What Do I Use

I used to keep this information in the description of all my videos but it occurred to me that it would make more sense to have it on my website in one location. That way I can update it once instead of 250 or more times. Here is a list of the hardware and software I use to design and develop eLearning.

Adobe Captivate

My primary eLearning authoring tool. I have used others before but Captivate has been my goto eLearning software since the beginning.  https://www.adobe.com/ca/products/captivate.html

Adobe Presenter Video Express

I use PVX at least once a week when I create my Captivate Tutorials for my YouTube channel. As far as I'm concerned, PVX is the Garageband of eLearning software. It's simple to use and self-contained and available for an extremely reasonable price. https://www.adobe.com/ca/products/presenter-video-express.html


I use Storyblocks for the vast majority of images in my eLearning courseware. Not only do they offer a wide array of choice when it comes to images but they are a great value as well. Use my referral link to save $50 on a yearly subscription.  https://videoblocks.go2cloud.org/SH8w



Managing a YouTube channel can be extremely time-consuming. I use Tubebuddy to handle all my SEO, as well as a bunch of cool features to save me time and effort. Use my referral link to install the FREE browser extension and consider signing up for their pro features as well. https://www.tubebuddy.com/PaulWilsonLearning

Adobe Creative Cloud

In addition to Adobe Captivate and PVX, I also subscribe to the Creative Cloud. Having access to tools like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Audition, and Media Encoder is a must for eLearning developers who build rich multimedia courseware. http://amzn.to/2y56Dtx

Logitech HP Pro Webcam C920

If you are going to be a YouTuber, you have got to have something better for your videos than what's built into your laptop. http://amzn.to/2hWhxZk

Blue Yeti USB Microphone

While video is important, probably more important is your sound quality. I use a Blue Yeti USB Microphone while I'm extremely happy with. Get one here. http://amzn.to/2i9ubIc

Microsoft Office 365

Hey, you gotta write an email, document or presentation file. Gotta have Office for all your basic productivity software. http://amzn.to/2AdZZm1
