Excellent tutorials! I have been using these tutorials in my organic chemistry labs for a few years now as part of the prelab preparation process. They provide students with a detailed explanation of the theory as a well as one or more videos showing experimental setup and the technique actually being performed. Safety issues and troubleshooting advice are also addressed.

I have had students comment on how useful these tutorials are, and the only criticism I have heard is that more techniques should be covered.
