I received a question today that I really wasn't sure how to answer and thought that lots of folks might have thoughts around this. Here's the question:
I have some extra budget money and I need to invest in software and hardware that will help me create cutting edge, top shelf eLearning programs.
I already have these software programs:
- Articulate Suite '09
- Adobe Master Suite CS3 (Not sure that I really need to upgrade to CS4)
- Camtasia & Snag It
Are there any other must have software programs? It has to work with Articulate of course! Free software is always nice but I don't mind paying for high quality products. I have still and video cameras, a mic and a computer ... do you think I need any other hardware items? I'm happy with my LMS, so I don't need help there.
I can't claim that many of us will face the problem of having a budget that we need to use before the end of the year. But I thought it might be fun to help someone else spend their money.
I realize that with this little bit of information, it's almost impossible to have the right answer, but I'm sure there are lots of interesting possibilities.
What purchases would you suggest?
