Child characters for eLearning

Sep 01, 2016

I'm totally new to eLearning and I am trying to produce some learning material for my charity.

The  charity, Guiding Forces,  finds mentors from our great veteran network and places them with young people. The overarching principle for our mentoring is that everything is child focused/centred.

My idea for the character is for example when I want the child protection learning to be introduced I would like a child to present it and word it something like "I want to be safe and I need to know you understand what child safeguarding is about. If you complete this training you will learn how to keep me safe" or something along those lines.... might have to get a young person to word it for me.

where can I find some young people characters (cartoons I think would be best) and what do you think of my idea of the end user angle for delivery?

The eLearning Brothers library has a number of cutout photos with children characters. I've used these for several courses.

eLearning Art also has some children. There aren't as many choices, but if these will work for your needs, it's probably cheaper.

Whether you use cartoons or photos is really a question of what kinds of visuals you're using for the whole course. If your whole course has a cartoon style, then the characters should be too. If the rest of the course uses photos, I would use photo characters for consistency.

Hi Chris,

I have 2 child characters (boy and girl) available on my website. Once installed, they work exactly like the default characters in Storyline. You can mix and match expressions with different poses.
