Button Description
See It button This is an automatic walk-through of the tutorial. The steps advance by themselves. However, if you wish to move along faster, you can manually advance to the next step by pressing [Enter]. There is also a pause option that allows you to slow things down.
 Try It button This is the most common mode and the option generally used by direct linking. In this tutorial, you will see one step at a time and then be prompted to complete an action. The directions may prompt you to press a button, select with your mouse, or type something.  If you wish to move along faster, you can also advance to the next step by pressing [Enter].
 Know It This is used to grade your understanding of how to navigate through MyBlugold CampS. You will be prompted to go through the steps on your own; there will be a yellow dialog box to the right that you can consult if you forget the next step. If you click Show Step you will be shown the next action in the sequence.
Note: This option is not available on all tutorials.
 Do It button This is intended to be available while you are in the program itself by bringing up a small window that contains the tutorial. If you encountered difficulty, you could use this option to be walked through the steps necessary to complete the action you were working on.
