With the growth of distance education and off-campus access to library resources, librarians are increasingly laced with a new challenge. As libraries struggle with this dilemma and strive to create information literacy programs, librarians want tools to help them reach their users in the web environment. Microsoft PowerPoint was one of the first tools to offer an easy and visual means of providing instruction. Tools like PowerPoint and ViewletBuilder are wonderful instructional aides, but lack the fluidity of seeing real-time database searching. This is why a librarian may want to consider video capturing software for online tutorials.
