Mike Taylor joined #IDIODC Oct 12.

Designing and developing instruction is a creative and fun process. But it can also be filled with boring and frustrating details and "administrivia". In the not-so-distant past automating simple workflow, processes meant learning to code and to program sequenced tasks. Sometimes it requires doing them yourself, over and over again, manually. But not anymore.

Mike Taylor joined us to talk about no-code tools that can help you improve your workflow and make you more efficient. If you're not sure what no-code tools are and how they can help you, then this episode is perfect for you. We started with the basics and worked up to more advanced no-code tools, and even added AI to the conversation.

The chat room also added some of their favorite no-code tools that you may already be using.  Check out the replay.
