This could be a good reinforcement for students learning MLA style. I particularly like that the tutorial goes into detail about the format changes necessary when moving from an informaiton object to a citation, since this is something I've noticed students struggling with. It would be nice of the tutorial interspersed activities to allow students to practice the citations and to break up the content since there are so many details included and the tutorial is rather long.
