Technology Tools (Updates Coming Soon)

What are the tools of the trade?  

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 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.

TPLD Disclaimer: We help for free and remain neutral on purchases.

Some of these resources may link to content creators who offer both free and paid content. Please do not assume that is an endorsement of paid services. As always, TPLD neither encourages nor discourages the purchase of any paid program. We encourage good research and critical thinking. Conduct a self-assessment to figure out what you actually need and know your "why" for any money you spend. Ask people who have gone through the program, read Reddit and other review sources, and compare prices. Most of the time, you can get a comparable program/course/resource for free! Remember, no program, certification, or even accredited graduate degree can guarantee that you get a job, that you get a particular salary, or that you find success within a timeframe--success depends on you, and you can do it for free in many cases if you put in the work and persevere. It may not be easy, but there are many examples of how possible it is!
