Creating items with Storyline or PowerPoint

I know it’s been a long time since I posted on my blog, but I’ve been very busy with some e-learning projects for the company I’m working for. Today, I will post a few items created with Storyline or PowerPoint shapes. I just want to show you how easy it is: you don’t need to be a graphic designer to create simple and nice items for your modules!



This car is made of 3 shapes in Storyline: a freeform for the main part of the car, and two circles for the wheels. Creating the freeform is not very hard, because the form is mainly made of straight lines. For the wheels, the shapes outline is white and thick.


Here are more complex cars, created in PowerPoint:


Those cars require more shapes, and to be very careful with the front/back order of each shape. Here are the different shapes used to create each car:

In the second car, the two white shapes for the windows are freeform too.

Then, I grouped all the shapes, and added a ‘glow’ effect.


This one is very simple!



Screens (tablet, laptop…)

Creating a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone is very simple with Storyline or PowerPoint. I think I don’t need to show you the different shapes I used for the following items. There are very easy to do.




I created those building in Storyline. It was not complicated but required a lot of shapes (for the windows). Also, the outlines and the front/back settings between shapes are important.
