Five years later, how's the eLearning industry?
About five years ago, I was looking to transition my graphic/web design career to possibly include eLearning as I had 15 years of instructor experience. I came here often to absorb as much knowledge as I could. I purchased Captivate and did a couple of examples but found it limiting compared to what I was seeing done with Articulate. I was hired soon after but now find myself in the same position I was five years ago in looking for a possible new career path.
For those currently in the industry, how would you say things are going? Is there growth? A fear I had back then was that software improvements would make eLearning easier for anyone to create which might eliminate the freelance creator with graphic background.
Also, if just now getting into the industry, what advice might you share. I'm just in the research phase so not committed to any particular software or direction.
Thanks for any advice in advance.
