If you look closely, you’ll notice that content is delivered through conversations in many types of media… in movies, TV shows, interviews, commercials, and more. Part of the beauty of conversations is that the content is delivered and you aren’t even aware of it. And, of course, I’ll provide the source files for a FREE eLearning template at the bottom of the post. Storytelling. wouldn’t.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2012 Free images and a great storytelling technique for eLearning
You can incorporate many techniques from film to improve your training. You don’t need a blockbuster movie budget to incorporate some cool techniques from movies. In fact, a lot of what I learn from movies and TV is more about storytelling than special effects. Take the example of the “establishing shot” that my good friend, Dave Richards, from e-Mersion introduced to me.

JANUARY 24, 2013 Icon Sets: 5 questions to ask before you buy or download
Back before I started eLearningArt, I worked on a consulting project in a niche industry that had a limited supply of useful stock images. Given our budget, conducting a custom photo-shoot was out of the question. On the other end of the spectrum, we also didn’t want the unprofessional feel of using mismatched clipart. Don’t mix and match. Do the icons convey meaning? Add animated effects to icons.

ASSETS Add Contrast for Emphasis
| WEDNESDAY, MAY 30, 2012
Hello there! It’s Art again – E-Learning Art – bringing you another lesson to enhance your e-learning scenarios. In my last post, I talked about facial expressions and provided a lesson on how you could add that effect into your own training. One of the greatest advantages of building your scenarios with elearning characters and backgrounds that are separated is that you have the ability to add contrast. For example, check out the images below: By adding a simple shading effect to the background, I’ve made the characters above stand out. Background Effects. MORE >>

ASSETS Rapid Storyboarding and a FREE Template
| WEDNESDAY, JUNE 6, 2012
One of the most painful lessons I’ve learned as an elearning developer is that what I envision and what my boss or client expect are often very different. think we’re on the same page in an initial meeting. Then I go back to my desk, close myself off to the world and build what I think is a super-awesome course. bring it out for some feedback after dozens of hours of work, and they make some change requests about the design or functionality that, while seemingly simple, would require many hours to implement. Download the Free Template. You can download the source files here. What it’s good for. MORE >>
ASSETS Present course information in a cool way with display board eLearning templates
| THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2013
When I work with display board eLearning templates, the image of the display board is only one part of the design. You’re probably used to seeing images like this (you don’t need to read the content, it’s just a placeholder): …which is fine. But when I use display boards in my eLearning courses, the image above is just 1 of several views that I use. Incorporate storytelling by creating multiple views. Information on a board is visually interesting, but it doesn’t take advantage of the opportunity to add a storytelling component to your eLearning course. Use 3 views for screens too. MORE >>
