We’ve recently added lots of new templates for Lectora Inspire in our eLearning Template Library. Each template has 40+ pre-designed page layouts to choose from. You also get the content box images so that you can mix-and-match to create more. We include .psd and .png files along with the Lectora Titles. This way you can go in and change colors and make any graphic design change you need.
A subscription is needed to access the Lectora templates. Learn more about our eLearning Template Library...
