Stop Designing from a Blank Canvas! Get a Jump Start on Your Next E-Learning Project with Button Starter Kits
- Fantastic starting point for many e-learning projects
- Mock up projects with button kits to give clients a general idea of how the course will look
- Customize the buttons after you’ve decided on the general design and layout
- Save development time by using existing buttons
Today’s authoring tools make developing e-learning easier than ever.
But that doesn’t mean course designers always have extra time to play with new design ideas, much less start every project from scratch.
The goal for most designers should be to find ways to reuse common course elements like content slides, quizzes, interactions, and, of course, UI elements.
We already looked at course starter templates and how they can help designers create a general structure for their projects. This week we’re going to look at a smaller component of course starters: button kits.
Button Starter Kit by Montse Anderson
This button starter kit features a static view of the core button states (normal, hover, selected, and disabled) as well as prebuilt button sets in both dark and light colors.
Button Starter Kit by Matt Guyan
This outstanding button template contains prebuilt buttons for navigation, quizzing, and content slides. The kit also includes several animated buttons to give your projects a creative touch.
Bilingual Button Kit by Alexander Salas
This button kit provides a creative solution for bilingual courses by using the button hover states to include the translated text.
Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to share a button starter kit for e-learning. Include as many different button types and styles as you’d expect to use in a typical course.
This week’s challenge is not a repeat of our animated button challenge. That button challenge was more about playing with creative effects for buttons. What we’re looking for this week are more complete sets of buttons to help designers get a jump start on their projects.
