In our previous article we talked about the importance of utilising design best practices in your e-learning design. As part of TTRO’S quest to transform mundane e-learning into the magic, we rely heavily on good supporting graphic design to convey concepts and stories in an aesthetically pleasing manner.
Not everyone is fortunate to have stock-photography accounts or a team of designers on hand, but the global design community is an amazing place that comes together to share free templates and assets for all. We have done some digging and have found some superb sites that offer free design assets for you to use in your e-learning programmes. Be sure though to check out the creative commons instructions if applicable. We have chosen three categories based on the most used design components used by our team in their designs.



Pexels provides high quality and completely free stock photos licensed under the Pexels license. All photos are nicely tagged, searchable and also easy to discover through their discover pages.
Over 2 million free high-resolution images brought to you by the world’s most generous community of photographers.
Pixabay is a vibrant community of creatives, sharing copyright free images, videos and music. All contents are released under the Pixabay License, which makes them safe to use without asking for permission or giving credit to the artist – even for commercial purposes.
