Tutorial / guide for using Landsat 8 Views in ArcMap?

I'm using Landsat 8 Views for the first time, in ArcMap 10.6.1. 


I understand it's an archive of data but I cannot work out how to view imagery from different dates (I have managed to access the various band combinations but can't see controls for date). I'm hoping there must be a user guide or tutorial or similar, but despite much searching I cannot find one.


What I am hoping to be able to do eventually is get students to use the data for a simple supervised or unsupervised classification over a small area, so as to compare and quantify changes (as far as possible) for two dates. Is this possible?


We have org accounts for Online, and I am signed in while trying to work with the imagery.


Edit: I found this over on Stack Exchange: arcgis desktop - Landsat8 View Imagery Service in ArcMap Layer Time Issue - Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchang… 

So following that I have enabled Time on the layer and set up the time slider so I can step through looking for different imagery dates, but it's kind of frustrating and slow. Any suggestions - is there another way I can do this?
