The tutorials are designed as slides with voice-over narration.  The narration will start automatically with each slide.  You may stop the narration by clicking on "stop narration".  You may play it again by clicking on "play narration".  Dr Valian's voice will say "next slide" when it is time for you to advance by clicking "next slide".

Those using slower dialup connections may wish to bypass the narration altogether.  Transcripts for each tutorial can be downloaded below; to bypass the narration, simply click on the link called "bypass narration".   You can print out a transcript of the narration and read it as you look at each slide. 

An outline frame at the left of the screen lists all the slides.  At any time, you can go to the outline and click on whatever slide interests you. 

You can view a tutorial by yourself or with a group of other people.  Some students have told us they have viewed the tutorials in a group, and have stopped after many slides to discuss the material.  

Before and after tutorial 1, a questionnaire will pop up.  We value your opinions and are interested in knowing what you already think about gender issues.  The questionnaire allows you to tell us.  But it is up to you; you can answer as few or as many questions as you like, and you can submit a blank questionnaire.  Your activity on the questionnaires is completely voluntary.  When you click on the area that says "submit questionnaire and start tutorial",  the tutorial will begin.  If you wish, you can send us queries or comments; we welcome them (see "contact us").

Technical matters: you will probably have everything you need in order to listen to the narration. If you do not currently have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can download it for free by clicking here. If you do not currently have Flash Player, you can download it for free by clicking here.  We realize that some equipment will interact in unexpected ways with our tutorials, so please tell us about your technical problems.  We hope, however, that the technical imperfections you encounter will not prevent you from addressing issues like the content, organization, and presentation of the material.
