• Develop and maintain eLearning content using various technologies such as Trivantis, Lectora, Articulate Storyline, Adobe Creative Suite (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, and After Effects), Unity, Captivate, and Camtasia.
• Carry out all phases of audio and video production.
• Collaborate with the team in brainstorming, input meetings, and creative reviews.
• Create high-quality and engaging instructional media and visual elements to include, but not limited to, infographics, videos, photo editing, illustrations, and animations.
