Adobe Captivate9 Assets Library

Adobe Captivate 9 has come up with a library of 25,000+ media elements. Let us know how this library answers the following questions:

Why do we need to use these elements?

To make online course development easier and quicker. All you need to do is select one template which suits your eLearning course, change the background or any other color correction without touching the actions. Any instructional designer will be able to do that; you can delete or add actions based on your requirement. This will facilitate rapid eLearning development.

What are the different types of assets available in the library?

The library has a wide variety of assets including Games, Cutout People, Interactions, Scenarios, Course Starters, Themes, Layouts, and Navigation Players.

Available Formats:

Interactions, Scenarios, Course Starters, and Layouts are available in .cptx (Captivate) as well as .pptx (Power point) format.

Cutout People are available in .png (Portable Network Graphics) format.

The remaining are available only in .cptx format.

Elements are added or updated every day.

Let’s now look at one of the elements.


Games are a great way to strengthen eLearning modules as they are interesting and interactive.
The learner does everything in a sequence fallowed by instructions, and this makes game-based training methods very effective for learners to understand and stay connected to the modules.


There are 12 creative Captivate games of which, I am going to share the top 5 games.

1. Trivia

We have two downloadable links for the source files – Captivate 8 responsive template and non-responsive template file. This source file can be used in version 8+, i.e., we can use this source file in Captivate 8 or 9.

It will not be supported by Captivate 7 or lower versions. Take a look at the screenshot given below for the look and feel of the game.
