E-Learning Template Makeovers

E-Learning Template Makeover #65: Challenge | Recap

Happy first-challenge-of-the-year, E-Learning Heroes!

Remember last year’s template makeover challenge? It was a fun one. The challenge was simple: Begin with a generic template and transform it into a real project.

Your examples were some of the most amazing and creative we’ve seen (check out this recap post). It was really cool to see everyone begin with the same starter template and then build something uniquely their own. Since that time, folks have asked when we’re doing another template makeover. Well, here ya go—with a twist.

Challenge of the Week

This week your challenge is to find three different templates and combine them into a single template with a unified design. You don’t need to use real content in your final template design—the current placeholder content will work fine.

This challenge is more about unifying design styles from multiple sources.

You can work from the free templates in our downloads section or use any other templates you have.


You can use Articulate Storyline, Articulate Studio, Microsoft PowerPoint or another tool to create your final template template.


Here are some articles that will help you think through your template design. If you get stuck on ideas, just ask in the comments below and we’ll share some more ideas.
