FasterCourse is an e-learning company located in Latvia, and it exists as a separate company since 2014. FasterCourse offers three types of products to help you develop your own e-learning course.
They offer e-learning templates to kickstart your e-learning development process in Articulate Storyline, Adobe Captivate, or Lectora.

Now let’s zoom in on their e-learning templates. FasterCourse has e-learning templates for Articulate Storyline, Articulate Storyline two, three, and Articular Storyline 360, Adobe Captivate, Lectora, and also illustrated characters for your e-learning projects. Now let’s take a look at some of the Articulate Storyline templates. FasterCourse offers Articulate Storyline templates, and if you scroll down, also Articulate Storyline game templates. Now let’s look at the Articulate Storyline templates from FasterCourse. Let’s take a look for instance at their early morning template. As you can see their early morning template set contains 25 different templates slides. And if you click on the thumbnail, the templates will be loaded.
So I’ll go to the beginning because I already opened this one again. What do you see? The template set contains a menu bar with here, a menu button, a help button, a play, a pause button. Here you can see the title for the whole course, a page numbering and here a previous and on the next slide also the next button and on the next slide also the previous button. Now the templates are in five different categories: intro pages, text pages, click and review pages, hotspots and test pages.
Now you can, and you can use the templates anyway you like. You can add your own logo, for instance, change all the colors, change backgrounds add text, objects, videos, images, et cetera. You can fully adjust them completely the way you want and use them for your own projects. So let’s have a look at some text pages for this one. You see here I have the image on the left and text on the right. And here only text. If you will have a lot of texts for your e-learning project and other texts. When it’s loaded, you see keynotes, so different shorts texts on a slide. Now let’s take a look at some click and review pages.
For instance here at the timeline, you’ll see with an animation and if you click the years, there is a pop up with some extra information, what happened that year. So let’s go to the next slide. I click and review the image menu on the left. And if you click at the menu you get extra information, the title, text, and an image. Now let’s look at some hotspots.
You’ll see your hotspot page where you can click and you get a pop-up. And here is our test, that is the last category, where you have single choice questions, multiple choice answers, questions, and also drag and drop questions. Now let’s look at one of the FasterCourse game examples. So I go back to FasterCourse and I scroll down on this page. And here you see the storyline game templates. So for instance, let’s click the first one. I don’t want, and this is a true or false game. A card game. I click on start.
The storyline loads and you get a card and you can choose if it’s correct or incorrect or false or true, and you can drag it to one of the two categories and can get the next card. And on this way, you can completely edit this template, just like the template text so you can adjust the colors, adjust the backgrounds, add other cards, add a new logo so you can completely customize it like you want for your own company and for your own use.
Now let’s look and what do you get when you decide to subscribe to the FasterCourse template library. You’ll get access to 730 Articulate Storyline templates and games. 821 Adobe Captivate templates, 503 Lectora templates and also five, 470 e-learning characters images on a transparent background. So it can let you show you some of the characters right away and you have free access for all this stuff for the next 12 months with no additional costs and if there are new templates or new characters edit in the upcoming year, you are getting them free for your subscription now and you’ve paid a fee of $499 per year. And if you fill in the coupon code “upward online” on the checkout page, you will get a 10% discount on the subscription fee and I will show you at the end of the video how you can do this.
So what do you get when you have a subscription on the FasterCourse template library. Now you have the option to download all the templates and illustrated characters for use in projects. And what do you get when you download something, you get a zip file and this contains, for instance, let’s see the early morning templates. It contains an illustrator file for the interface so you can adjust some interface things if you don’t have an illustrator, a subscription, you can also use a graphic designer and you can find a link in the description box below to this program. And next to if you find two files, a story file, and a story template file. So let’s open the story file.
So here you see all the templates from the early morning templates library. So on every page, there’s a template that you can use for your own e-learning project. Now the templates from Articulate Storyline are built the storyline too, but you can easily upgrade them and also use them in Articulate Storyline 3, and Articulate Storyline 360. So what it is, let’s see, for instance, this one is you have the image on the right and text here and also everything has a nice and descriptive name. So everything is also great, yeah, set up. So you can easily adjust it. These images, lines, and also the note bar and the note bar is in the slide master.
So if you go to the slide master file, you can see here is the navigation bar. You can here change the title of the e-learning module and also, let’s see where it is… You have the different template sets and here is also the help page, and the menu slides that you saw earlier.
So let’s click another one. For instance, this one you’ll see here is an image on the, as background, and there is an overlay here. So it’s easy to adjust this and add your own images and have the same look and feel with a triangle here and the other image here. So it’s really easy to adjust these templates.
Now let’s also look at a card game template. I want to open it for you in Articulate Storyline so we can look at it. So this is the story file for you, for the card game. Where you can see here, there’s also a description, how to cart game works and you can easily adjust everything. Here also, everything has a nice and descriptive name. So it’s easily adjustable.
The only thing for some templates, FasterCourse uses, and that’s not, here it is, open fonts uses, where can I show it to you here? Google web fonts and they are not included. So for some templates, you have to download the Google web fonts, but that’s not a really big deal.
So what I really like about the FasterCourse templates, is their design and also the easiness to adjust it. I think that there are the best templates, design templates that you can find for Articulate Storyline on the internet. A little bit improvement for the FasterCourse templates is, for instance, to also deliver a link to the Google fonts. So it’s easy to download them and use them for the projects. But that’s a minor thing for the templates. So at last, let’s look at how you can subscribe to the template set and how you can fill in the coupon code “upward online” to get your discount.
So I’ll go back to Artic, to the FasterCourse website, click on templates… It will load. I’m on templates. So I choose here, “get access now” for… And go to my template library subscription. I click on “subscribe now.” So it will load. Now I’m on my checkout subscription page. Now what I can do here is fill in a discount code and if I feel in “upward online” and click on apply, you’ll see that there is a 10% discount on the price of $499 and now your price is $449.10.
