    Online and video tutorials are important to students because they add another dimension of learning that makes the educational experience more effective. Online tutorials allow a classroom setting to come to life, offering different perspectives and tools that students might not normally be able to take advantage of in their learning. 

    The ability to pause, rewind, stop, and play a recorded video tutorial from a DVD or online helps students replay important points that they need to remember, which is essential for memory retention.

    Online and video tutorials that allow for interaction, such as computer software lessons, provide a "hands-on" approach that can help reinforce the information. (Source: Houston Chronicle)
