The purpose of this paper is to describe the process of creating a web‐based tutorial with interactive leaning components.


The paper details a step by step outline from assessing the need for instruction through the development, design and posting of an instructional tutorial on the internet.


The purpose of the tutorial was to help community college nursing students find appropriate resources to support a research paper. Completing the project revealed two valuable lessons to keep in mind when constructing any instructional tool. There must be a true need for the instruction and the instruction must have a simple and basic design.


The paper offers insights into creating a web‐based tutorial.
