Everything you wanted to know about the awesome eLearning Brothers Tools, but were afraid to ask.


Live chat Liz here, with answers to your most commonly-asked questions about the eLearning Brothers Awesomeness built inside Lectora® Inspire! Since the release of Lectora Inspire 12.1, we’ve heard a lot of excitement about this new feature for our Inspire users, but as with anything new there are questions too. On the live chat I hear a LOT of them. Here’s a recap of everything you need to know about how to access your eLearning Brothers account, what is included in your license of Inspire, and what you can choose to add on.

How do I access eLearning Brothers content inside my license of Inspire?

The eLearning Brothers Lectora Template Library, Cutout People, and Interaction Builder are all integrated into Inspire. You will only need to log in once before you can start downloading. You can find the login screen in Lectora in the Lectora Tools menu, located in the sliding library menu on the right. You will also access these features on this sliding screen, or on the tools ribbon under “Inspire Tools.”

How do I get my login credentials to access eLearning Brothers content?

eLearning Brothers sends out user information via email to eligible users. Your username will be your email address, and your password is included on your setup email. If you have not received this information with your full version of Lectora Inspire, please contact your account rep or stop by the live chat for assistance.If you already have a subscription account of any kind with eLearning Brothers, your login credentials will not change. If you are using a different email for communication with Trivantis than you are with eLearning Brothers, just notify your account rep that you would like to link your Lectora account to your existing eLearning Brothers account.

If I already have a subscription to the eLearning Brothers Template Library, do I need to keep it?

Many of our clients already subscribe to eLearning Brothers services, and who can blame them? Now that the templates are integrated into Inspire, all Inspire users are gaining access to the Lectora Template Library. This is a curated library with templates and course starters made just for Lectora and Camtasia®. Renewal of the Lectora Template Library is included in your annual Inspire maintenance.eLearning Brothers also offers their full template library, which includes templates and course starters for a range of other tools you or your developers may use, including PowerPoint. If you are currently using the full template library, or if you would like to start, ask your account rep about how you as an Inspire user can add this on at a reduced cost!

How do I access the eLearning Brothers Stock Assets Library?

The eLearning Brothers Stock Assets Library includes photos, video, and audio you can download and import into your courses. While this subscription is not included in your Inspire maintenance, it is accessible from the Lectora Tools menu in Inspire. You can add Stock Assets Library access to your existing account and manage your subscription through Trivantis with your regular renewals. Contact your account rep today for a demo and pricing structure!
