Should you create a tutorial for them? Will they watch it?

Scenario: Ever since RefWorks launched their new interface, everyone you talk to has had trouble with it. You used to refer people to the help content within RefWorks but they don’t seem to have tutorials for their content anymore. Should you create a tutorial on RefWorks?
