Current legal mandates require that students with disabilities have access to assistive technology devices and/or services. In order to provide quality services to students, both special and general education teachers must be knowledgeable about assistive technologies so that they have the necessary skills for implementation of services. To meet this need, video tutorials of commonly used assistive technologies were developed to teach educators how to use the technologies. An overview of research that was conducted using this medium is availble.
