One of the best tutorial web sites I've seen is Atomic Learning, which
has video tutorials on many common desktop programs (word, excel,
dreamweaver, flash, etc.).  The tutorials are terrific and would be
a good model to work from in creating a set for Rev.

It's subscription-based, but you can look at some tutorials for free.
