Today, many Websites offer a rich set of features. Explaining the usage of those features is a task, than can be done either via a static help text explanation, or using javascript libraries like intro.js, that offer the capabilities for implementation of an interactive learning process. To test the efficiency of these approaches compared to a static approach or no help at all, the thesis should look at existing libraries for tutorials and compare them in terms of features, choose one library to implement a tutorial in the context of an idea generation web system, and compare the perceived helpfulness of the system in a user test.
