Free (or cheaper) eLearning Tools

While working on a recent project I found myself going on a frantic search for just the right picture.  Having the right resources at your disposal can definitely make or break the amount of time you spend on a eLearning project.  So, I decided to update my toolbox and possible solutions with some resources that are free or lower cost than the mainstream product.  The items marked with asterisk are ones I've personally used for one project or another.  

Do you have an "I can't live without" website or service? Please feel free to add any resources I missed by commenting below or tweeting me (@jvalley0714).
