This lesson begins with a good tutorial on how to work in blackboard. It is very nice to see exactly what you need to do, rather than instructions in the form of a list for visual learners. After this is done, students have to actually click everything they would need to for their tasks in blackboard. This is great because before they ever get the chance to do it, they have done it. This lesson appeals to different learning styles because you see it, hear it, and also have to do it. This method of creating a tutorial could be very useful for anything that needs to be done on a computer and gives practice throughout (This is something I would like to learn after viewing this lesson!). The quiz at the end of the sections is a good review to make sure that you are ready to try this on your own. It is also useful that the video jumps to an answer if you get it wrong.

Well done tutorial. I like the way you start by explaining and showing the process you are about to teach. Next, the steps are very clear and you provide timely stopping points for the learner to go through the process along with the step by step demonstration. Lastly, you check for understanding by using quizzes. This tutorial s very straight forward with little distraction to confuse the learner.
