Course Starter Templates Inspired by Restaurant Menus #373

Restaurant Menu Inspired Course Starters #373: Challenge | Recap

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to design a course starter template using design elements from restaurant menus.

You can include as many slides as you like, but your goal should be to find the most essential content slides course designers would need to start building an e-learning course using restaurant menu themes. On average, course starter templates include 6-10 common slide types. 

Here are some examples you could include in your course starter:

  • Cover slide
  • Objectives slide
  • Content slide
  • Quiz slide
  • Interaction slide (tabs, timeline, etc.)
  • Scenario slide

What are Course Starter Templates?

Course starters are multi-slide templates that combine the most common e-learning content and interaction slides. Starter templates provide a structure to the design, layout, and flow of an e-learning course.

Below you'll find a few examples from previous course starter challenges.
