Over many semesters, our student evaluations indicate a desire for additional materials that enable the student to practice completing questions similar in style to questions on an exam. To address this desire, we create videos that move students step-by-step through problems using the application ExplainEverything. This paper describes the creation of these videos and how they can serve as powerful teaching tools. In addition, the paper provides a summary of how students perceive the videos and an interpretation of these results.
