There is so much out there and so little time to source suitable material for eLearning so we want to focus on providing quality free and resources for our New Zealand and Australian Docebo clients.
One of the recent developments (the past 18 months) that I absolutely love in the growth of free to use eLearning /Web Design/ Interface Design resources in the design arena. This also includes royalty free music.
Here is a list of some (not all the music and sound resource sites we tap in to when creating eLearning modules for clients that are ideal for developing elearning content for Docebo courses.
SoundBible.com has thousands of free sound effects. It contains an extensive sound library with a broad category of sound so you are sure to find what you are looking for.
The sound library is updated 3x a week or more. Well worth using.
Public Domain 4U We use this site all the time. Free Domain – hey —– no royalties to pay. A bit limited but some good resources to use. Music is neatly categorized by Genres.
Archive.org I found this site by chance and use it at least four to five times a week. Internet Archive is a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more.
I love the old 20- 50’s music so great for personal use as well !
FreeSoundtrackMusic One of the biggest challenges we all face as eLearning designers is finding just the right music for just the right simulation or scenario. There are a lot of free tracks for use. Some limitations apply so make sure to read the licensing terms . ( Notably a link back to their website URL).
Freesound.org This is truly an “eat your heart out ” bonanza site of royalty free music. Run a search and you are sure to find what you are looking for to use in your next eLearning project.
Incompetech Pure quality musical recordings created by Kevin MacLeod. All of the tracks are free to download, but you have to include an attribution. Get your music rolling or your users in your Docebo learning platform .
