Many of us stumbled into eLearning design and development with no graphic design training. But of course, with budgets tight and deadlines looming, you need to be able to create a good-looking training course all on your own. That’s why here at eLearning Brothers, not only do we build amazing templates for you to use, we also share graphic design tips for eLearning developers. You can use these design tutorials to add style to your eLearning projects. We've shared graphic design tips for Adobe Illustrator, Microsoft PowerPoint, Storyline hacks, and more.

Here are a few of our most popular graphic design tutorials for eLearning developers and instructional designers.
