Rather recently, in Excel was added an awesome template—“Drop-down tutorial.” It is an interactive tutorial with immediate feedback and some features I really like. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly encourage you to give it a look.

I believe it's written using something like OfficeScript API. But I might be mistaken. As an MCT, I would love to be able to develop such templates (tutorial) myself to use them during my courses. Is there a chance the source code of this template is available somewhere (or open-sourced), so I could have a look at it?

I know that it is not the best solution, I also know that I am certainly not the most suitable for this question, but here is some information that might help you. If you think that this is not what you need to do for you, please ignore this information.

 

Create a canvas app from scratch based on Excel data

Save a workbook as a template

Thank you for your patience and time.

I know I don't know anything (Socrates)

Thank you, Nikolino, for your response.

Unfortunately, this not what I was looking for. I hope I could find somebody in Microsoft who knows somebody who might help me.

Regards,
Dmitry

Dmitry, I also don't know how that was done, most probably something like https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js-docs-pr/blob/master/docs/testing/sideload-office-add-ins-for-... . In any case key word is webextensions. 

@Sergei Baklan 

Thank you very much, Sergei. I also lean towards add-ins. I hoped to find some simpler solution, though.
