Icons8 for elearning development

This week we are looking at Icons8 as a platform to use for e-learning development.

We have been using Icons8 for many years now and love the progressive approach from the Icons8 development team. There are updates and new functionality added regularly.

The company also provides free design tools.

Let me know if you would like us to develop something more specific for your Docebo use. API development options are available as well.

Happy eLearning Designing!


We are always looking for ways to keep cost down for our clients and we take a practical approach to design.

TechSmith Snagit 2021 – Darn it’s Good !

TechSmith Snagit 2021 – Darn it’s Good !

TechSmith’s latest Snagit release, version 2021 is, to put it mildly …… mind blowing – eye- popping , absolutely, mouthwatering marvelous! The interface is a total rebuild of this versatile tool.

I have been using Snagit since its first release waaaay back in 1990 ! 

For those of you be reading this blog piece Snagit is a screenshot program that captures video display and audio output.

Originally developed for Microsoft Windows operating systems, recent versions have also been available for Mac OS, but with fewer features.

Snagit is available in English, German, Korean, and Japanese versions.

Snagit replaces the native print screen function with additional features. Newer versions allow batch capture of embedded items such as links, pictures, and multimedia. The user can set parameters and keyboard shortcuts to capture particular types of data, which are stored in a folder called “Catalog” by default. The software can also follow links in web pages, capturing the specified data from the linked pages.

Accessories extend its features. For example, Flickr Output enables the user to upload screen captures to a Flickr account.

The latest release also provides a feature for creating animated GIF files, quickly and easily.

We have a series of videos available on our other business website mindlogik.com

Why not check them out? If you are interested in a demo or trial, you can contact us or purchase directly from the website.

The new Camtasia 2021

The new Camtasia 2021

Camtasia is one of my favourite tools for eLearning content development. Camtasia 2021 has just been released and I am really pleased with the new updates to functionality.

These have moved Camptasia out of the realm of video editing and solidly into the realm of rapid e-learning development.

Here is a quick video we created showcasing the new features.

Design–I consider it a cornerstone of eLearning course development success.

 When I design I consider 3W’s

  1.  What needs to be communicated.
  2. What level of learner engagement is required, and:
  3. What are the learning goals or achievement outcomes
