Inexpensive or Free eLearning resources for Storyline

Apr 25, 2013

I was talking to Dave Anderson a few weeks ago at a SL workshop he and Tom K did in San Diego.  We were exchanging resources and he asked if I would share a couple on the forum.  Here are three that I use almost weekly.  Free PSD Files - this site has hundreds of professionally rendered .PSD files.  I find what I like, download them, and use Photoshop to modify them for my purposes.  They also have really cool cartoon characters for kids and business, if you are into those.  I am   A great resource.  SlideTeam Powerpoint Templates - this site has thousands of PowerPoint slides and templates.  I look for graphic elements that I want (like boxes, 3-12 step models, pie charts, as well as pictures) in the presentations and download the entire file.  I then ungroup everything and save what I want as .JPGs.  This isn't free, but it's only $49 a year.  One of my favorite sites.  Presenter Media - Do you want to add motion graphics to your presentations?  This site has more than I can count.  It's pretty cool.  The cost is $60 a year.  Tagxedo - Need a word cloud?  This site lets you create them.  It's free.  eLearning Brothers - I'm sure you've heard of them.  A great resource, but it's $299 a year.

I'll probably buy the Storyline character set from Articulate, but I'm waiting a while.

I hope this was helpful.

Mike, - tks for the links.  I'm trying to figure out how to download the .PSD files.  I really like uiparade.  Are those free downloads or just for inspiration.  I can't create anything that looks as good as their content.  Impressive.

Checked out Rapid eLearning Templates.  Nice, but expensive.  The 30% discount helps.

BTW... Some of my slides aren't appearing on my menu.  Any ideas what may cause that?  All the slide properties are right.
