What E-Learning Tools Do You Use?

Being a bit of an e-learning nerd, I thought it would be cool to share some of the tools I use at my work. I've been working with my current company for over a year now. For the most part, I'm working with the training of field technicians and support folks.

I've been using Adobe Captivate for basic e-learning courses. The company has been transitioning some Flash projects to Adobe Capivate over the past few years and they brought me in as an expert on Adobe Captivate to help drive more use of that tool. It's been well received and I think it will be a big part of what my team uses for the foreseeable future.

However, much of my work during my first year has been outside of Adobe Captivate. I've done several performance support projects. For those projects I've used Dreamweaver with some jQuery, CSS, and SQL. These are projects that I really love because they allow me to use more of my toolkit.

I've also worked on several video projects. In the last year I've learned how to use professional quality video equipment. But the nerd in me actually likes the video editing more. I use Adobe Premeire, Adobe Audition, and a few other tools to edit videos for learners.

So those are some of the tools I get nerdy about at my day job. What tools do you get nerdy about?
