Creative Button Styles and Effects in E-Learning

Animated Button Effects #89: Challenge | Recap

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to have fun with buttons! Play with different shapes, styles, and effects to show how you can use buttons creatively in e-learning. Be sure to include the Normal, Hover, and Selected states in your work.

Examples of Animated Button Effects

This week’s challenge is all about buttons. I’ve rounded up a few sites that feature creative hover effects. While not all hover styles and effects are possible in Storyline, there are a lot of creative ideas to help you create your own buttons.

Icon Hover Effects

Here’s a great collection of simple hover effects for circular buttons. Most of the effects can be applied to other button shapes.
