This guide was created to give teachers and service providers a starting point for using our tutorials. You may already refer people to our site for self-paced, independent learning. This guide will help you use our content to supplement your own programs, tutorials, and courses.
How you use our tutorials will depend largely on your organization’s capabilities and the needs of the populations you serve. We’ve found that there are as many ways to use our content as there are organizations using it. Some organizations take a largely hands-off approach; others choose to integrate our tutorials into their own instructor-led classes.
Here are some examples of ways a group could use our tutorials to provide instruction.
These are just a few examples, but the possibilities are nearly endless. Let us know how you use our site by contacting us.

If your classroom does not have reliable Internet access, you can print out the lessons. Most lessons have a printer icon in the top-right corner of the screen. Clicking this icon will show you all the pages of that lesson on one screen, which you can then print out for yourself or your students.
Unfortunately, there is no way to print the entire tutorial at once; you will need to print each lesson separately. It’s also important to be aware that some of the tutorials are more than 100 pages long when printed in their entirety, so you may want to be selective about which lessons you print.
Because our video tutorials are hosted on YouTube, you may not be able to view them from places where YouTube is blocked. If your school or organization blocks YouTube, here are some alternative ways to access our videos.
