Instructional Designer

What software do I use at work?

If your trying to become an Instructional Designer, you may be wondering what software you need to know.

Here is a list of the software that I use on a weekly basis in my job as an instructional designer for Lenovo.

Articulate 360 : Storyline & Rise (on occasion). We create most of our eLearnings in Storyline with the occassional Rise course as needed.

Office 365: PowerPoint, Word, Outlook, Microsoft Teams. Every eLearning course we create always has an accompanying PowerPoint for downloading and offline learning.

TechSmith: Camtasia & Snagit – Great programs for throwing together quick videos, taking screenshots and keeping to your design theme!

Adobe suite – we are blessed with Creative Cloud, although I will admit to using Photoshop daily. All my photo editing is done in Photoshop.

Some ID’s I work with also use Captivate to create simulation based eLearning.
