What is Content Library?

Content Library is a collection of professionally-designed slide templates and relatable characters as well as 3+ million stock assets that dramatically speeds up your course development and wows your audience. We're constantly adding new assets to the library to inspire you and keep your designs fresh.

Take a tour of the Content Library to learn more.

Are Content Library images, icons, and videos royalty free?

Yes. Content Library has 3+ million photos, illustrations, icons, and videos from several sources that you can access right from Storyline 360. And you can choose Content Library photos and illustrations for your Rise courses with one click. They're all royalty free for commercial and non-commercial use—no attribution required.

Can I search for Content Library media in different languages?

You can't specify a language when searching for media, but non-English search terms will often give you good results. For example, enfants will return images and videos of children. If you don't find what you're looking for, try using the English equivalent for more results.

Will Content Library templates work with any slide size?

For the best results, we recommend using a standard 4:3 or widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio. However, slide templates will automatically adjust to fit custom slide sizes. In most cases, you won't need to make any changes after importing a template, but if your slide size is unusual—for example, portrait oriented or extremely widescreen—you might need to resize some objects to fit properly.

Can I purchase individual character packs from Content Library?

Character packs can't be purchased individually. When you subscribe to Articulate 360, you have full access to all course assets in our ever-growing Content Library.

Many of the characters in Content Library seem Westernized. Do you have culture-specific characters?

We're always adding new characters to Content Library. Our goal is to add more culture-specific characters over time.

If I have character packs installed for Storyline 1, Storyline 2, or Studio '13, will those characters work with Storyline 360 or Studio 360?

When you install Storyline 360 or Studio 360, Content Library versions of characters you've already installed will automatically download to your computer.

Can I use assets from Content Library with perpetual versions of Storyline and Studio?

Content Library assets work exclusively with Storyline 360 and Studio 360.

Where are Content Library assets stored on my computer?

When you use Content Library assets in your e-learning courses, they're downloaded and stored in this location on your local computer: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Articulate

What happens to assets I downloaded from Content Library when my Articulate 360 free trial or subscription expires?

Downloaded assets will remain on your computer when your trial or subscription expires, but you won't be able to use them since Storyline 360 and Studio 360 won't work.

However, if you later renew your subscription, you can continue using Storyline 360, Studio 360, and the Content Library assets you previously downloaded.

(Templates and characters from Content Library won't work with perpetual versions of Storyline or Studio.)
