Want to learn by watching a video? We have created a wide variety of video tutorials on IRSA tools and services, and we frequently update them or add more. They range from "micro-tutorials" -- very brief examples of features or options -- to longer videos capturing demonstrations of the sort you might find if you asked IRSA staff at an AAS meeting for a demonstration of a tool, or very long versions of talks given at conferences. The main IRSA YouTube Channel lists them by date uploaded or popularity, which is not very helpful for finding the specific one you want. The videos are also grouped into playlists for easier browsing. They are:

All of the videos are in HD and have closed captioning (CC) in English, though you may need to help your browser recognize these options by using the YouTube menu options at the bottom right of the video window.

For the Lesson Plan Idea videos, the wiki pages referenced in some of the videos are here for the cluster one, and here for the SSW one. There is also one for the "Dustier, Messier Messier Marathon" one. Have an idea for a lesson plan video you want to see? Let us know at the helpdesk!
