10 Websites for eLearning design inspiration

eLearning Heroes, 

I am sure that most of you who read posts on this site are subscribers to Tom’s Rapid eLearning Blog. If you’re not….why not? Anyway, some of my favorite posts are the ones related to deconstructing a website, or finding design inspiration from a magazine or some other media.

I have found several websites that have nice interactions, elearning samples, great presentations, etc. Since I was gathering these for the new folks in my organization…I thought it would be nice to share the links with everyone. Perhaps you have seen most of these, but maybe you haven’t. 

So here are 10 sites to use for eLearning design inspiration:

That's a great list, David - thanks for sharing! Another one that a lot of people like is templatemonster. It's a site that sells website templates, but many of the design ideas they show can be used as inspiration for elearning courses too. I like the site because you can search on a particular color and/or category and get some really nice ideas that way.
