This week’s challenge is to create a set of e-learning images to share with other course designers. Recently I’ve been contributing images to morgueFile via their daily challenges (which I wrote about here), but was excited to put together a full set of related images.
I was headed to a nearby island with a friend on Saturday anyway, so I grabbed my camera and spent a chilly afternoon snapping away. This location is often used for group retreats, and I tried to capture as many types of usable images as possible.
It’s easy to make simple background images. Below left you can see my pictures of wine glasses and some dry plants. On the right are the same pictures after I applied a couple of PowerPoint effects. It’s simple and I love the result.
When I create e-learning scenarios, I try to treat them like a movie. I go for the wide establishing shot, the group shot, the two-person shot, the one-person shot, and all sorts of close-ups. I took lots of pics with that approach in mind, where you can easily add in characters. These images are also HUGE, so they’re easy to crop to focus on any area you’d like.
Objects & Themes
Recycling? Home? Nature? Recreation? Food Service? I found lots of image subgroups to play with. With a little creativity, they can be used in endless ways.

You can get some or all of the 198 of the (huge) pictures I took for this challenge right here. I hope you enjoy them – and if you’re able to use them in your own projects I’d love to hear what you did! Have fun!
