We have discovered one of the coolest 'teaching tools' on the market. It's called Iorad. It allows us to capture the individual steps to accomplish a particular task, including the mouse clicks and hot-keys used in the process. When you click on any of the below links you will procede step-by-step. Iorad offers you several options -- to step through the process, ask you for an affirmative response in the form of a mouse click in the appropriate spot; or simply to read (listen -- it offers a pretty realistic computer voice) the lesson; and to print out the lesson. Go to the end of the table for more information re: Iorad
