanks for sharing.

I thought of something modest, though.

But anywaym, this holiday card is inspiring!

Hello Belen,

 

It was great fun to design my Christmas cards using Storyline (and a little help from my elves!).

Hi Annick,

 

As professional as usual! It's really nicely address to kids and their parents.

I like it a lot!

 

Merry Xmas!

Hi guys,

I did ours in After Effects based on a template - see attached.  You could also use the hand pack at http://www.elearningart.com/Hand_Cutouts_p/hand.bundle.htm

 

Hope every one has a great break and a wonderful 2013

Cheers
