There are so many technologies available that could be used for content creation, it is impossible to cover them all. New tools are produced regularly, and older ones disappear, so giving specific examples can be a tricky thing to do as tools can become outdated very quickly. Here we’ve provided an overview of the kinds of tools available and some brief guidance for things you should be aware of when using them.
