Ah, yes. This simply might be a pricing issue. Do you give the tutorials
away? Maybe you should repackage the tutorials and call them CBT (computer
based training) and charge appropriately for them.
If you would rather pack class rooms then sell CBT, price the CBT at a point
where class room training is more economical to your valued customers.
