The Internet is a great resource for conducting research, but it is also a powerful tool for learning how to use computer programs and software. By adding the words " video tutorial" to the end of a search query, results that contain videos with step-by-step instructions on exactly how to do a particular activity will appear. The most popular tutorials are on how to use specific pieces of software and similar computer tutorials.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

  • Internet connection
  • Search term
  • Computer with appropriate software installed

    Using Online Video Tutorials

  1. Open an Internet browser and navigate to google.com.

  2. Type the search term with the phrase "video tutorial" in the search field and press the "Google Search" button.

  3. Select the most appropriate result and click the link to open the web page.

  4. Start the software associated with the video tutorial.

  5. Re-size both the software window and the Internet browser window so that they can be viewed side by side.

  6. Scroll the web page window until the video player is centered and press the "Play" button.

  7. Follow the steps shown in the video tutorial in the software window, pausing and rewinding as necessary.


Tips & Warnings

  • Using Google (or any other traditional search engine) will provide results from any web page that has the search term and "video tutorial". The same search can be conducted on video sharing sites such as YouTube in order to speed up the search process.
  • There may not always be video tutorials on the subject being searched for, however, removing the word "video" will provide results with written tutorials that may suffice.
