Future Plans and what we have
accomplished this year so far

Hello, Everyone,

first of all thank you for being FasterCourse blog readers, and many of you also FasterCourse subscribers, thank you! We have lots of news coming, and I want to share our plans for the upcoming months with you, but before I do that, here is what has happened in the last few months.

New templates delivered

So far this year we have delivered several template packages for both Articulate Storyline and Adobe Captivate, first in the very beginning of January Freedom Valley Test arrived, you can see a screenshot and demo below.

Afterwards came not one, but actually two template packages with almost the same name “Forest” and “Forest Test”, they included everything you need to create a great looking course, course starter page templates, hotspot templates, click to reaveal templates, and other explanatory type template pages. And also amazing test templates, like single choice and multiple choice templates, as well as different kinds of drag and drops and text entry templates. See for yourself below:

Lots of new Freebies

We have to be honest, most of the new freebies came for the Articulate Storyline users, because we are active in the e-learning heroes challenges (e-learning heroes is Articulate community), and it just made sense to share them with everyone. You can see some of those here:

You can see and download all of them in our Storyline freebie section right here: Storyline freebies.

But Captivate users, you got less templates number wise, but you did get a super super nice and very useful freebie, that includes some amazing pages, like video page, single choice page and course starter page, meet the countdown freebie.

Future Plans – Amazing stuff coming soon

We have lots of stuff in the development pipeline and I will try describe all of them here.

Articulate Storyline blocks for Articulate Rise

Many of you use Articulate Rise, and it is an amazing tool, super easy to learn, Responsive and quite powerful, however, no as powerful as Storyline. Besides all Rise courses look a bit similar, try building more than 10, and I am sure you will agree. But there is an easy way to improve the situation, by spicing up the Rise courses with Storyline blocks. As you might now, there is an option to create an interaction in Articulate Storyline and then import it to Articulate Rise. And we want to help you in this process by designing and building a library of Articulate Storyline blocks for Articulate Rise. They look great and we plan to launch them very soon.

Escape Room Game for Articulate Storyline

Hell yeah, this is a wonderful creation from our development team, Artis came up with a crazy idea, and Līga helped with the design, and the result is frickin awesome. You will be able to give this baby a try very soon. This game will be available in Storyline, as it is super complex and it would be very difficult to create it in Captivate.

Two Roll the Dice games for Articulate Storyline

Additionally we are working on two new games with similar game dynamics, they will be “roll the dice” type of games. Both will be for Storyline as it is quite hard to replicate this game mechanics in Captivate.

Space Quiz game for both Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline

This game is similar to “Who wants to be a millionaire?” type of game, except no millions involved, but very much fun anyway :).

New Illustrated Characters

As you know, we have not only templates and courses, but also Illustrated Characters, and there are new characters coming, you can see a preview of them here.

New Courses

Additonally we are working also on adding two new courses to our course library, these will be called “Project Management” and “Emotional Intelligence”.

As you can see lots of stuff in the pipeline, which makes us excited, and hopefully you too. We will let you know once we start rolling out these projects.

Thanks for reading and have a good day!


    • Currently we are focusing on Articulate Storyline and Adobe Captivate, but we can think about something for Lectora users as well, just for fun, because to be honest, not much demand for Lectora templates these days.

    Hi Karlis

    Thank you for the update. It is excellent stuff.

    I do have a question regarding Adobe Captivate. As we all know, Adobe Captivate 2019 is changed its name to Adobe Captivate Classic, and All New Adobe Captivate (Beta) has finally been released, although I found it very limited still.

    I’m still very much an Adobe Captivate Classic user, so I’m very happy with your content (Templates). Still, I was curious. Are you planning to start creating some templates for All New Adobe Captivate in the future?

    Kind regards

  2. HI, I am not sure if my message yesterday got to you from my mobile phone? My question was what have you produced recently, and what do you intend to produce, for Lectora users? Taking this further, my personal desire would be for a comprehensive quiz/test facility. This would include the following question types (and perhaps others I have not thought of): multiple choice; multiple answer; true/false; fill in the blank; matching pairs; drag and drop images; drag and drop words; selection from lists: maths questions where students type in an answer; short answer; long answer/essay; polling tools for surveys, i.e. likert scales with pick from five or six potential responses.

    For each question number, there has to be more than one question available, for example a random choice from say six/eight questions for each question type. The aim here would be to stop students going back to the start of the quiz and correcting choices for the same questions seen at their first attempt. I do realise if you do not tell students the correct answers at their first attempt this makes a second attempt still challenging, but feedback is very desirable after a question to reinforce learning.

    However, as mentioned, quiz takers can be given feedback at the end of each question and/or at the end of the quiz, with a final score, a pass or fail message and ideally directions on which page(s)/section(s) to go back and review, with the aim of passing the quiz next time, or at later attempts.

    I think you do most of these questions in several Lectora templates, and the feedback and pass/fail elements, but I do not think you do it in one completely comprehensive template, as described above, unless I have missed it? The above described template is something I would really like to work with in my higher education teaching, I have Lectora Inspire version 18, and something I think I could get my employer to pay for if reasonably priced.

    Many thanks for listening to me

    • Hello David,

      sounds like a great idea, you are right, we do incorporate most of those question options in our Lectora templates, not sure, if in one package. This sounds like a very good option for a custom built template. We will think about it.

      Thanks again for commenting.
