I’ve posted a few times about free images as well as getting creative with video for learning in the past. Here a few other resources I normally go to when creating animation, slide visuals, interactive eLearning content.
Whiteboard/Video Scribing or other Explainer Videos
- PowerPoint – that’s right! “Death by PowerPoint” occurs only when there is death by lack of creativity!
Stock Photos and Cliparts
- Stock Exchange
- Microsoft Images (find cliparts and other royalty free images)
- Freepik (find anything from Adobe Illustrator templates, to icons, and logos)
If you’d like to create better storyboards that narrow down your content and focus your story on what needs to be told, not whatever can be told, visit the Storyboard Depot (Storyboards for eLearning) by The eLearning Coach (Connie Malamed).
Here are some excellent job aids (tools) to help you create effective visuals, by Dan Roam (author of The Back of the Napkin).
More details in a Prezi I created around infographics and explainer visuals creation for those that aren’t graphic designers.
