The Rapid Elearning Blog

Articulate Rapid E-Learning Blog - 40 free PowerPoint templates

PowerPoint is hot. This makes sense because it’s the most popular elearning tool out there. It’s easy to learn. And once you understand how to use it to build rapid elearning courses, the sky’s the limit.

In an earlier post I listed all of the ones that dealt with PowerPoint.  It’s a good one to bookmark. Because it was so popular I decided to make another post that highlights all the ones that include free PowerPoint templates or other free assets.

Be sure to take advantage of the free templates & assets in the elearning community, too. As always, you can use these templates as you wish.

Can you build an “end date” into your articulate e-learning? That is – can you restrict the length of time it will run?

Hi Georgina,

The Articulate tools don’t have a stock expiration date feature built-in. You may be able to achieve something with JavaScript in Storyline, but it might take a little exploration. The good news is that course deployment and time restrictions can typically be handled by most websites and LMSs/CMSs where courses are stored and launched. So if you’ll be hosting the content, you can achieve the same effect.

Here are a couple of threads where folks have discussed this topic:

Also, I’d suggest heading over to the Articulate forums and posing your question. Lots of smart people there who could help you out!

Hi Georgina,

That’s a great question! Could you post it in the eLearning Heroes forums? We can follow up with you there and also leverage the 100K members in the community!
