Articulate Rapid E-Learning Blog - free PowerPoint elearning template

I was digging through some files recently and found this template idea that I started a while back but never did anything with it. It’s built to feel a bit like a book. This could work for an information course or for performance support.

PowerPoint Template Demo

Below is a demo of the free PowerPoint elearning template. I added generic content with images and videos to give you some ideas on how the template could be used.

This PowerPoint template consists of eight core layouts. Of course you can always add more.

Look through the demo I put together to see how I used the layouts with different types of content. That should give you some ideas. The last slide of the template has the color scheming that I used. Use format painter to apply the format to your own shapes and text if you want to use the same formatting.

Click here to download the file. I also included the Pacifico font in the download. It comes via the Google Web Fonts site and the font was created by Vernon Adams.

Great demo…I haven’t been rickrolled in a while…ha! Thanks for another great template. I like its clean lines. I’ll use this one soon.

Is there anyway I can get the whole demo so that I can replace my content and remove you demo stuff so that I can have all the triggers that are associated with the demo.

Thanks Frank

Try a little diagonal gradient shading on that page curl, to make it more of a curl and less of a flattened dog-ear.

Also, wipe animations (at least in raw PowerPoint) can make the pages actually turn.

@Frank: connect with me and I can get it to you.

I don’t know whether I’m more excited about the template or the videos in it. I haven’t been rick-rolled in a long time. 😀

Thanks, Tom!

Ha! Rick-rolled in elearning–I love it!

LOL! Yep, I just got Rick-rolled, too! That was a good one!

Does the demo have narration? I only get audio on the videos

@Pat: no narration

A novice question perhaps, but how do you get the PPT into the player.html format?

You’ll need software that converts the PowerPoint to Flash like Articulate Presenter does.

Thank you so much for sharing this template. I’ve made some modifications and used it for the following course. So, if you are interested in seeing the template in action, here is the link to the tempshare site. Thank you again for all your inspirations. I am learning so much especially incorporating interactives using Storyline.


@Alice: good job incorporating the template into Storyline. I like the way you did the quick choice review on slide 2.6.
