Trainer Tips for Guided Exercises
• Based on time available and understanding of the audience, do 2-3
exercises together, including Customize View, Create a Watch List,
and Navigate to Student View and find More details.
• Trainer should walk users through the steps using the anonymized
site on the screen while users complete the same task on their own
• Break users into pairs to complete the remaining exercises or
encourage them to complete them on their own
• Ensure there is enough time at the end of training for the pairs to
share their ideas for implementation with the rest of the users
