Technology Tools


On this page, you can scroll down to view a resource chart with information on different tools of the trade.

Teachers at all different stages in their transition into L&D/Instructional Design, amazing mentors, and professional instructional designers share "must know" resources every Tuesday in our LinkedIn group HERE!

#TechTuesday happens every week in our LinkedIn group! Please join the conversation!


  • You do not need to become an expert at every tool listed below! You will need to learn either Articulate Storyline 360 or Adobe Captivate (learn more about the difference between the two HERE) well enough to create clean, functional, and professional products, but just like PowerPoint, you don't have to know all the bells and whistles to do that, and you will pick up more as you go! From there, pick one or two video and audio editors.

  • Remember, you can always learn more after learning one! If you try to learn them all at once, you may become overwhelmed. Pick one at a time to learn!
