AbstractInformation design exists to convey information to users. When users have trouble understanding or using the information, the design has failed its primary purpose (Katz 17). When a design has failed and cannot be adjusted, the logical next step is to create another design to assist in using the first design. Tutorials are the perfect opportunity to help fill the void in a failed design. With the assistance of video and/or screen sharing technology, designers can create guided step-by-step instruction to assist users in navigating a process. This paper will examine how video tutorials can fill the void in coherence and transparency left by a failed design, including methods for creating successful video tutorials and an examination of equipment necessary for recording.
