Session Info:

Our faculty and students have varying experience and comfort with technology. As the CVC Course Design Rubric notes, providing just-in-time learning and technology support is a necessary component of quality online courses. That said, creating tutorials, when needs and technology change rapidly, can be arduous. That is, unless you know how to Tango! This workshop will take you on a quick tour of a Chrome tool that allows you to create fast, accurate, image-based tutorials of web-based processes. We’ll show you how to capture the process, edit your tutorial, and add the tutorial to a Canvas page. You can even use the tutorial to create a short video to help your users navigate complex processes. Creating tutorials does not have to be onerous. With this FREE Chrome extension, you’ll be tango-ing in no time.

Session Outcomes:

  • Create a web-based tutorial, with images.
  • Edit the tutorial using Tango to deliver succinct, accurate instructions.
  • Embed the tutorial in a Canvas page
