Martin Uhrig

Founder of the E-learning agency tecwriter

I have been involved in e-learning for over 10 years, specializing in the authoring tool Adobe Captivate. In 2009, I took the leap into self-employment. Today, my team and I implement exciting projects such as screencasts, e-learning modules and explanatory films for clients from different industries.

Melanie Denner

Technical editor for learning media at SEW-EURODRIVE

How does a gear unit work? What is a frequency inverter? How do I calculate the motor load? Technical training can be boring, but it doesn't have to be. That's why I produce exciting educational films at SEW-EURODRIVE for employee training and development.
