To help the astronomical community prepare for the upcoming Cycle 1 proposal opportunity with the James Webb Space Telescope, the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) has collected JWST-related instructional videos on our new JWST Observer YouTube channel. Currently, the site contains 39 videos. More videos will be added as they are developed.

The videos are presented in playlists by topic and include:

  • Short training videos to assist you with proposing support tools, such as the Astronomer’s Proposal Tool (APT) and the Exposure Time Calculator (ETC), as well as specialized and JWST instrument support.
  • Longer community lectures on JWST instruments, science planning topics, and software tools from past training events and workshops.
