Articulate 360 is a collection of Articulate tools including Storyline 360, Studio 360, Replay 360, and Peek.
One of my favorite things about the suite is the Content Library, a robust collection of eLearning assets. The Content Library includes hundreds or beautifully designed slide templates. The templates contain interactions, scenarios, infographics, several layouts, and some awesome content tips.
You'll also find thousands and thousands of photographic and illustrated characters. And if you can't find what you're looking for when you look around in the Library, just wait... Articulate plans to constantly add new assets... in theory, this thing will never stop growing!
You can easily access Library assets from within Storyline or Studio 360. For instance, in Storyline 360, select the Slides tab on the Ribbon. From the Slide group, click Content Library (shown in the image below).
The Content Library dialog box opens. In the example below, I selected Closings from the list of categories at the left. From the Vibrance group, I selected Contact and then clicked the Insert Slide button.
The resulting slide looked really good. It contained images, placeholder objects, and even tips for effective eLearning content. I was able to quickly replace the placeholder content with my own content. Honestly, you can have a slide done faster than you could have ever hoped for. What will you do with all of that extra time?
