As it proceeds participants will be encouraged to identify topics in courses they teach, plan, and ultimately produce short presentations on them for potential use with their students. The tutorial introduces the key hardware and software tools and provides basic instruction on using them.  Begin the first part of the course at the Legal Information Institute website.
