We need to make a presentation to introduce our courses (rights issue)

Hello team,

So, we have some great-looking courses that we've created in Storyline. To introduce them to our users we'd like to create a short presentation with images from the course (for example, we'd like to introduce the characters that appear in the course) - I've been asked about rights. From your Terms:

You may use the Content Files to develop your e-learning end product in our Services (“End Product”), including modifying and embedding the Content Files into your End Product, and reproducing and distributing the Content Files if integrated in your End Product. However, you may not use or distribute the Content Files on a stand-alone basis outside of your End Product.

I would take this to mean, I can't use the picture of the character directly in Powerpoint (even if the presentation belongs to the product) - but I could take a screenshot from the course, and use that? (even if I cut it down to only the part of the screen I want for my presentation? )

Can you clarify this for us? 

Thanks

Adam

Whatever legal mumbo-jumbo you get back, you can use SL to create and present slides. Set them to advance when user clicks a transparent shape or hotspot that covers the entire screen,and  publish it to CD. Place it on a flash drive, or publish to the web, and place it on a flash drive, or accessible spot on the web, (Test it, Dropbox and Google don't always play nicely) and the viewers won't be able to tell that it isn't Powerpoint.

Hi Adam,

Good question, and I love Walt's approach! You could also add Content Library 360 characters to Presenter 360 courses.

In your scenario, you are right: You can use an image of a course that has a Content Library 360 image in it, but not on a stand-alone basis.

Can I use Content Library 360 assets outside of Articulate e-learning courses?

You may edit and use Content Library 360 assets any way you like in the courses you build with Articulate 360 apps. However, you can't use assets outside of Articulate 360 apps. For example, their use is prohibited in product brochures or websites. See section 2.11 in our terms of service.

Let me know if any more questions or thoughts pop up!
