In my opinion the tutorials are most useful to me. Although I have vast computer and Internet knowledge, I do tend to scan web pages too quickly, and miss some details. The library tutorial is very useful for me, since it points out helpful features like database connection issues and the ask a librarian feature. The tutorial also shows convenient ways to narrow my searches to find exactly what I need. The digital stories actually are not very useful to me. I learn much easier by reading information, rather then listening to an audio file or live speaker.

If I am listening to an audio file or digital story I will need to replay the file a few times over in order to make sure I understood everything.
