This is a really easy to use and an excellent tutorial on citing a research paper.

Looks like a good overview. The closed captioning seems to follow closely with the text. The bar moves easily through the pages which would allow teacher to move through pages for classroom instruction.

There are a few delays in the closed captioning. Has anyone else noticed this or is it just my system? This will be a great tool for my composition 1 students.

This narrated presentation on MLA and APA formatting for citations does a nice job of walking students through how and where to find all elements needed for a citation.  It's really handy for electronic sources. It does move rather slowly and has some timing gaps, but it's very nicely done overall.  It's also closed captioned, but there are some captioning delays and errors.
