Smart Colors, how to manage color when designing e-learning courses


The isEazy Author templates are great and are very helpful for coming up with ideas for visually appealing slide layouts. However, can you remember all the times when you’ve selected a template and have had to manually change each element to adapt it to your company’s corporate colors? You’ll be glad to know that you’ll never have to do that again.

isEazy Author now offers Smart Colors and they will radically change the way you manage color in your projects, to save you even more time in your content layout.

How do they work?

Smart Colors are an improvement in color samples. Thanks to these, you’ll be able to use our suggested color palettes created by our designers, so you won’t have to worry about which colors match best. We knew we could do better, so now you know, Smart Colors are the best way to make the most out of your e-learning courses.

Depending on the type of account you have, you can also modify them with your favorite colors or even create completely customized color palettes for your projects, which will be tailored entirely to the style and template you use. Choose your color palette at the start, and you’re all set! isEazy Author will take care of the rest.

Why Smart Colors will speed up your e-learning course design?

Smart colors are one of those upgrades that might seem like a Small detail, but they make a big difference:

  • Colors from your palette are applied to all templates with a theme: By choosing colors from your palette when creating your project, all templates with that theme will adapt to them. This means that every time you create a slide based on a new template, you’ll be happy to see how the colors are applied. Amazing!
  • Modifying dynamic colors: Imagine that you’ve already created half of your course and you decide you’re not happy with a color. Up until now, changing it meant going through each slide, modifying the elements created with that color. Since colors are now smart – and dynamic – when you change the color in your palette, all elements with that color will automatically be modified on all slides in your project. It’s not magic, it’s smart!
  • Visual consistency: Ensure that your projects are visually consistent without spending time on tedious checks. Have you ever forgotten to change the color of a title on one of your slides? With Smart Colors, that’s something that belongs to the past.

The result? Play with your color palette and try out a new look for your project in a matter of seconds!

If you already use isEazy Author on a regular basis, you’ll notice a significant increase in your productivity. As soon as you try them out, you’ll wonder how you could have lived without them for so long! You’ll get used to this process right away… You can forget about the days when selecting text and changing color took up a lot of your time.

If you regularly use other authoring tools, we encourage you to try isEazy Author and its Smart Colors. You will be able to create memorable courses with your corporate content and amaze your audience.

How to use Smart Colors?

Using smart colors has never been so easy. Create your new project as you normally would and choose your favorite theme. Once selected, the next step will be to select your color palette.

Choose the palette that you like the most or personalize it with your colors (if your account is Business or Enterprise) and see how all templates with that theme or style adapt to it.

Once you start creating your project, you’ll always have your color palette close on hand to modify it whenever you need it.

Want to maintain a unified style throughout the project? Always use the colors in your palette when creating elements or slides from scratch. Each color in the palette has a name and a description, so that you always use them in the same manner. That way, if you decide afterwards to change the color of your palette, all the elements that you created using that color will automatically be modified. Isn’t it great?

Have you ever imagined it would be so easy? Start creating your e-learning courses and presentations with your color palettes. Just focus on the content, and we’ll take care of the rest!
