I have been studying German lately. I have come across one course material. In that they are using dort and da interchangeably in different sentences. I want to know when you use what?

You might try looking at each of the several posts that have asked similar questions. They give good explanations of the different contexts in which da and dort are appropriate. Note that da in some contexts also corresponds to situations in which an English speaker might say here.
