It’s official. The holiday season is upon us and that means we can all use a little help. Whether it’s help with the shopping, cooking, or course building, this is no time to refuse a helping hand.
When it comes to course building, there’s no better way to kickstart your projects than with course starters. And that’s what this week’s challenge is all about!
What are Course Starter Templates?
Course starters are multi-slide templates that include a combination of the most common e-learning content and interaction slides. Starter templates provide a structure to the design, layout, and flow of an e-learning course. They don’t include every possible slide type, but they include enough slides to give users a working model from which they can begin assembling their projects.
Here are some previous course starter challenges to help you get started:
