Screen tutors are easily accessed, short videos, which help support you in using Units of Sound. For students, every activity in Units of Sound, from the Welcome screen to Dictation, has a short screen tutor, which demonstrates what to do. This means students can work independently, without having to ask a teacher or wait for help; a real bonus for a teacher working with a group of students.
Similarly, the screen tutors on each section in the Tutor Area help support tutors while they are getting used to using the program.
