 Video Tutorials Master Listing

APT is used by both HST and JWST proposers to plan and submit their observing proposals. There are generic aspects of APT that are used by both branches, and then there are aspects that are specific to one or the other of these missions. Table 1 lists video help specifically made for the JWST branch of APT. Since APT has been around for a number of years on the HST side, there are HST or generic APT training materials and videos available as well, some of which may be useful for JWST users. These Legacy Videos are provided in Table 2, with the caveat that the details may be different as these videos were made for older versions of APT.
