Team Maui Family YMCA,
I’ve uploaded a list of online video tutorials that will teach you how to work this site and see how easy it is to add, edit, and delete content. And that includes photos, audio, and video.

Here are several more video tutorials for you to work through. These tutorials teach you how to handle more complex things like links, pictures, audio, and video clips.
