Tango is a revolutionary Free Google Chrome Extension that automatically creates a written step-by-step guide in real-time without the need for video recording or writing down your own step-by-step guide. Tango transcribes the actions you make with your mouse, URLs, and screenshots, which can all come together to create the step-by-step guide. Ultimately, this is an easy-to-use and game-changing tool that can help you amplify how you provide written instructions for your students to come back to again and again to support them in their learning.Β
