Resources on graphics/ graphics styles?

Hey everyone!

Today at work, my colleague asked me to research some new and interesting "graphics styles" (not sure if you call it that?:P) that we can show to our graphic design team as inspiration for our internal image library. These images will then be inserted into the eLearning courses that we develop.

I've been doing some research about this, but I haven't really been able to find anything of value as yet. I was wondering if any of you have anything useful you'd like to share?

I already had a look at this post in the Rapid eLearning Blog: http://www.articulate.com/rapid-elearning/15-interesting-clip-art-styles-for-your-e-learning-courses/ But we are trying to avoid clip art at the moment. (Long story, but it comes down to perceptions and opinions about clip art not being the best idea to use in our courses, etc).

I'd appreciate any help

Hello,

I am trying to add a logo in the left hand bottom corner of the presenter player template to replace the one with a link to Articulate. I have found how to remove the Articulate logo. I have tried to follow the steps in Articulate going into the text editor (notepad) and changing the HTML of the Playerproperties.xml file but it is not working. The logo I added in the HTML (which was added in the Player file as a .swf file, does not appear on my presenter player template. Is there something else that I need to do?

Thanks!

Hi Maude,

As far as I know, the only place we're able to insert logo's is in the logo panel of the articulate player template at the top left corner of the screen. The powered-by articulate logo can only be removed from the template, not replaced.

Let me know if you need some more help with this!

The Articulate help suggest to do the following:

Player Templates    Replace the Articulate logo in the player

You can use your own logo in the lower left-hand corner of the Presenter ’09 player. Your custom logo needs to be a Flash .SWF file and you can optionally add your own website link to your logo.

If you’re simply looking to remove the Articulate logo in the lower left-hand corner (and not replace it), refer to the section on “Display powered-by logo” in Player Templates -> Player Controls.

If you’d like to display your own logo in the upper left-hand corner, refer to Presentation Options -> Logos.

To use your own logo in the lower left-hand corner of the Articulate Player:

  1. In your published output, copy your custom logo to the player folder.
  2. In your published output, open the data folder, then open playerproperties.xml in your text editor.
  3. In the section of playerproperties.xml, add the following code:
         true     custom_logo_name.swf
Therefore, I think we can do it and the Communication team in our department has replaced it with the Canada Wordmark, it can be done, but how?

Sorry the copy/paste isn't working well:
