The objective of this tutorial is to recognize and explain how tutorials have become an educational trend in today's world.

Tutorials come in many forms; however, most come in the way of a video in order to instruct people how to complete a task. There are many ways to find tutorials, but most would argue that Youtube.com is to most widely known and popular way to get your hands on any type of tutorial. Thankfully, there are software tools such as Snagit that allow people to compose and produce their own tutorials.

Tutorial Software: Snagit

Snagit is a software that can be downloaded to any computer. It allows a person to take screenshot pictures and video from their computer screen, and with this software any computer tutorial imaginable can be created. This is not the only software out there to use, but I personally recommend it. It has been a great resource.
