Intuitive, Simple, and Quick: Create interactive tutorials in minutes!

Roundtable 20: Live Presentation ID: 59001

Abstract: Save time and frustration by making tutorials that not only capture the steps as you do them but can also be used in 6 different modes: Try it, watch it, view it, do it, print it, and quiz it! iorad, the tutorial builder, is a free extension for an interactive tutorial maker. In this session I'll show you how to use the iorad extension to create your own tutorials and to access it to find the HowTos you may need while you're using Google products. The tutorials you create in iorad document the steps you capture and automatically create the accompanying text. You can also choose to add a voice to read the text, or you can record your own narration. Then use the tutorials with your students or your staff. That's it; you're done! AND... You have my word that this isn't a sales pitch. Everything you'll be shown is available for FREE.


Learning Objectives Key Takeaways 1. Understand the workflow of using a free, online tutorial builder to save time when preparing for teaching and learning. 2.
